photography methods for trans creations?

Postby Crazycrownieguy » Mon Mar 11, 2013 4:06 am

Does anyone have any good suggestions for photographing a model using mostly clear pieces?
thanks

Hmm, while I've never built anything exclusively out of clear pieces, I'd think that a lot of the same techniques used for photographing other Lego MOCs would still apply. For example, using a curved piece of poster board for a backdrop and have it well-lit from multiple angles to eliminate shadows.

Are there any specific problems you're running into with photographing your MOC?

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, but whenever I try to photograph it, it's coming out almost invisible.

Hmm... you're trying to take pictures of something transparent so that it isn't invisible.... :spin:

Maybe you could post on of your pictures here as an example so that we can see what might need to be corrected?
