Tomb Kings – Sphinx

I had to play about with the levels in photoshop with this image, for a rather… silly problem. The lighting on the day was so bright that the logo from my light box was shining through the back of the white background and no matter how I tried the exposure levels in camera wasn’t getting…

Chaos Warrior

Sometimes, there is that lingering desire to just try and photograph something simple! Today, this Chaos Warrior fitted that description perfectly. Not everything has to be about making up rolling dioramas or funky lighting – although these are things that I would very much like to master and improve on; but keeping simplicity in mind…

Bike Space Marine

I was a little undecided on what to photograph today, so grabbed the nearest model. One of my many unfinished Space Marine bikers! Because they are currently unfinished, I thought I would spare everyone the grey of unsprayed and unpainted plastic and shoot in black and white – this also gave me the chance to…

Chapter Master – Templars of Righteousness

I keep finding myself models that I’ll have ‘to go back’ too and revisit because I’m not happy with how they come out the first time. Again, it was that dreaded, depth of field that I kept getting ‘wrong’ with this model. Maybe I was a little too ambitious too soon with my plans for…

Bury Photographic Society

On the 6th of September I made my first appearance at Bury Photographic Society, so I guess that means I am a bit more serious about growing this whole ‘photography thing’ after all! It was a bit of an eye-opener, that left me with a conflicted mixture of inspired and intimidated; the meeting was a…

Revisiting a Champion

When I originally posted about this particular model, I really struggled to capture what I wanted. I had struggled with the Depth of Field aspect of capturing him. So, when I got my new camera the other day, I was eager to give him another try! I am humble when I say I think I…

An upgrade

I’ve been finding myself rather limited by the fact that my Canon Eos 20D is Fourteen years old. The megapixelage of most smart phones beats the ass out of my poor, ancient DSLR. So today, I took the long walk to the local Camera shop and brought myself a long, overdue upgrade. I wanted a…

Revisiting an old friend

I took this photograph at Warhammer World way back in 2008, he belongs to my Husband and is a Tactical Space Marine Sergeant for the Templars of Righteousness – a Home Brew Chapter that my Husband works for. For some reason I have had a lasting fondness for this particular model; to the point where…

Chapter Master

This is my home-brew Space Marine chapters (Blood Guard) Chapter Master model. And I cheated my hind legs off to get this photograph looking right! This is the overall feel I would like to achieve for my photographs, but I managed to get this looking right thanks to using Photoshop and merging two photographs together…

Space Wolves – Visin

I attempted to revisit one of my Husbands Space Wolf models today. I first took photographs of them and share them in one of my earlier posts and said how I didn’t think they’d worked very well because of the background/set-up I had. So, when I got my light-room I thought I would give them…
