Photo Two - Again the plain white background and direct sunlight, but this time with the Macro setting on the digital camera..
Photo Three - Indirect sunlight through a diffuser, some clear packing film held in place with masking tape. (I told you it was Heath Robinson!)
Photo Four - As above but with the Macro setting.
Photo Five - Artificial light this time, a single 60watt standard bulb lit from above.
Photo Six - Artificial light but with the Macro setting.
Interesting experiments. At this moment I am going with the diffused lighting as it has less stark shadows. However what am I going to do when the winter comes and good sunlight is in short supply?
For the past three/four years I have been using a pale blue background (see earlier posts) but I have been told that if I want to proceed with a PDF book on building wargame terrain, I will need A - a better camera (unlikely at this moment as funds are tight) and B - a light box.
I'll keep you informed of developments.
