A few more -- I like the "daddy's home" ominous shadow ones, I happened to notice it by accident as I passed the setup, and I immediately grabbed the camera. The brightness and the light are a little out of place, but there's something very appropriate about the spooky shadows.....

The "Shadow" in the 3rd Pic of the First Set Would make a Great Post Card... (Just Need to "Fix" the Base being Visable through the Door Way)... The Second Version is Very "Stark" in Comparrison...

L,

I’m loving this sunlight thing. The way that you’re capturing the natural rays of light is brilliant. Are these done in the morning (from the light angle)? Coffee, Smoke, and DF photo session before work…:lol:

I know all about the natural light thing. Doing the Thundarr story was quite interesting in natural illumination. But I wish I would have captured some of the amazing images you've been able to.:cool:

Thanks for the kind words, IO. Yup, these are all playing with natural light -- we've had a string of really clear days here in the northeast US, and the sun comes through into my den at about 8AM with a sharp vivacity, it makes for great pics. At first, I just wanted to get the MK figure backlit so that it would be glowing, but once I started fiddling around I realized I could get some great "biblical" halo effects, that work very well with DoE. Clerics, supernatural forces, etc....


Usually, I use a dim bulb with a light yellow shade to give a kind of yellowish wash to the shots -- it works to bring out detail without making everything appear too bright. But I really like this early morning effects....

Musta been someone else -- very rarely am I in that area, though my dad has a ranch vaguely near there (by Florida standards)

Anyhoo here are some new pics -- more lighting experiments. One is meant to suggest a kind of "magical experiment perhaps gone horribly awry", I like the fact that the room is hit by a nuclear blast while the hallway outside seems fine.

The other is meant to exploit what happens when an empty wine bottle is between the light source and the model -- I tried to make it look like the cleric is holding a wand that's flaring up with an unearthly green light...

Hey I Really like the Green Lighting Effect, Can You Try it again But Place the Cleric Towards the Left Side of the Frame? This Would Really Set the Cleric up as the "Source" of the Light... Great Effect... I Wonder What Could be Done with Some Large Clear Bottles Filled With Various Shades of Food Coloring?...<Chuckle>...

I really liked that green-light picture, so here are some more -- the original was probably the best, but I like the unearthly lighting in general. If possible (i.e. if I can do this again) I'll aim to get some pics of this effect in DoE -- I only realized after it was over that I'd taken these pictures of the fantasy antechamber of my new setup, rather than in the DoE that lies beyond.....


(oh, and there's one pic of some monsters exploring the Den... just coz I liked it)

No MLV, that would be with me.
I am a Sci-Fi City Net customer.
I was first introduced to that store through some of their eBay auctions.
That store was one of the places I was able to get a good number of individual piece boxes at a very good price.
