Dark Eldar Project: Hellions

Well folks, I just took a crapton of terrible pictures of my first hellions.  They don't really catch the layers of highlights on the skin, or the eyes, or... well... they just aren't very cool since my camera isn't very cool.  But since I'm spending all my blogging time on my 4-game Adepticon Fantasy Championships batrep, these pictures are going to act as filler for content.  I'll put
the 'best' pictures on the top, so you don't have to look at the rest of them if you don't want.

The flash just makes the skin so... one-colored. /sigh

Heh, the backs

lol, it's blurry like crazy.  Don't bother trying to zoom in.  This is as good as it gets.

The hellions look good. I am tempted to buy some.
I used to get really frustrated with taking photos as well. Even with plenty of sleep and no caffeine, I got blurry photos. I found a tripod or something to rest the camera on solved all the blurriness problems. Then I photoshop them to bring the shadows down, and lighten 'em up a bit. Photography is a skill that has to be learned just like painting.

Hm, that's actually really interesting (and helpful!) I'll try out putting the camera on something for a start. As for photoshop... I'll look into it.

Thanks for the tips though, I really appreciate it :)

Try taking pictures from about a foot away with two light sources, one on either side. Then do all of your zooming with photo editing software instead of your hand. Do you have a macro setting on your camera?

Does your camera have macro? It helps a ton! Macro is for close up shots. I have a bright lamp right over the model against a white wall, lets you see the model really good.
