More About This Title Photographing Models and Miniatures


The modern digital camera has made model and miniature photography a breeze, even with very simple and inexpensive cameras. You can take basic record photographs for selling online, keeping track of a collection, or insurance; or photograph complete miniature worlds created with simple household items, toys, and model railway accessories. An entire home studio can be set up on a kitchen table, and packed away in a cupboard. All that is required is a camera, a mini tripod to keep it steady, a few simple accessories adapted from items you already have around the house, and some suitable props. The technical part of photography can be left to the camera, while you concentrate on the creative—and fun—side of things.
