I had to play about with the levels in photoshop with this image, for a rather… silly problem. The lighting on the day was so bright that the logo from my light box was shining through the back of the white background and no matter how I tried the exposure levels in camera wasn’t getting rid of it. Maybe I should have tried using a black background instead due to the conditions, but somehow I didn’t think it would work as well for the models painting – which was done, once again, by my husband.
Here’s another image of the same model without the background looking quite so stark.
I’ve always been impressed by the conversion work on this model – it’s a great model anyway – but I think the different pose make it really stand out. If I recall correctly, it also won a little competition at the local Games Workshop store.
I don’t know if a dark background would work well for this model, but I’d like to give it a try sometime, just to see.

Hi I am also into photography and miniatures. And even though I have had a blog for a few years I haven’t written much until now.
I’m interested to see where you take this site. You’re already posting more regularly than I ever have.
Keep up a nice photos. Love the chapter master one with the background.
What light box do you use?
