ipaintmodels blog where I want to showcase my painting capabilities!
My images were varied in their quality, and although they were grabbing a fair bit of detail, they were very "fuzzy"...
I spent a long while reading and searching for information, including, Miniature Tim, Marsekay's Painting Blog, Iain from Stormy Teacups, GunGrave and last but no means least From The Warp Big List of Really Useful Stuff!!! I found the right spot for my light box, ignored my previous desire for natural light and set the camera on a highly adjustable tripod. I even set the pictures to timer in order to avoid any vibration caused by me pushing the button!
The result is easy to see... the pictures are crisp, clear, detailed... everything you would want or need them to be! I only have to do some minor post-photo editing to brighten up the backgrounds now! So, thank you to all those who have posted about photographing your miniatures!
These pictures are snippets of future posts on my iPaintmodels blog. If you want to see more, then be sure to follow updates from there (I've got these and more ready to post!) For the rest of you, I'll be back at the weekend for the next installment of Working With Foamboard.
If people want to know more about exactly what I do now, or the set up that I use then leave a comment and if there's enough interest I'll expand upon it in a future post.
