Mitchel Wu Toy Photography Behind the Scenes: Ant-Man's Jump
Updated: Jun 11, 2021
This was not the image I initially set out to create. In my head I had a fun idea for something completely different, with totally different toys. It wasn't coming together in real life though because of a number of reasons, and after spending quite a bit of time messing around with posing and positioning I abandoned that idea and grabbed Ant-Man instead. But even that went through a couple variations and problem solving until I got to the idea you see here. So in this case, as is so often the case, the most challenging part of creating this image was coming up with the idea. Once I had the idea the setup and execution was comparatively easy. Check out this video, which shows how I set the shot up. And apologies for the bad sound quality - filming in my living room is like filming in an echo chamber. I just ordered a little mic for my iPhone which should improve future videos quite a bit. Improving overall video quality is an ongoing goal.
