I started this in a WIP and have finally finished my first background for taking pictures. This one is made with fairly lightweight watercolor paper. I taped it down tight, primed with gesso, and built up from light to dark layers (all cheap craft paints). The concept was for the whole thing to appear nebulous, as a dark cloud with obscured lighter flashes. I think it turned out pretty close to my vision. The half-painted creatures are just my first test shot with the background. My phone camera did occasionally try to focus on the background, so on the next attempt (some kind of brighter theme) I will try to soften the edges (paint started to dapple on the blacks and grays). What do you think?

For those curious, the bug is primed in Reaper brush on primer, black, and it's carapace has two coats of Golden's Interference (purple-green) paint. Boxy is clean Bones, primed with Brown Liner with Old West Rose fleshy bits. They'll get their own WIP soon.
A bit bored at the office, so...
Shall we take a little hike?
you're following a trail when it suddenly enters a dark and forboding forest. Do you enter?
Feel free to use that in a game, but yeah, I take payment in candy...
Once upon a time...
I grew up in this fjord...
Lets head up in the mountains. Frankly, I'm not too certain where these next pictures were taken.
Now, the next one...
This is taken not far from where I live now. About 3Km in distancee and 5hours hike... (Healthier people can do it in 3 hours, maybe)
A local beach. Also a nature preserve, so no motorized access.
A bit of a view among the trees...
A couple of pictures from an early autumn hike last year, up to a mountain lake.
Unpacked(read; just dumped my gear in the shelter. )
Yes, it's possible to sleep on the benches, if you bring a sleeping bag and some sort of padding. Which is lucky because there's no flat space large enough to pitch a tent.
There's supposed to be decent sized trout in the lake... Unfortunately, my GOOD rod was broken...
On my way back down the next morning, I stopped to take a photo or two, and also one of my big camera(Ondurama 17x6)
And finally, another one where I'm not really certain where it's from.
That's all for now...
Don't know what happened to Doug's Miniature Photography 101 thread that was in here, but I feel this is a very valid thing to have in this area.
Found this today while surfing the web and thought it'd be very useful for a lot of us who try to take pics of our figures: TUTORIAL: BEGINNERS GUIDE TO MINIATURE PHOTOGRAPHY
