Photography tips help/ (one star ratings)(⌯˃̶᷄ ﹏ ˂̶᷄Photography tips help/ (one star ratings)(⌯˃̶᷄ ﹏ ˂̶᷄

kaityleekaitylee22 giorno/i faDiary
I have been practicing shooting pictures of my anime figures for a few months and upload them to this site and the links from this site to other sites I am apart of as a journal to see how much I improve over the years. I know I am not very good now, but I plan on taking classes to start to improve and learn about lighting and creating a story with pictures ^^
However, I keep getting one star ratings on my photos on this site and this makes a little self conscious >< . I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion on the quality of a photo, and that is what makes everyone so diverse with different opinions and views, but I need some advice.
How can I make my photos better to prevent one star ratings and keep my photos looking better?
Any basic photography tips would be super helpful!
I made a post about this a while ago but any new answers will be helpful and and tips would be appreciated!

Lurker here, I just give everyone a 5 star on photos or not leave any at all just cuz I feel like that's just the thing to do. If people give one star I feel like thats just plain dirty. (Also I notice a lot of the same people giving other photos one star ratings so maybe they're just salty at the world I dont know)
But I think you'll get better as time goes by so keep your head up

Edit: just a fast search and I found this if helpful at all expertphotograp...

Tenma (16 giorno/i fa) #60571608I just looked at your pictures and they look fine to me, and with the useful tips and advices there were given here im sure they will become even better.
Unfortunately there will always be down voters or users who like to post pictures everywhere with a link to MFC so that they can get POTD.
Just keep uploading your pictures

Thanks:) I'll definitely keep taking pictures to keep improving

It's also possible that some of the voters may not understand how the voting numbers work. I've observed a few cases where someone added a like to an item and even posted positive comments, but rated the item 1 star. They might be confused and think that 1-star = 1st place while more stars would be lower/worse positions, instead of how it actually works here at MFC where more stars = better.

kaitylee (21 giorno/i fa) #60148361I find this super helpful and insightful, I really appreciate this!! ♡ I will take all of this into consideration when taking future photos >u<
Thank you:)


That's great! :D No worries, another thing you can do to to help is look up photo hacks on YouTube, there are loads of neat things you can do and use to change the feel of your pic or make it unique. ;) Such as this one I did a while back i used a CD to reflect the figure, giving it a glamour shot look. :)

I also use a mirror sometimes as well so it reflects the screen which can give you a really cool effect like this:

A shot I did with a Nendo playset which I then used Meitu to edit to make it more Anime like:

One more to share and this one I used tinfoil as a background and added in the extra lights and tinsel etc for a Christmas touch:

Anyway glad I could help and as I said I look forward to seeing your future pics! :D

Your photos aren't bad, you only have to care about lighting and post editing would help you a lot. Just search on Google or Youtube for tutorials.

I have a troll who's always giving me one star rating from my latest pics and this user hasn't posted photos, so they do it just for fun because they're jealous or are assholes.

MY advice...is ignore the one star votes. I'm confident they are not photography smart individuals dishing out one stars, so why care about their votes? I've got them on my pics as I'm sure everyone who uploads even fairly regularly has. Some people just ignored the advice their mom taught them as kids, if you don't have something nice to say shut the @!#$ up. :D Because some people are just rude.

I think your pics are just fine and have a lot of potential. As some others have said the lighting can be tweaked a bit or fine tuned in some editing software after the fact, but they are good composition so I think with just more practice you'll get better, but regardless they are not one star. Don't let critics who likely know jack about photography get to you...just enjoy what you do and maybe watch a few youtube videos on lighting and start tweaking until you are satisfied! If it matters, my two cents is that you are doing well, so kudos! :D

kaitylee (21 giorno/i fa) #60148744They’re not bootlegs. I got them from SolarisJapan:)

That's good to know! I'm not an expert in identifying bootlegs; I just thought they looked a little odd and based that on a quick comparison to the official pictures. In that case I have to agree that you need better lighting. I think not having the features fully lit contributed to them looking different.

EmmBee (21 giorno/i fa) #60148741Those Super Sonico figures look like bootlegs. You could have the best, most well composed professional shot, and people will give you one star for that reason alone. We all know bootlegs exist, but a large part of the community here doesn't support buying them, so it stands to reason pictures of them aren't popular either (except in an educational "how to tell a bootleg from legit" capacity).

I highly doubt people are trolling your MFC images. Objectively speaking, the setups are decent. Nicely set up dioramas and figure placement. But, your lighting sucks. Every picture looks matted, dull, bland. I think if you work on setting up a focal point from a light source, it would make the images cleaner and clearer, and make certain areas and objects pop out better.
