I´m trying to learn a bit about professional photography, for my trip to europe in october, until then i´m trying to shoot some small trips.

I have a few action figures and I thought it would be nice to take some cool pictures of them.

I took these using the monitor as background (the forest and the energy ball), and went for a shallow depth of field to create an ilusion..

I´d would love some sugestions to use in future shots of this kind11947537_888202507894062_4068882963636258894_n.jpg11700579_875312565849723_4532683367412052276_o-1.jpg

I actually think it is an awesome idea! If you would not tell me it was a monitor I probably would not guess. I think shallow DoF works great here. The first action figure looks very realistic. One thing I would maybe do is to turn the brightness of the monitor down to make the background a bit darker.

Very cool.  I’ve used an ipad screen as a background and it has also worked well.

Welcome to the forum, lex_lima.  These are great.  Give us more.

Wow thanks! I´ll consider changing the brightness for my next photos.

It would have been a great ideia in the jungle background!

and also thanks for the warm welcome!

You should check this: http://www.wired.com/2015/09/h…..stagram/ 

It is an instagram account everyone is talking about. I would assume a lot of those picture were possibly taking using this method.
