does anybody have any tips on taking pics of figures ?, i wanted to post some of my pictures but just cant get my camera to focus, no matter what i do the picture is blury, does anybody have any advice or could tell me where im going wrong ?
sounds like you are getting too close for the camera -- have you looked to see if you are in macro mode? Most digital cameras have this mode (usually on the dail its shown by a flower).
hmmm, ill have to try this out, thanks a lot for your help =]
The above are good tips. Also, here is a link to a great guide by our very own scary eyeball, minus_t
That guide should set you in good stead. A few tips from me (all likely in the above guide) are not to put the camera too close to the model, always photograph onto a white background, have a good stable structure to rest the camera on (preferably a tripod) and have at least one good light source behind the camera.
Read the guides, have a practice ans see what you can come up with.
Good luck matey
(also, have a stab with the search function on LO - many an old post about this has come up, each with useful tidbits of info).
You can also get camera wabble when using macro mode - a pain to get round. If you don't have a tripod (and ifyou want one tescos sell one for £10) then try setting the camera on the table top - so that it is still - also if your camera has a multi shot or timed shot feature try using these
This is what I use:
Nikon Coolpix S50C
Macro Mode (very important)
3 shop lamps with 100W bulbs with tissue paper covering
White paper for a background
Light placement is one overhead and two to each side slightly front
This is typically what the pictures look like after being corrected in photoshop using the automatic level, automatic color, and automatic contrast:
