The second part to my scale model photography series, I have tried out a new platform with this using Adobe spark I hope y’all enjoy the addition and there will be a lot more to come.
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.
- Clean up each with a fine brush to remove any foreign elements
- Set yourself an area with a typical scene idea in mind
- The lower you can get your camera to the subject the better
- 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!
