I'll have to get a grip of this photography lark
I'm currently working through some AWI/FIW Indians for a chap and they're coming along well enough; a mix of Perry and Conquest figures and all pretty nice. In some instances they're sold as particular tribes, but these are deliberately anonymous, although a couple of the Perry characters will have to be done 'as is', so Joseph Brant is going to be Joseph Brant and not Dangling Snot or whoever.
I thought I'd take a couple of shots of the finished ones (obviously!), to send to the guy who owns them rather than for the blog, but I think the outcome is pretty poor. I never seem to get the light right although I've mastered the 'slightly out of focus' look with no trouble. I suspect daylight just isn't for me and I ought to use lamps, but I've tried this before with equally questionable results. Maybe I'm just a pretty poor photographer and that's that. Anyway, hints and tips would be appreciated.
