Melburn – Miniatures in close up

23 Mar

This week I’ve just received a few new lenses in the mail, a canon nifty 50 and a macro lens and it was with great glee that I took to my miniatures for some sweet camera love.  With the lenses I had available I was feeling too removed from the miniatures and wasn’t totally happy with how I was able to frame the shots and control the depth of field.  I was struggling to convey the drama that I wanted to in each shot and I am very happy with how the macro lens enables me to fill the image with mighty close up.  I was able to position my lens a mere 2-3cm from the model and by playing with aperture and shutter speed, plus a bit of trial and error was able to choose what part of the image I wanted to be in focus.  I will be going further in depth with some discussions of how I go about my miniature photography, equipment and sent up as well as image post production.
