iPhone 5S Model Photography - LUNX 80026
As part of the Y&MV Thrall-Door boxcar project I created a detail page for the Walthers model of car LUNX 80026. Though this car will be repainted and it is unlikely that a car painted in this attractive Lignum scheme will operate across the Meridian Speedway, this car comes with exquisite markings that can serve as an exceptional reference for the creation and placement of decals on the Y&MV cars.
For model photography I have leaned heavily on the camera that comes standard in my iPhone versus the more heavyweight Canon cameras in my photography arsenal. For individual roster shots and even closeups up-to a half a car in size, the regular view of the iPhone camera is just fine.
Today's HO scale models have incredible detail at the fine-print level, however. These details can be difficult to capture with the depth-of-field limitations of many cameras. To capture these small markings, I actually moved the iPhone farther away from the model and then zoomed in on the fine print to capture the image. Now I can easily read this microscopic writing on my computer screen. To read all of this writing on the car would require a magnifying glass and much patience.
