World Expo Stresa 2014 - Part 2

World Expo Stresa 2014
Painting Buddha Event Coverage - Part 2 - Links!

Yesterday we posted a massive library of 1001+ pictures from Stresa 2014 World Model Expo. If you have missed it, linky linky clicky clicky ;) 

You neeeveeer snaaap alooooone! :D
With over 4000 entries (some say over 5000 with all the judges display cabinets!) and a crowded exhibition hall full of miniature fans it was simply impossible to take pictures of every miniature entered. Having realized that, I didn't even try. 

But as always, Miniature painters are not alone - and that is why (as per usual) I started collecting some links to online galleries of pictures from Stresa 2014 for you. 

If you would like to add your own library to this list, just put the link in the comments below and I will add them to this list ;)

Questions about my camera settings

I got a few questions about my camera settings for the pictures - so if this kind of thing is interesting for you, here the specs:

I love this piece - very impressive!
- Camera EOS 5D Mark III, 
- with EF 100mm Macro lens, 1:2,8
- or sometimes EF 28-105, 1:3,5-4,5 II
- ISO 8000, 
- f=~7-9
- AV 1/40 - 1/100
- Editing, rotating and cropping: Picasa 3

I prefer not to use flash when taking pictures of miniatures as this will often distort the real appearance of a miniature. 

I also usually use a tripod - this time it was all taken from a more-or-less steady hand :D

Alright! That's it for today - we'll have a few more interesting articles about Stresa 2014 World Expo in the next couple of days! 

More soon™ - stay tuned ;)

    Moving house requires knowledge on moving a variety of items, not the least among them being your furniture. Furniture removal is a tough job, but only because it offers physical challenges. If you plan it well enough and then you are careful with the execution, then the physical side of the removals will be the only thing you will have to deal with. Good planning makes for easy furniture moving and here is how to organise your relocation so that you waste the least amount of effort on moving furniture
