Pictures

So just wonder how many pictures you take of each miniature to get one that you like.  Me?  I take about 10-12 before I'm satisfied.

I usually do two with auto flash and two with no flash, then check the camera and repeat if necessary.

Depends on the mini and the day. Once my lights are set up well for one mini, I usually get about 9 keepers for every 10 shots. When I'm running a series (as when I'm doing photography for a competition), it will usually take 5-10 shots to dial in exposure, color, and lighting.

 

This assumes figures of a fairly consistent size. With very large pieces (dioramas, big dragons), I sometimes need to play with the lights and camera setup a bit, so I might lose a few shots to a new setup.

 

This says nothing about my happiness with the paint work, just with how well the photography reveals what's actually there.  ^_^

A lot. Some, like the Keeper who is largely black, I still haven't been able to photograph properly.

how many I take doesn't seem to matter, so I usually just stick with the one or two that is at least not blurry! I've never been truly happy with any of my pictures, which is why I'm inviting a friend over this month who is a real photographer and can take some army pictures for me lol

Usually less than 5 per mini, and that's more fidgeting with the background or getting focus just right if it is a group.  I'm lucky that I get to practice my photography in varying light conditions as part of my job (not daily, but frequently... and still call it IT... go figure), so working with an even light source is kind of nice for a change and makes dialing in white balance and ISO settings pretty quick and easy.
