Photography test
I have recently received advice from Cody G. (thanks a million, Cody!) on how to take better photos, but until now I have not had a white background with enough space for me also to put a stabilizer for my camera. Now that I have a good background (thanks to my dad for the paper), I decided to post a couple of tablescrap guys I had lying around.

Quoting andros tempest I like the designs, nice parts usage. As a test of your photography skills I have to say, good effort but not quite there yet. A couple of the shots are quite dark, might I suggest moving to a location with more natural light, such as in front of an open window. The preview pic is a little out of focus, that could be because of a minute movement when you pressed the shutter. best way to avoid that is to have the camera set on a tripod or propped up on books and using a timer rather than your finger to take the shot. Experiment with the macro options if you're using digital, I have a friend who takes shots of wild plants and she swears by the macro setting for close up work. like I said, I really like those little dudes, might have to try my hand at some ultra-micro chibi bots myself.
Actually, I know why those two photos are dark: I accidentally set my camera on a different mode. As for natural light, I don't have any convenient space near windows or outside.. And yes, I was using a stack of books to support my camera, I have no tripod unfortunately

If your looking for a solution to shadows... use black velvet :D it makes teh background black, and leaves the fig/MOC visible :3 Glad I could help

Quoting Cody G Much better! Maybe another lamp to the left to minimize those shadows.
Hm... I'm not sure I can get another lamp.

Quoting Deep Thought 2.0 These Schmubmub's look great! They are sweet and look easy to make. A tip for photography: If you have problems, with white backgrounds, try Photoshop or Gimp to make them white. It's a lot of work and I wouldn't do it for every creation (to much time to lose), but it looks great! I am making my photos in the room with the biggest windows, because I don't have a special lamp for photolight yet (In sommer this works great, in winter not as good as in summer). In my new creation "Floating Rocks - A first try" http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/300776 I have made the backgrond with Gimp (the light is daylight). Hope this helps and doesn't bore you!
Hey, thanks for the review! Fortunately, I have photoshop so if my background is a problem I can fix it. Thanks again for the advice!
