One of the things that makes preparing pictures for this blog easier is if the subject has a simple plain background.
Take this picture as an example;-
This is an example of what we call a “model documentation” type picture, where the aim is to show the model and it’s details. Note how a plain background does just this.
Note also the dust spots shown by the yellow arrows – which only appear when the DSLR that took this picture is used in aperture priority mode and takes pictures at f/32.
And here’s a picture showing the wider view of how that was achieved;-
Note that the background and base to the model are clean sheets of white paper, as used by the computer printer. The background sheet is held in position by Scotch tape and a cardboard box (on edge). The base sheet is held in place by the weight of the model, supported by a familiar box from an SRCS kit, and drapes down to the table, giving a soft rolled over edge.
The lighting is simple summer sunlight, as shown by the garden behind.
