Photo Booth for Models, Miniatures and Toys

Other than painting clean models, my other weakness is photography! I used to take photos outdoors under the shade of the afternoon sun. Pretty good results as it is mostly sunny here ( Philippines ). I never had any fancy camera though ( as obvious with my gallery photos ) and I have always used my phone cameras for photography ( iphone4s, iphone5 and now iphone6 plus ).

I still use my iphone6 plus for all my photography needs, I did get a couple of photo booth domes to try to level up the quality of my photos a couple of weeks ago. Waiting to shoot under the sun is not the most convenient method of taking photos of models and miniatures, my photo booths are my only solution.

I have the bigger dome roughly the size of a kid's play tent ( 3.5 feet wide ). I use the big dome for Gunpla photography like the 1/48 " Dead Turtle " diorama below. I feel I lack enough lights to effectively use my big dome though... so I also got the small 1 foot dome which I love the most! I rarely do Gunpla these days so I get to use my small dome a lot. I have enough lights to light up the small dome and I am experimenting on different light set-ups as of the moment.

As I've said before, I never liked photography in general when I was growing up... Unlike drawing or painting, I felt you need more equipment to get better OR at least get to be known as a good photographer if you have more equipment ( or lenses )... It was and it is a rich man's craft. Never realized I would enjoy photography with a couple of domes and my phone camera.

Thanks as always for dropping by! Until next post guys! Just enjoy the hobby! :)
