I find lot of fun shooting pictures of toys, especially Lego bricks.
To light my scenes, I'm using one or more of those elements :
- Natural light
- Canon 430 EX II
- Small torch LEDs torch
Here is a shot I took yesterday with a Canon 430 EX II and basic light bounces (sheets of paper) : http://500px.com/photo/84252271/-by-andy-m?from=user
I like it but I would like to find a result more "realistic" and less plastic and colored. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here is a website of a photographer who is, to my opinion, filled with talent...
- I'm looking for ways to improve my lighting and my overall composition.
- Is it necessary to have expensive equipment to do such stuff ?
- Can those results be obtained only by editing the pictures ?
