You’ve spent all this time to build and paint your mini, but if you want the rest of the online community to see your great work, don’t use the excuse of a poor camera anymore. Instead, check out these tutorials on photography for miniatures and show your work in the best possible light.
While I don’t have many tutorials on photography for miniatures yet, it is something that is on my short list to work on. In the meantime, I hope the tutorials on post processing help and check out the further reading at the bottom for posts by other hobby bloggers.
Even if you have a lightbox, a great camera, and perfect lighting, doing a bit of post processing can help highlight the best of your miniature. Here I show how to do basic photo editing using the free tool GIMP.
To take it to the next level, I even recorded a video showing how I use GIMP to do more advanced photo editing.
In terms of light boxes, the Foldio 2 is super handy for photographing miniatures. It folds down flat, includes a super bright LED light, and multiple backgrounds to take pictures of your minis.
