In A Forest Darkly – One and a Half Heroes

At long last I decided to upgrade my camera equipment from a Smartphone to a proper mirrorless setup. I really liked my old Canon Powershot until it finally gave up. After a proper send off and a few years without a dedicated camera, I first looked again at Canon. Long story short, after many days and reading copious amounts of reviews, I went for Fujifilm instead. The X-T3 is a beast. Uncropped 4k video recording (yes, I hope there will be video tutorials in the future) and a really nice and versatile kit objective make this a nice allrounder. In the future more lenses can add even more versatility.

I still lack a proper tripod and lighting setup, but I wanted to take some scenic test shots of Nienna and Lem.

Camera settings: ISO 160, F-10, 0.63s exposure.

Light: Late afternoon daylight close to a window (white card to bounce light back).

Background: Hand-drawn pastel background.

To mix it up a tad I will post scenic shots of old and new minis between longer articles. The demands of work, toddlers and life in general limit my hobby time, but a few cool shots here and there I can always squeeze in. Enjoy and feel free to comment below if you have praise, suggestions or constructive criticism in terms of scene arrangement, settings etc.

An interesting backstory, to a nicely sculpted miniature. The focus this week is on painting faces and brocade patterns. So come along and listen to some sweet flute tunes.
