Photographing in the sun

Having finished painting my Typhon Heavy Siege Tank I took some photographs of the model on my desert terrain.

My desert terrain is too big for my lightbox, so I took it outside into the sun.

It was very bright and sunny, so much so, there were some really harsh and hard shadows. 

In order to diffuse the harsh light, I would have used some kind of photographic reflector, but I don’t have one. What I did use was a large piece of white card.

This helps to reflect the sunlight back and reduced the depth and harshness of the shadows.

I am thinking about getting though a bigger lightbox for taking more photographs of dioramas and scenic settings.
