I've got a 12-inch light tent and a couple of table top daylight stands.
Still learning to take better photos, I'm pretty happy with the result. : )
I used to take photos outdoors on an overcast day or in the shade before noon.
I did her WIP back in August. Comments and/or criticism are welcome.

While I think your previous photo method was more challenging, the new method does show your BEAUTIFULLY painted & based mini Miss off to advantage...the pink is quite striking. VERY WELL DONE on all counts.

I dunno, but if somebody would gift one to me I might have a shot at getting all my minis done. :upside:

Gorgeous! I love the cool colors and the subtle base detail of a few autumn leaves. Where did you get your light tent if I may ask? I need to better my picture taking.

:wub: Thanks Buglips, Fruggs, malefactus, CashWiley, DSModels for your nice comments.


Where did you get your light tent if I may ask? I need to better my picture taking.


* 12-inch light tent, I paid about $15 at Amazon.com
http://www.amazon.co...inch+light+tent
* Table top lighting kit, I paid about $40 also at Amazon.com
http://www.amazon.co...S/ref=pd_cp_p_3
* It is good to read 'Photographing Arts, Crafts & Collectables' by Steve Meltzer.

I own a Canon DSLR, and a portable Nikon digital camera, but I like using iPhone
to take figure photos. Somehow phone camera gets better focus on small objects...
(I'm still learning to level up the world of miniature photography.)

I placed the light tent & the lights on a bookshelf. I'm planning on surrounding the shelf in white.

Yes, Corporea. Jennifer Haley gave them to me for free at a Paint & Take station when I was just starting to paint.
Isn't she nice? :wub: I've kept them for years, I've never ever used them until recently.

Evergrin the Photos look great, and it brings even more of the detials out on the fig. I liked it before in your original post and even more now. I really like that lightbox and may put my plans on making one out of a milk crate on hold and just order that one you posted. Although the one you show gave me another way of approach on making my own.
