Tips on Scale model photography made look real


Model photography idea:

As a child growing up model building became an avid hobby of mine, due to the many many hours alone whilst my hard working father spent dawn til dusk on the farm I routinely bought a new model project with my pocket money weekly. Now a lot older, my nephew also has a model collection which I stumbled across just this week.

Seeing he has done a lot of hard work building these new age cast iron beauties, I thought of a great idea! Let’s take these little gems, create a number of quickly cleared areas/scenes and photograph them to instil each in their finest of forms like this example below.

Number 1 of many to come:

For now we have merely this one image to share with you all, but after a quick tidy up of dust and alike there’s is another 10 rare cars including some of the world’s finest like the Lamborghini & Ferrari among this collection we plan to shoot.

Tips so far:

As for tips, they too will grow as we learn from our endeavors, triumphs and failures. What we do know is as follows.

  1. Clean up each with a fine brush to remove any foreign elements
  2. Set yourself an area with a typical scene idea in mind
  3. The lower you can get your camera to the subject the better
  4. Take lots of images, don’t be afraid as the more images on all sorts of heights and angles give you a variety to then filter through to find that 1 perfect capture!
