Hard as Iron
“Hard as iron, sharp as steel. Stop for no man, you better beg and kneel.”
Stylized battle pose of my custom Ace of Diamonds card magnifigure, taken with a macro lens. Behind the figure is a dark blue pillowcase with the red and orange party bulb shined against it, which showed up as a swirled pattern of dark purple and blue.
This shot was especially difficult to take, as I had to find just the right angle which the pike didn’t cover the face, and so that the heart insignia on the chest was legible.Getting the elongated double-sided pike weapon into the whole shot without clipping was also a challenge, since the macro lens has a 1:1 ratio.
