Ok just a quick post for taking pictures of your mini's. The best way to do it is to set ur mini up infront of a white canvas. Then place one or two lamps pointing directly at the mini on the left and right side of you. And finally you stand between the lamps. This way you will get a good looking mini and won't be hard to see.
use an analog and a polariod to test it. Oh, also, some of you guys may have focus problems. I solve this by putting the mini about halfway across a room and zooming in 12x. It focuses the model wonderfully (not great, but needs want) but blurs the background like no other. still, if it's a white bg, then this may prove a simple solution.
i take pictures of my miniatures by taking a piece of paper and put it in a swooping shape with the use of some kind of support in back of it...this allows the background to be all white without any edges or weird lighting. also if you dont have special lamps...do what i do...do it next to a window...or under intense light... another important part about taking photos of your miniatures is the manual settings on your camera...make sure the lighting is correct and that its in digital macro if the camera offers it

If at all possible use full spectrum lighting or sunlight. If you are in the northern hemisphere the ideal is what is called a 'north light' meaning basically indirect sunlight.

The difference between ignorance and stupidity is that with ignorance one may not know something but is willing to learn, where as stupidity is where one may not know something but is unwilling to learn.
heres a tip if you only have a camera on your mobile phone like me (cell phone for you guys in the states) get yourself a magnifying glass and place it over the lense, this makes your picture a lot more clear for close up pictures which always just end up being blurry when you hold the camera near a figure.
