View Full Version : Question on Photography of Prop

9589959095919592I'm updating my website with my newest creations and wasn't sure which pic looked better for it. The way my site is set up, I can only post one photo per product. I photographed my dollie here in dim lighting, but I loved the washed out blueish tint it gave her, but not sure just how washed out I should take it. Does she look too blue (she's white, but the aging photography software and the dim lighting outside blued her out, but you can see her big blue eyes better). Whaddya all think? The first shot is the aging software, the middle shot is the original. I included closeups in some other shades too that I can do too. HELP!! :)

#4 looks the creepiest (assuming that's what your going for), however if your trying to show off your prop then #3 may be your winner.

Best of luck!

You need to post the picture of the prop in full light. Just like you go to the trade show and they have most props in full light, you need to do the same. The dark hides flaws, and details. Which will either help or hurt you. The pictures are great, but I want to see what I am getting, not what it COULD look like.

Yeah Nightmare that's what I was afraid of with the dim lighting. I'll retake some more whenever we get a glimpse of nonrainy weather and see what I come up with. IF it ever stops raining, LOL! :)

Thanks Phil too. :)

I highly recommend getting a low light lens for your camera. I dont know what your using but my wife has a sony A300 and a low light lens it takes beautiful pictures of props and sets. Its terrible for action but great for anything still.
