Take better pictures; a quick photography tip.
« on: 04 December 2023, 11:04:48 »
  Don't take pictures like you're a full scale person photographing a miniature. Take pictures like you're a miniature person photographing a full scale 'mech.

  Most people reflexively take what amounts to an aerial shot with the horizon line either very high or completely up off the frame. While a lot of 'mechs do look good from this angle, it also makes them look small. My brother gave me some advice months ago to shoot 'mechs from underneath and since I incorporated that along with managing linear perspective I've gotten much more unique, visually impressive shots.

 Some 'mechs look better when they're looming up above the camera, others have cockpits and upper torso lines that just look better from above instead of from underneath. Notice that while the Timberwolf shot is cool, you can't really see much of the cockpit.

Love that shot of the red Marauder, but that's the only one I can see full frame.  I'm traveling this week, and only have my netbook with me.  Please have pity on those of us stuck with small screens and limit the size of posted pictures! :)

 LOL if I post them at smaller dimensions I'll immediately have people complaining that they want the full size version.

If you size an image, simply clicking on it will make it full size here. :)
