Building a Lightbox (Crow's Blog #3)

Greetings Comrades! At this point it's been a good month or so since I started to paint again, and I was thinking about how some of you take photos of your minis.

As a result I took a look at making a light box and it wasn't too hard to find some examples so I threw myself into it. Ordered some cheap foam board and got to cutting.

Popped some transparent coverings over the open panels.

Et viola! With that done I took started trying to take some photos, but the problem seems to be that the camera doesn't like close ups.

Yet even at a distance I found this was quite a detailed pic of a Cygnar Stormgunner.

Hmmm, maybe it's my eyesight, but definitely not as flattering as when I first finished it - still, these skills are a work in progress.

Anyhew, let me know if you've got any experience to share on this subject. Love to hear some opinions.

Until next time, take it easy.
