This is the beginning of a series that I've been dying to do.
When I started doing commission painting work I wanted to get better at shooting my minis. I went looking around for whatever I could find in terms of specific, miniature photography tutorials and just couldn't find much. Lots of stuff about building light boxes and such and a few basic tutorials. Nobody was really focused on it. So I've been trying to learn more about photography in general and applying any relevant lessons to improving my mini photos.
Since there wasn't much out there I thought it might be worthwhile to help change that by doing a series of videos on photography as it relate to miniatures. This first video is really just me venting about some of my pet-peeves. You know, when you look at somebody's picture and think "he couldn't take 10 seconds to clean his lens?" I'll probably do another video of tips soon (to be called 5 more tips...) and then dive into some of the meatier topics. Even just trying to give short tips I found myself having trouble not wanting to expound more on some of the topics.
The deeper videos will probably need to wait until it warms up just a bit more.
