Re:The Inner Courtyard 2 Years, 4 Months ago  
Which settings do you use on your camera?
This is difficult to answer. I only work in the Manual mode and change the settings for ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed for every image if necessary so I cannot give you an "one setting for everything" answer since it completely depends on how I want an image to look and how the light is and many other factors. I'm working as a photographer for years now and I don't think about what settings to use anymore before a shot but simply change the settings to achieve the desired outcome because I know how it changes my image when I change my settings. But for me trying to explain this process is trying like to explain how to swim or ride a bike. It's actually kind of difficult when you want to put it in words since you do it for years and don't really think about it anymore.
That must be the most unhelpful answer possible and I'm really sorry for that. :/

But If you download the images and right click them and then click on details you can see the settings I used. Maybe this helps. Like for example for this shot I used Shutter Speed of 1/100 an aperture F14 and an ISO of 400.

These settings were used to get mostly everything on the table in a acceptable focus.


For this image on the other hand I changed only the aperture to F/6.3 to get a nice DoF to focus on the Walkers in the background of the image.


I hope this was at least a little bit helpful. :)

That definitely helps. It tells me what I need to play around with to get the picture to come out better. Do you apply a light source? Or is it just the regular lighting in the room?

Another amazing set up Kronos, I always look forward to viewing your photos. Creative lay outs, great accessories and amazing figures. Seeing how you mix and match the different DF sets always gives me ideas.

The roofs really do add a whole new dimension to the layout.

Your campaign must be extremely fun to participate in.

Looking forward to more pics!

Thanks for the tips Kronos! I just went to my wife and said "here is what this guy said to do" and she showed me how to set it to manual, change shutter speed and aperture, and then I played around with lighting and got my pictures to look 1000 times better. I think tonight I may set up a DoE dungeons and play with the camera.

Thank you M4jumbo! :)

Do you apply a light source?
Yes, I work with a Canon Speedlight 430EX II mounted on top of the cam with the flash direct at the ceiling so that the light will bounce back onto the gaming table.

Thanks for the tips Kronos!
You're welcome! I'm always happy to help and I'm looking forward to see your next pictures. :)

Kronos, Thanks for taking the time to provide such a detailed response to my question. I assumed it took several sets, but did not expect the list to be quit so long. Looks like I have a lot of DF collecting ahead of me if I aspire to create setups like yours. :)

In the meantime I look forward to viewing pics from your February and March game sessions and daydreaming about what my own collection will look like one day.

Lovely setup and stunning models.

Incase the big list of sets, puts any new collectors off, you can always do, as manyof us have had to do as build up our collection, just build and work part of the setup at a time. A sketch map is always handy to keep as a reference.

I have heard people say, DF takes too long to setup on the fly.. frankly I think thats rubbish. As GM, many of my setup are on the fly as I am nearly always unable to plan my games down to the minute details.

And a tea or coffee break, mean the players get a moments rest to natter, as I quickly re-arrange the layout to fit the next part.

So you don't need vast amounts to get going. There are lots of other threads on the topic of the best starter sets, so won't go into it here.
