Pics or it didn’t happen!

In my Magnus showcase, I mentioned dusting off the ol’ portable photo studio.  I didn’t go into much details then, saving that sweet content and review for a later time.  Well the time is now, folks!

Truth of the matter is, I’ve had this thing for ages, I just never got around to using it.

I bought it online when I was drunk 5 years ago and was frustrated with my picture taking skills.  Arguably, being drunk didn’t help in those, but that’s a whole other bag.

Fast forward a couple pf weeks back, I’m struggling to take decent quality pictures of the Magnus diorama.  With the weird angles and large areas of the piece, it was a nightmare.

So I dug up the portable photo station from the storage of the store, and lo and behold, decent pictures!  Here are a couple side by side pictures of roughly the same angle with and without the studio:


Now believe me when I say decent pictures.  Photography is not something I really enjoy, so I don’t spend much time on it, or put much effort in learning how to step up my pic game.  This is why I enjoy the portable studio thing so much: it requires practically no effort and it increases the quality of pictures you can take.


I mean goddamn, Harry Potter ain’t got nothin’ on this guy!

Here’s the link for the USA folks ( Canhucks, I got you hooked up with a sweet deal on the canadian amazon, just scroll to the end of this post.  Leave no hoser behind! )

I will probably upload a video soon enough about the exact contents and how I use the portable studio; in the meantime, here’s what I find quite useful:

  • Foldable, so you can keep it stowed away and it doesn’t use much space at all
  • A white and a black backdrop, so you can pick the one that looks best with your minis
  • If you have enough lighting, you can just use the box, no need to setup the extra lights

Like a lot of things on here, the portable doodad combines minimum effort for maximum results, and it makes it a hobby must have if you intend to show off your stuff on the internet.  Phrasing?IMG_3424.jpg
