What’s the best thing for a figure photographer? To have his or her photos featured online? Not bad, but I’d say to have his or her photos featured in a book or on posters is probably better! Seeing your creations in a physical form is a nice change from the flat screens that we usually see figure photos on.
So that’s what Sakura Doujin wanted to do and made real for me and a few other fellow figure photographers. They called the project Snap Fig and was a project funded by backers who wanted the book and maybe the extra posters and prints. They asked figure photographers to send in a few different photoshoots or scenes, a collection of photos taken with the same figure and the same stage/location, and with it send in some EXIF information from the photos to be shown next to the photos. The also asked for behind-the-scenes photos of the photoshoot.
