I like the way you do the paint scheme, might have to try something like that myself...

With the photo quality, as far as I can tell, your camera keeps focusing on the background, rather than the marines. What camera are you using? And if it has an auto-focus, make sure you use it. Also, try taking your shots from slightly further away, then crop them in later on.

My tip for taking photo's would be to move the camera back 6inches - then it will focus on your models (i assume you've got the macro mode turned on if you're that close). I quite like the colour you have achieved but would love some clear photo's. Even the mythril with Badab black wash looked darn good. Through the fuzziness i think the bolters need a stronger highlight to break up the metallic blue a bit better.

Keep it up, i look forward to seeing more!

What kind of camera do you have, somebody (myself included) may be able to help you out with that model specifically until you can get a new one. It is kind of a shame when pics come out that blurry after somebody has put time and effort into them.

If you're using a digital camera it would be handy to select the flower icon as that function allows for close up shots. Otherwise taking the photgraphy slightly futher away will help as it's easy enough to crop them later. From what I can see from your shots the figures look nice but I can't make out too much.

I looked into your camera's specs, you have no macro function. My advice is to make sure you are set to "auto" and when you take a picture do not just click all the way down. Most digital cameras have a two stage shutter button. Try pressing down lightly so the button goes in but you don't feel the small click. This will likely bring up some arrangement of boxes on your camera's screen which indicate where it wants to focus. It might also just focus the shot without bringing up the boxes, as some cameras do. Let me know if this helps.

Also, try backing away from the models, it looks like you are still a wee bit to close.

I like it. You're using the metallic armor technique that was posted by Metcalfeden right? it makes for some very nice looking marines. Your pictures are starting to come out better too. :wallbash:

OK! Way way better now that I can see the images clearly. Congrats on the new camera. I like the bits of cover on the bases.

i like the idea of using mainly washes. the armor looks good. i think i may try it.

i would clean those molding lines, they really kill the awesome metalic look. :)

Oh nice! Do you think you coudl maybe delete the fuzzy pics..since theres a HELLOV a lot of them, and you cant see whats what.

I like the new pics. For the highlight the metallic blue, you could possibly just add mythril silver to it, and see if its lighter. test it first.
