    I just finished building this model.. I'm mostly happy with the pics, so I thought i'd share them here. Kind of a magazine look.

    I used my d70, sb600 pointed at the ceiling, white paper for bounce card kinda to the model's front right. Lit the background with a regular ol' lamp. I don't know much about flash photography, i've always just set up lamps and used slow shutter speeds, so any tips are welcome.

    I like the photos, the lighting feels soft and nicely balanced, and the colours have a natural feel about them. Really great job. :)

    A very intricate model too, was it hand painted ??

    I'd love to see the shots on a black (or dark grey) background too. I just feel these type of shots would lend themself to darker backgrounds.

    Thanks. It was mostly handpainted. I airbrushed the face and hair, that's about it.

    I normally photograph my models on darker backgrounds. I just thought i'd try something new.
