Maria Bernard – Hana no Yousei-san – Photoshoot


Today we’re taking a look at a figure I’ve had for a little while, but never quite knew how to shoot. This is Daiki Kougyou’s infamous¬†Maria Bernard figure. As you can see, she’s quite the flexible girl, and the flowers and vines wrapped around her nude body gives Maria a very ‘natural’ look. That put her at a bit of a contrast with the sort of photos I’m equipped to produce, which often use dark backgrounds and harder lights.

Luckily though, I was able to get outside with Maria during one of England’s brief sunny spells and take a few photos! For that reason, there’s not a lot to say about the set-up. I used the sun as the main light (obviously) and brought along a small mirror as a reflector. That’s really about it! I’m quite pleased with the results, although I perhaps should have thought about standing her on something so that I didn’t have to get so low to the ground for some of these shots… I’m still interested in taking more photos in a studio set up, just to see what I can do with her. Perhaps I’ll even make a review while I’m at it!
