This morning before i put bum to chair and got cracking on my orders i did some field research which is the posh way of saying i was doing research for the kickstarter today!
I have looked at multiple items and two that have particularly caught my attention are these big floor lamps! great and affordable can light substitutes for filming the series!
I have also added two spots to my work space for photography purposes, an example of the image quality improvement can be seen below. This is all stuff i want to cover in the series on kick-starter!
Below you can see how the 3 point lighting settup is ised in TV interviews to create depth and color as well as to bounce light and create and simulate a more interesting space. Light is so powerful! So out with the single tungsten and in with the l.e.d's!
Today i have finished assembly of the spearmen of the Trojan Commission i amd currently working on. They are great and dynamic miniatures but by jove do they hate rank and file! i might have to pre-warn my customer on that one, as it's bloody annoying to balance them even for the picture below!
Otherwise great miniatures with lots of lovely detail and i can't wait to get the basic layers done tonight and tomorrow.
