A SPECIAL DAY

DECEMBER 22 marks a special day! For all you Haikyuu!! Lovers and fans; today is Kageyama Tobio’s Birthday!

So for his birthday and as my first official post of what could be a series; I’ve decided to share with you my growing hobby of collecting and photographing nendoroids. I’ve always been into photography but have fallen off the wagon due to life happening. I’m slowly getting back into it; so for starters I’ve really loved the idea of doing toy photography. I’m not very good with live subjects – considering my career choice it makes sense that I like to take photos of objects, landscapes, and of course architecture. In the future I may be posting more nendoroid photots/stories of Kageyama and the rest of the Karasuno gang and maybe some other photography- we’ll see how it goes since I already have an IG set up for him. And as most of you know, Kageyama is one of my absolute favorite characters! I’d love to hear what you guys think in the comments below! But, without futher ado:

TANJOUBI OMEDETOU KAGEYAMA-KUN!!

Please bear with me as I’m re-learning lighting and posing nendo’s I promise these will get better as time goes on!

(same photo as above, just different lighting effects- blowing out the candles maybe?)

Hinata’s overly excited as usual and so is Noya. Oikawa is hiding behind the tree because obviously he doesn’t really want to show that he’s celebrating with his kouhai. Tsukki is doing what Tsukki does best, make fun of Kageyama in the backround with snarky comments. Kenma is texting Sugawara, Kuro, Bokuto and Akashi to hurry up and join the party (because those nendoroids are coming out fairly soon!!)

I mentioned on twitter that I was a bit stressed out putting out this post on time.  It’s surprising how painstakingly time consuming to set these guys up was. Not just to pose them but to really plan out the props being used (clearly my table is out of scale but I needed one to put his birthday cake on). From decorating the background to making little hats for them to wear, posing them, setting up ideal lighting conditions, taking multiple shots, sifting through these shots, and then photoshopping the photos took a lot of patience and effort and got to be really frustrating at times. But, I’m sure this process will get easier and faster as I continue to plan and do these photoshoots. I absolutely do NOT regret staying up late doing this because I loved every single second it took to get these shots. I had so much fun creating this scene that I can’t wait to continue on with more! I hope you guys enjoyed this post as much as I did creating it.

    Happy Birthday Kageyama! 🙂 Great idea and pictures. Those little hats are so cute. ^_^ I’m actually surprised that Oikawa attended the party. :)) By the way, my Kageyama nendoroid arrives in january. Can’t wait for it, so excited. He will be my first Haikyu!! nendoroid but I do plan to collect all of them because I love the characters.
