Nice Paper Toys

The Papertoy Network!



taking photos is kinda important in the paper toy process. it showcases your model and needs to make people wanna have it. it shows off the design. ive started this group so people can join to share tips on how to take some quality photos.

i have a degree in photography so it's easy for me to geek out on this topic. right now though i'm keeping it simple, having jettisoned my studio gear prior to a cross-country move. my sweep is actually some butcher paper, lit with one light and a few bounce cards. tri-pod is key, wide open aperature for that shallow depth of field i love.

I've just cleared my desk of all the crap that has accumulated since i moved house and now i can finally use my z740 with a tripod and lights (geekgasm!) expect some better photos from me soon.

A little tip for ghetto whiteout backgrounds is to place the model on the bottom of the bath. Usually bathrooms are incredibly bright places (so you get disgusted by the dirt and scurb and scrub until your down to your last layer of skin i suppose) so it comes out half decent ^^

Anyone have preferences on ISO settings and lighting? Currently using a FUJI 'bridge' camera on Aperture or Shutter priority, with lamps placed to create nicer shadows... I'm loving what Marshall's doing with his toys... more thought about layout and settings!

I had already had the opportunity to see these fantastic creations; also I am a lover of the photo pinhole, I have practically built macchinette with every thing, inside a tomato, inside a box of matches, I have also done a water-playpen in tetrapack of it to go under the water ;-{D
