A portable photo booth is the easiest way to upgrade your miniature photography. It’s not going to break the bank, and it requires no skills.
Truth of the matter is, I’ve had this thing for ages, but wasn’t really using it.
Fast forward a couple of 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 is a side by side picture 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.
Awesome displays deserves awesome pictures!
Here are some of the specs that I find quite useful for miniature photography:
- Foldable, so you can keep it stowed away and it doesn’t use much space at all
- Comes with 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, this 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.
Unlike to my newer purchase, this photo booth allows me to take full army shots. The smaller model is my go to for the e-bay models and other showcases, but anything more than a single unit is pushing it.
