Toys in fog
I have invited a friend who likes to paint miniatures for wargames to come over and see if we could take some cool pictures. In anticipation of his visit I thought I’d give it a go to iron out the worst problems in the method beforehand. Since a game auction at a convention a couple of years back I had some MechWarrior toys sitting in a plastic bag, so I took a couple of those, draped a bed sheet over some boxes by the window and assembled the new Calumet large format camera again.
In the picture above I shine a flashlight into the scene from behind to make a sort of cave-entrance like effect in the picture.
In the picture below I waved a grey sheet around in the scene during the 30 second exposure to create a mist/smoke like effect.
Below is a small detail from one picture out of the series. My friend’s miniatures have more fine details and are much nicer painted. I think we will be able to make some very cool images.
