It’s been on my mind for a while to capture a dramatic shot of the vintage Boba Fett behind the wheel of his Slave 1. The photo posted earlier this week is exactly that (and it’s one of my recent favorites as well) but it really doesn’t tell the story of how well Boba Fett and his cockpit work together.
Turns out getting that done isn’t so easy.
With the awkward angle of the Boba Fett figure while he’s sitting in the pilot’s seat (and the dark-tinted plastic he’s behind while sitting there) the challenges abound for both composition and lighting. I shot a bunch of different angles but it really came down to this one. It’s not my favorite work but it has something to offer just the same.
Has anyone else seen a good shot of the vintage Fett fully loaded inside his Slave 1 cockpit?
Maybe this should be a submission challenge for anyone inclined to take it on. Lord knows someone out there must have the chops to come up with something better. Hmmm… yes…
