Getting Better with the Camera

So I tried my normal lighting setup with the manual settings on the camera, and I am pretty pleased with the results. You sure do find a lot of errors when you see good photos of your painted minis!

 

Settings on the camera were, in the Manual mode:

  • Manual Focus, set to closest setting
  • Flash off
  • 2-second timed shot
  • ISO 80
  • Custom white balance, set on paper backdrop
  • Aperture: F8.0
  • Shutter Speed: 1/5

In the GIMP, I used the following on each photo:

  • Set Color Levels using Curves to a setting that looked good to me (auto looked too dark) and saved it
  • Cropped
  • Scaled image to 600 pixels wide
  • Flattened the image
  • Saved as an 85% quality JPEG
