With respect to lighting and photography of your DF pieces, think about what you intend to do with the pics. (I know Tom's got a thing about bright lighting on DF pieces) ;-}P~

Eternally,

I did not considering that under this angle, sorry

I'm going to try and take some pictures with what you guys recommend. But how do I post them so you guys can tell me what I'm doing wrong? Should I put them up as an attachment?

SovS,

You should be able to add it as an attachment at the bottom of the "Reply" when you post your reply. Save your image as a .jpg at 96 or 72 dpi so the file size isn't enormous.

I'll try get some up this weekend after the Game con. Btw can you email me some links of your cubes if you have any? I'm thinking of getting one but I want to see some more pics.

Also what figures do you usually put in the cube? Skelies or like half digested ones that would be cool.

Always use a tripod for your camera. There are cheap $10 tripods that stand about 6" tall that are perfect for this. Always use the timer if you have one. The trick here is not to be touching the camera at all when the picture is snapped. Any movement at all will tend to blur the image.

For lighting I would suggest 3 lights. Take your brighest light and postion it as if it were the sun. This will be your main light and the one where you want the highlights on your subject to be the brightest. 2nd light will be about 90 degrees off to the other side of the main and placed at a lower angle of attack. This is your front fill light and will fill in the shadows created by your main light. 3rd light should be placed behind and above the subject to help cancel out the shadows cast by your front lights.

Actually, the link to CMoN you provided in your initial post is a very good resource for photographing minis. Just look to the righthand side and click on the Articles link. Lots of help and ideas there.

Hope this helps.
