Basking in the Afternoon Sun

I don't really have anything of interest to write about, but thought I'd chuck up a couple of test pics taken on the test module with a couple of bits of rolling stock. I seriously need to get some kind of backdrop printed off for these makeshift pics until the whole thing is finished.

The combination of the two different styles of fluro globes in the old floor lamp I use when lighting the module in low light seem to give a bit of a golden glow not unlike the effect you get with the setting sun, which is quite a nice effect I think.

Somewhere down the track a decent camera will have to appear, as I'm not happy with my sub standard image quality compared to some of the other bloggers!

HI Darren,

Forget the backdrop, take it outside and use natural light (this makes for great shadows, and gives a better backdrop then you will ever create. Michael Paul smith flicker site explains better.

I will do this with Bowen Creek one day.
