No, this is not a post about another project I´ve just begun. There is still enough to do on my prussian hussars and also on my hospitalian knights.
This post is concerning about a wooden box I´ve built for setting my minis in scene before photographing them. Why a box? - I hope that it will give more light for the pictures for they are often too dark or too shady.
So yesterday I bought me some boards and a light to get started.
Here is the result. In my opinion the light is not good enough at the moment and I consider if it would become better if I just would add two more little LED´s in the two corners of the box.
The box is not finalized yet. The background is missing for I want to have a sky with some clouds there. I have to search for a poster or something like that but until now I haven´t found a fitting kind.
Also the ground has to be prepared with sanding and some paint.
Here are some pictures of a first setting. It shows some samurai with two 4-Ground-houses I bought on TACTICA in Hamburg I think two years ago.
|A bargain for I got these seven nicely painted figures for seven Euros at the show.|
|This picture is made without the light of the box but by using the flash of my camera.|
|Also only by using the flash of the camera.|
|And a third try without the light of the box.|
|Using the light of the box.|
|The Buddha and the tree are also from TACTICA.|
