Fiction Photography II

I have a small show of pictures of War of War Craft Figures coming up for the month of June. The pictures will be on display at the Edison Community College Library. The Night Elf pictured here is one of two figures that will be featured in the display.

As with all new things I try with photography there are things I learn in the process. Here are some of the High Lights:

While a tripod is handy in the studio, for landscapes etc it is pretty much useless for this type of outdoor photography. I used a combination table top Tripod and Beanbags. The beanbags were the most helpful.

The best lighting is still Early Morning or Late Afternoon. These pictures were taken just over an hour before sunset.

Clean, Clean and Clean some more. These things have a habit of picking up dust and cobwebs that may not be all that apparent until your looking at it blown up on your monitor.

Bean Bags are HEAVY but portable. They fit easy in my bag but added a noticeable amount of weight. Not an issue this time as I did not have far to walk.

It was a fun shoot and I am looking forward to doing some more sessions.
