Photo Equipment and Picture taking techniques

Postby SSwaleedAlpha2 » Sun Oct 21, 2012 2:17 pm

Hey, everyone.
I need some advice from all you photographers out there. I don't know if I can actually post this on this forum category but it does sort of pertain(did I spell that right) to Action figures. I just made my second custom and posted it on figurerealm and the pic quality is terrible but it's the only camera I had at the time. So could you guys give me some advice on Cheap decent cameras and cloak Backdrops, if that's even what they're called, and photo tents and other things you guys think could help out. Also if you guys know any good techniques. THANKS, I always appreciate everyones help.

I've seen people take great pics with cellphones. Lighting is key.

Not really. I find my camera responds differently to different lights(led, incandescent, etc.) If you have a camera to use I suggest experimentation. You can pick up cheap lights at dollar stores and wal-mart. You could also build a photo tent/booth.
