This is Greg's fault.
Greg tactfully pointed out the less-than-stellar lighting conditions from the last shoot, so I dug around on the web and found a tutorial on lightbox building and lighting. I still have to get some nice cool (ie not-yellow) bulbs for the shop lights, but the abovewas shot in the result. I papered the inside of a box with white shelf paper, leaving a curved surface on the back and minimal seams (they can be photoshopped out anyway). Is it too small to me to do whole armies and tank companies? Yes, but for squads, monsters, etc, it should work okay.
So thanks, Greg, for telling my lighting was shit. Now it's bright as fuck.
As you can see, the Angels of Fire color scheme is a dark palette anyway, but it does light up nicely.
No, I won't retake every damn photo I've done already, even though the OCD section of my brain is screaming at me too.
Happy Father's Day, people.
You too, Greg, if you're a father. ;)
