Miniature Testing Results "Round 1"

This is in no way a perfect shot, but it's a start. I'll need to buy a couple of things before I begin the next round of tests.

What's wrong with this picture?
  • Scale: I was using a 1:24 scale model in this example. (It would take 24 of these little models to equal the length of the full size vehicle.) It was nearly impossible to line up prospective at this scale, 1:12 or 1:6 would make the job much easier. 
  • Focus: I was at f22 and it's still out of focus. The model was right up against the lens. This might have worked better if I was using macro lens. 
More testing is needed. I'll post more results when I finish round two.

Go out and give it a try. Email the results to me at films.october(place the @ here) and I'll post them on the blog.
