Okay, we've got one miniature and two different ways of taking its picture. Say cheese! The model in question is a Centurius Clone, painted by the Master Manipulator (every store needs one). He shot pictures for Dakka Dakka using advanced techniques (...can you say 'the right way?' I knew you could!); that is, a proper background and light source. Then you've got my typical point and click...
Which is, by the way, the way I've taken every picture for every model that's ever appeared on this site. Assuming it wasn't one I borrowed (...can you say 'stole,' boys and girls? I knew you could!).
Here are the other pics for you. As always, click on the pic for a close-up.
So obviously these pictures are much better than the first set I showed you... but does that mean you can't take pics without setting up a lightbox or something? The MM(esno) was watching me snap the pictures and made a recommendation, saying I should try it out using the stand and the timer. I also have a macro function, so I could set the camera closer than I'd been doing. Here are the results.
So there you have it, if you were at all interested: a few examples of why it is better to set up a proper station for taking good quality pictures of your miniatures. I'm also lucky, since the Master Manipulator (every store needs one) managed to order a few inexpensive light boxes and he's promised me one. I'm really looking forward to increasing the quality of the stuff I'm showing you.
Well, at least the pictures - you'll still have to put up with my painting.
