Sparrow's 30th Birthday Photoshoot
SparrowMarie posted a topic in Off-Topic RampancyI turned 30 a month ago. I celebrated it by having a game day and dressing up like an elf and going into the woods nearby-ish and do fun photos. We had fun with faerie lights. These are my favorites. Spoiled for possibly large photos. I'll post my (hopefully) public FB album to see all of them when they are up on there.
Miniature photography thread?
Genghis_Sean posted a topic in ShutterbugI recall reading an excellent tutorial a long time ago regarding how best to shoot one's finished minis, but I've been unable to find it. I largely suck at it. I'd like to acquire a background against which to shoot, and I don't know from where I could purchase one. I need to know what kind of lighting is best. I think I read that you need at least two light sources, and I wondered if a certain kind of bulb was best. If anybody has the link to that tutorial, I'd like to go over it. Thanks.
Photo hosting sites
chaoshead posted a topic in ShutterbugNot technically a photography question but it is sort of related, in a round about way. Since photobucket went all stupid where is everyone hosting photos to share on the site now? I know very little about that sort of thing so I have no idea what to look for. This has killed all my posts and pretty much stopped me from being active here and it is driving me nuts. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Adepticon 2016 Photos
Pingo posted a topic in Off-Topic RampancyI was at Adepticon in the Chicago area earlier this month. I took pictures. The whole album (except for Crystal Brush entry photos) is here, and here are some to look at: The legendary Julie Guthrie and Bob Ridolfi! The Reaper Paint 'N' Take: I took one picture of my work.I brought "Black Moon's Bane", the spelljammer, and a group of my painted minis. I also took Crystal Brush photos in a separate file. Photobucket is being a little wonky, but if I can get them straightened out I will post them by tomorrow. There were so many beautifully painted minis!
Hey all! (I heard that groan!) Yes, George is back to pick your collective little grey cells again! I have heard that people are using photo shop and such to change the images of figures they are painting to black and white to improve their high lights. Now, I don't have that capability atm, but I can have the Camera do this, I just need to take extra photos... So I am going to post some B&W photos of current WiPs and ask people to comment on the photos as to where I need to high light / shade. First up, Vourgha the Ogre: Next, the Vulture Demon (Use the images from the WIPS with the same date) As I look at the pictures, it looks to me as if there are no high lights at all! Now I believe this to be untrue, as when I look at the color images, I can see the high lights, and I darn sure know that I painted them! This is what I mean by needing help with using this tool. (Any military ex Photo ops specialists out there?) Also, would it be easier to do if I put the color image side by side, (top & Bottom), or is the black and white image enough? Thanks all! 8) George Mods, I believe that this is the right place for this, but I have been wrong before.... I Can't post photos on the shutter bug area, and the whole discussion is worthless without them...
So I'm thinking of building terrain "fronts" by taking some leftover foamcore, some photos of buildings, and creating some fold-out support ('L-shaped?) so that they will stand up. Has anyone ever tried this? I'm thinking of building fronts because a) more easily stored b) give me lots of flexibility to create mood c) my GNL mats will be used for layouts. d) faster than building full, playable bulidings I'm wondering about sizing. if I do 12 ft per story, that'll fit on an 8x11 paper? I suppose I should compare it to my existing 2 floor MDF stuff, but different eras. I still have no idea yet whether I can find enough photos at sufficient resolution to do this. I took one from google streetview (spoilered), which is also 3 storeys. I suppose I will test something out and report back. In the meantime, please make suggestions, refer to other similar projects/products you're aware of. Thanks.
My Online Photo Catalog
Thrym posted a topic in Off-Topic RampancyIt's 4am. I've just spent the last few hours going through my first of case of miniatures. I've managed to take quick photos if some and add them to my "Miniatures Owned" notebook. http://sprng.me/e9act I have a SKU checklist but visually the Springpad notebooks are an easier and more satisfying system. While inputting them I started thinking about each mini and will be discussing the few I put in within each spring. You'll be able to tell quickky enough that I used to collect mostly Ral Partha. This isn't about showing off my collection. I'll post those directly to Show Off when they are finished. No, this thread is about using a visual note system for cataloging. I also list the minis I'm interested in acquiring or taking notes from. Miniatures of Interest: http://sprng.me/e8n01
More Photos from the ConHere are a couple of photos from ReaperCon, taken between my sessions of Fiasco. I'll try to grab a few more tomorrow and as them to my Flickr stream.
