I selected a few of my favourite shots from the rest of the night of macro shooting with my friend Paul. There were 40 keepers in total, so not a bad haul.
Once again, this is really a gallery of Paul's painting, not my photography, but it was a great learning experience!
To give you an idea of the scale of these pieces, here is a Napoleonic infantry unit in 25mm scale, with Paul's hand for reference:
Now here is the full unit so that you can see the detail in the modeling and painting:
Check it out in full size on Flickr to get a better idea of the detail.
From the same scale, a unit of Saracen Cavalry:
I used the blue backdrop to make more of a scene for this shot, but it really, really affects the available light. Speedlite to the rescue!
Finally, two shots of some of his western era miniatures. First, a Saloon and one of it's, um, employees:
Second, a gang of western hoodlums:
Thanks once again to Paul from Saber's Edge for providing me a chance to play with my new toys, and thanks for reading my blog! Comments are always wanted and welcome!
