I should post more miniatures on pretty much all my social media, but I hate taking pictures so much. :P


All you really need these days is a smartphone, a blue gradient sheet of paper, some light (I often use daylight) and some free space on your desk. I correct white balance and crop pictures in the gallery app. of my phone.


I don't even use a tripod anymore. I make the paper sheet stands with whatever I can find around, put the phone on the desk or on a book on the desk. The most important thing is trying to get a "good enough" light to avoid dark shadows. But most of the job is done by the smartphone.

Most usefull adjustable setting: colour temperature via "White balance" (Android gallery app. on a Samsung Galaxy S7, french version)

That's what I used in 2008, with a digital camera and a tripod, and post processing on a computer. Nowadays I can do better, easier with my phone.
