I got some emails requests on how to photograph such a tiny models.
I could say the technique is all in the lights, but the camera settings has a lot to do with the results also.
I got some ideas from the following sites.
Light box / light tent
Basically I've chosen a “no flash” setting with the macro option enable on my Canon A95, the macro setting is usually represented by a tulip logo.
Without the direct reflection of lights, with the help of the paper rolls over the neon’s, you have a crisper image quality. But you must use a steady hand or a tripod for such a low light setting.
So basically it is done with the following points only.
- Paper light filtering (just 2 sheets of paper rolled)
- No flash
- Macro setting
- No hands shaking allowed.
