And here's my main reason for the weird lighting effects.

I read about how light boxes can be used in place of flash, and I really hated having glare reflecting off of the figures.

I also read at one point that you can build your own cheap light box with minimal cost.

So I figured, why not?

I ended up devoting a good portion of a day to grab the materials and construct it, and then another good day to adjust the lighting and elevation of the figure. What you see before you is the result :).

Wow. It doesn't look that complicated but the effect is evident. I really like the quality of the photos and the backdrop is much better than a desk will all sorts of stuff on it. Almost like professional. Maybe pics turned out to be a lil dark, but her being a mystic girl it suits Velvet quite nicely. I wonder how more cheerful figurines gonna look in there. I even think of trying to build something like that my own. Nowadays I mainly use daylight for my pics.

When you do, try using white background instead of the black I used, keep the box small and not too far from the light, or use a light bulb > 100W, around 150W or even 300W. Or use multiple light sources. The elevation I added to the box was not intended, and the 100W daylight bulb I purchased didn't provide enough lighting for the figure at the bottom of the box.

I would ask you a thing or two when I manage to find time to deal with it if you don't mind. I'm a bit occupied with the upcoming shelf-upgrade (more cool features to come!) at the mo.
