Looks like I’m done! Well, at least I think I’m done. From here it looks like I added all the sections and elements needed for the site, and from now on it should be only a matter of uploading new content. Good, it’s much easier to maintain than to create.
One of the BIG pluses about 1:43 is that they’re very easy to shoot. I do it in my veranda, where I get a lot of natural light. Than it’s just a matter of setting the backdrop, putting the camera (old Nikon D90) on a tripod, setting for aperture mode and using a remote trigger.
The end results are pretty good IMO, or at least good enough to show a car. I obviously could get better results using a light box, but that would compromise the use of dioramas and backdrops.
And changing pavement and backdrops is a great way to keep the shots interesting. AND for very cheap. So for a totally unprofessional setup I think it works just fine for me .
Slowly the reviews are coming up. I had them published at Scale143, but now with the blog, I’m transferring them here. There are a LOT of reviews (close to 200), so it will take some time to bring them all. But they will come.
