Welcome to the GeekShot Photo Exclusive Series. This will be a weekly post featuring cool, interesting, or just plain awesome moments we have captured during San Diego Comic-Con and WonderCon. Each week we’ll post a photo by Beth or James of GeekShot Photography. We may include a short story about the photo, but sometimes we’ll just let the photo speak for itself.
About This Photo
Wonder Woman statue at the Sideshow Collectibles booth at San Diego Comic-Con 2015
You had to know a statue photo was coming sooner rather than later. I actually spent some time on two different days shooting at Sideshow and other exhibitors that had nice displays of toys and statues. This one stood out as one of my favorites.
The main thing about this photo that makes it different than most I took at the booth is the convention center lights. Normally the lights are a distraction or hindrance to getting a decent photo. They reflect on the glass and you have to work around them or, more likely, accept that they’ll be there. Luckily I was able to use them this time to help give the photo a dynamic feel. If you look closely though, the reflection of other lights still caused a problem at the end of her hair. It is a small flaw in the photo overall, so I was willing to let it go.
Did you get a favorite capture of a statue this year? Let us know in the comments.
