Welcome to our How I Got The Shot series! Here we go behind the lens of photographers and videographers around the world to find out how they used their Litra gear to capture an amazing shot, sometimes in the most unexpected situations. Below we hear from Spencer Witt on how he captured these awesome photos that show his versatility as a photographer!
This year was the 40th anniversary of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (which is my favorite Star Wars movie). Some of my favorite characters from Star Wars are the Bounty Hunters. Even though they don’t have much screen time, their designs, costumes, mystery, etc., just made them the coolest characters. I wanted to recreate the scene where Darth Vader meets the bounty hunters and recruits them to find Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon. This is one of my more elaborate set ups using many figures to fill out the scene to recreate it. I love toy photography as an art form, as there are so many styles and things to do with it, whether it be recreating scenes from movies, comic books, or coming up with original ideas to tell new stories.
Ever since I was little, Batman has always been my favorite comic book character. For this shot, I wanted to recreate the iconic opening sequence from Batman the Animated Series (which is also one of the best iterations of Batman). Batman is one of my favorite characters to shoot. I wanted to showcase the iconic brooding over the city with the flowing cape and silhouette.
