First miniatures - Lady Justice


Recommended Posts

I like how you did the fire effect.

I would recommend that you use more light (not the camera flash) when you take your photos. Inadequate light can cause the pixelation you see in the Lady Justice photo and also "wash out" the subtle paint gradations. I would also recommend a more uniform and "neutral" background so your camera's light sensor doesn't have to work so hard to balance things. No need to get ridiculous a simple empty plastic milk jug works very well and will allow light to filter through as well.

Mini photography is definitely a separate sort of discipline, really wish the old blogs (before they got shut down because of spammers) were still around. Perhaps I will motivate myself to re-write the article I had up there describing my set up and some of the more common issues.
