As a continuation of the post I made last week, I'd like to look at past images I've taken of models and what they look like now with proper lighting and no image editing beyond cropping the image.
Lets start with the Gaulrach model I've been using as Fateweaver-
This is the old image I had been using for quite a while now. There seems to be plenty of lighting, but the colors seem off, don't they? The blues appear to be glowing, the purples unnatural, and the plane is obviously apparent by the background line.
These two I took a couple days ago with the new camera and lighting The lighting seems more natural, not overly filtered. The blues no longer look like they glow and the contrast isn't as obviously tweaked as it was in the original image.
This image would look fairly well if it wasn't for the poor lighting. As you can tell, there is more light coming from the left side of the image, leaving the area underneath looking overly dark
In the new images, the lighting is more even, using lighting from above, the front left, and front right areas to evenly distribute the light upon the model. Also, the flash was used in this image, filtered through multiple layers of tissue paper to get just the right effect.
Overall, I'm much happier with the new images. They are cleaner and display the models as they appear without requiring a lot of touch up in paint programs.
Instead of babbling on, I'll just share a couple more photos I took and leave it at that. Till next time, happy gaming!
