When I was taking pictures for my laser pointer tutorials, my Akuma from the Square Enix Play Arts Kai Street Fighter line was indisposed. I had actually ripped one of his arms out of its shoulder socket, as the hinge that allows the forward / back motion was fused and ripped when I tried to free the joint. The customer service folks at Big Bad Toy Store were great, and sent me a replacement figure.
Set up for this shot was pretty simple. I shot in the dark with a 100 ISO setting on the camera, so the shutter would stay open for quite a bit of time. I had my LED book lights set to the sides, but pointed away from the figures so only a minimal amount of light would shine on them. Then I used my blue / purple laser pointer and mad made sure to move it all over the fireball accessory while the shutter was open – that way the pic would get a lot of bright light on the fireball itself, as well as throw off diffused purple highlights on Akuma and Ryu.
