Smile Autoscale Studio

Hello all,
This month I started a blog about my Autoscale collection.
I wanted a studio lighting so I use my trusty Nikon D800 with a micro 105 f/2.8, lighting being a sole iphone4s LED.

fantastic photos! have you thought about doing 3d rotational compilations? a new site popped up recently offering this for GI Joes. while a formal studio collection for autoscales is a first, rotational compilations would be a great asset as well.

again, great photography.

Hello and thank you dear moderator ,

Actually I take pics of each model from 8 angles but the lighting is different for each angle (I move my phone in the dark, checking the pic after each exposure, so it's changing all the time) so it would be difficult to make rotoscopic images. For this I would need a static lighting setup and a rotating plate/background.

Btw all angles aren't always beautiful per se, so I have to find a good-looking lighting for each shot. It takes time, typically 30-40 shots by car, but once the shooting is done, I bring the pics in Lightroom to enhance the lighting and select the best pics.
When uploading, I now try to sort the shots in a rotating order to keep a certain coherence.

Optimaforever,

This thread is amazing. The photography alone is great from a macro perspective. But the subject matter of course makes me drool with envy. It is like an online museum seeing these.

Like all the McLaren F1 and the Lan Evo VI...?
