I finally got my Foldio2 portable light box that I backed on Kickstarter. I'm extremely happy with the quality of the photos I'm now able to take. The following are two examples. I snapped a pic with my iPhone 5, resized to 1200x900 and added a watermark. There are no other modifications to the pics.
The plan is to photograph a bunch of the models I've painted using the more professional lighting and build a bit of a repertoire. I want to link in some sort of gallery software here. I'll have to figure it out.
