1:6 Hot Toys Joker with Bank Robber Joker Head

To celebrate Heath Ledger's posthumous Best Supporting Actor win at the 2009 Oscars, I decided to take this figure out for a shoot.

This figure uses the body and costume of the first version of Hot Toys Joker...

...and the head from Hot Toys Bank Robber Joker.

Here's how I set up my lights and light tent with the black background for this shoot. I changed the settings to 'Available Light' and reduced the exposure to the minimum on my outdated point & click camera. I've a few more tips on toy photography in this post and I hope some of it will come in handy for you.

I still haven't figured out the optimal settings for long shots, so all of the following pix are close ups.

I didn't use a tripod to snap these pix, and the blur caused by slight movement is very obvious under low light conditions.

And why deviate from the norm. As usual, here's pix of what came before.

    i will use my DC direct figures to bash you. Their plastic is so hard that they can cause mortal wounds. Seriously I'm only gonna get Wonder Woman and I'm finished with the line.
