As I always say, I am not a professional photographer or for that matter a painter. In actual fact, I look for quick easy methods to get satisfactory results. Today I will take you through my resin furniture collection from Frontline Miniatures and Copplestone Castings. I will also mention some photography tips I picked up.
The number one aim of scenery is to deflect a sloppy paint job and to distract the vewer from unfortunate scratches on your figures. By equal measure, props add enchantment to your photos.
You have probably noticed that I incorporate many resin doors in my photos. The reason is because they give a sense of enormity. What appears to be an everlasting complex is in reality a 20cmx15cm diaroma.
There is a sense of trepidation:will the hero escape from the bad guy down the long corrdors?
An enemy agent?
Computers with top secret data?
Let's move to the guest quarters. When looking for scenery I try to look for a homely feel. By having familiar objects, the pictures appear charming. Here the hotel provides a bed, study desk and a grandfather clock.
Other props reveal much about a villian such to what degree they are cultured and the extent of their hobbies.
Notice the subtle differences.
