There are many skilled and talented bloggers out there that probably do it a hell of a lot better than me. But this method is working for me at the moment, I may tweak and change it at a later date. And I'll hold off from a tutorial until I master the way I do it.
Here are a couple of shots of miniatures I've posted before on the blog, but with the new method:
And for the benefit of people who want to do it themselves or just want to read some great blogs, posts and articles. Here's a handful of links to sites, blogs and articles I found inspirational for this purpose, although there's very likely more I should have highlighted and I apologise for my forgetfulness:
Tears of Isstvan
Rust and the City
Legion of Plastic
Gardens of Hecate
First Point of Ares
This is all completely off of the top of my head, as i said it's likely I've forgotten someone unfortunately.
I just wanted to point these out and say it is not necessarily the method in which any one of them displays their models.
Be that lush photography set-up, useful advice, interesting set pieces, inspiring backdrops, awesome dioramas...
But the dedication, feel and general atmosphere that I was seeking.
I love getting lost in the creation of a characters, miniatures, units and armies. The miniature hobby has been such an amazing portion of my personal and social life and I just wanted to take the time to try and showcase my own miniatures in a more loving and thought out way.
I do not think my photography method is perfect, but I like where it is going now. It is probably always going to be an evolving process.
But thank you to those I've mentioned above for the inspiration (and to those that may have been overlooked too.)
