Words by Jesse Feyereisen - A Platypod Pro
Edited by Eryka Bagwell
"It’s finally one of my favorite times of year as we start to transition into Halloween and horror themes! I rarely ever do pop culture crossover stuff, but I thought it would be fun to imagine how Deadpool might react if he went up against a Xenomorph from the classic Alien franchise!"
"Tabletop setup with a 6” Deadpool from S.H.Figuarts and a slightly taller Alien from NECA, propped up on a stand. I have an AD200 in a fairly large softbox and my main key light, and two more AD200s behind the subjects in small strip boxes gelled blue and orange. Sprayed a bit of smoke around the little set to add some atmosphere. With my camera setup on a Platypod stand, I snapped a few pics."
"In post I used Photoshop to cleanup the figures as always, Boris FX Optics to add some embers and additional lighting effects, and finished off in Lightroom with a color grade and final crop(s)!"
