It's a long time since I had any newly-painted figures to post here, but many mini-painting blog-owners will tell you that one of the worse things about sharing photos of WIP and finished mins is the actual photography.
So when I went into my favorite charity shop and saw a light box (apparently designed to photograph cupcakes!), it was a quick purchase. It doesn't appear to be branded, but it looks as if you can buy something similar very cheaply (£5-£10).
So, some comparision photos (click to enbiggen). Minis from Crooked Dice, first posted (with their chums) here.
This was photographed in natural light (outside in March 2017 on a wheelie-bin) using a camera.
Figs. 2 & 3
Taken inside on a dark October evening using my phone.
I'm not sure there's a huge difference. One great advantage is that I won't have to wait for natural light of course.
I suppose the conclusion to draw is I need to hone the actual photography skills and that more
playing about experimentation is required.
And, who knows, this might prompt me to do some painting...
