Behind The Build: Creating Cosmic Toy Photography


Hasbro Digital Visual Designer, Scott, takes us on a journey behind the scenes of his photoshoot and shows us how he makes these epic scenes come to life using the new Marvel Legends Cosmic Ghost Rider figure.


Beginning with simple lighting effects, Scott shares some tips and tricks that he uses to achieve the cosmic results you see. He explains how fans can easily create their own scenes from their home using even simple lighting sources.


“You can use a smart phone because the cameras on those are awesome. We use big panel lights, small L.E.D. cubes, but you can buy really cheap lights anywhere.”

The trick to making a cosmically enticing composite is taking many photos, each illuminated to the max, and layering those digital images into the perfect storm of pixels.


“Now it’s your turn. We can’t wait to see what you create!”
