    I knew I could count on you to help Sam.
    But...one of the others in this thread grabbed about half of them.

    Your goal for 2014 should be to shave that ferret off your face.

    Since you were here I have gone from a goatee to a full beard now.
    I was thinking the more hidden the better.
    Looking more and more like my avatar as time goes by.

    A little more practice with the camera today.
    This is closer lights and no flash. The colors look accurate but the figure is diminished a bit.



    I am about ready to give up on the idea of group photos though.

    What is your reflecting surface? That is, if you were to lay a mirror atop the blocks, what would be in the reflection of the mirror when looking through the camera?

    I did a quick and dirty light box but it seemed to wash out the figure in Koa and darker woods.
    Looks like a directional light source is going to work out best for the figured stuff.
    I am still doing a bit of experimenting with the camera, backgrounds and light sources.
    Things are looking a little better but nothing dramatic.

    I wouldn't use the onboard flash. It'll wash out everything. If you don't have a tripod you should get one. With a tripod you can have almost no light and still take pictures. I usually use aperture mode and have the camera pick out the rest of the settings. If you have a macro mode on your camera, you should probably use it and have your aperture set to 8. This is when you need a tripod since the shutter speed would be too slow for you to hand hold and then everything would be blurry. You can also get a white balance card to setup your white balance more easily with your light source. You don't need a light box but you should try to diffuse your light source so that it wouldn't look harsh/washed out. Moving your light source or having multiple light sources can bring out the figures you're looking for.
