Hello There! Today I am excited to share a photoshoot that I am immensely proud of. The photos came out really excellent. This photoshoot features one of my favorite Black Series figs and Star Wars characters, Captain Rex. Shoutout to my sis for helping me achieve some of the effects!
My sister and I looked for interesting areas to photograph Rex in. We found this cool mossy ground area to snap a pic. The morning sun kept moving, but I was able to use it well, thankfully.
The best helmet maybe in the entire galaxy.
Captain Rex carries 2 DC-17 pistols and marks his own droid kills on his armor.
I really like how he looks almost exactly like Temuera Morrison, but with blonde hair. XD
This and the next two photos I tried to edit to look as if blaster shot were being fired from the enemy. Tell me which of these three you like the most!
My sis helped me with these by dropping dirt from above and while I shot in sports mode to catch the action.
I added the blaster effects in editing. BOOM!
What if captain Rex met Boba Fett? They never did cross paths. The Boba Fett fig belongs to my sis.
They are technically the same person. Boba does not have accelerated aging as Jango Fett’s adopted son, but he is still a clone.
I sense some tension. Who will shoot first? (See what I did there?)
My sister really loves these shots of Rex doing some surveillance.
“I’m observing near 500 hundred clankers. Arc Trooper Fives, what is your position?”
I had to get really low to the ground to take these shots.
This shot was really neat because the sun was shining behind Rex making a silhouette.
I love close-up shots. I really want to get a macro lens for my camera so I can take even more close-ups!
If you are wondering about the title of this post, go to time 7:03 in following video of Star Wars the Clone Wars (and a bit of Rebels). It is one of my very favorite Captain Rex quotes. 🙂 Actually, the entire video is really neat because it highlights some of Rex’s greatest moments (and of all things, it was made by a YouTuber called REX), but it is spoiler–y if you have not watched the show. If you don’t mind that though, definitely go right ahead. 🙂
Like I said in my Captain Marvel Review post on my personal blog: I am super excited that the Clone Wars is returning for a final season! I am very much a Star Wars geek.
