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 ?
good light is a must...I'd recommend taking flashlights and taping tissue over the lens, this diffuses the light and prevents the harsh light you sometimes see. If possible take your pictures on a plain background if possible, helps bring out the models details...
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
