Again someone said that he had to make a photo box and I said no you don't.
I have used my work bench table top for my studio. I buy the white and other color's of paper which is flexible and pin it to my upright wooden shelf bracket. I roll the paper down and tape it to my work table. I use 2 "DAYLIGHT" 75/100 WATT COMPACT FLUORESCENT BULBS" in my two swival lamps. The model is placed in the center of the paper and I take its' photo. I can easily turn the model in any direction, including upside down. Go for it as it's "experimental time" again. RJW.
THANKS CHARLIE...oops, caps on. You should have seen the models that I made on Friday nights in 1977 and were up on my wall shelf by Saturday afternoon. I think I have come a long way since then. I got help from a couple of experience models.
I rented a home from the bank so I could go anywhere in it and spray paint models, but I choose the garage due to the orders from my boss who I called honey, darling and wife. I would agree with the guy who lives in an apartment. If you live on the ground floor, just go out side.
One person ask why I quit modeling. It is due to getting "shaky hands" from the first stages of "Parkinson's" disease. In 2000 the hands began to tremble and by 2008 they were shaking a little bit.
In 2014 they were shaking left, right, up and down at least 1/4"/7mm in all directions. I struggled for two years building models, then said to myself:
It's time to quit Rodney!
I bought a commercial light box for under $100 and use it when I photograph the aircraft once I’m in the final wings on stages. For detail shots I use a similar set up to yours. I have three colours of poster paper: sky blue is the best and most used followed by black and then grey
I have light blue and black paper too!
Same method here Rodney
The old story is: If it works for you, that's all it counts if you like the end results!
Yep, same-o same-o.
Fantastic series, almost a "masterclass". As my workshop/office is not too big, this is the best photo booth option for me. Thanks for posting, Rodney!
