Low light photography

At this present moment I’m researching low lighting, so I thought that I would post a bunch of photographs that I found interesting.

Lighting the scene

I haven’t actually thought about how I will deal with the lighting the doll house so that it is bright enough to take photographs. I can’t use the light bulbs in my home because it might just look like the sun shining down on in the miniature model (if this makes sense) or leave heavy shadows.

I might just use small torches or natural light, depending on what time of day I am taking the photographs.

More on this when I have worked it out a bit more. ūüėÄ

Heres a clip about the Wallace and Gromit film. If you look closely you can see the type of lighting they use.

Yes…I won the bid!

I brought this 3 Piece suite, which has familiarities to my nan’s set. I had to wait for about 5 days but at last it’s over. I always wait until that last 30 seconds to bid just incase someone else is bidding, its so they don’ get a chance to bid again. Luckily this time there was only one other person, so it was an easy bid. I can never understand why people bid 2 days before, I just “watch” that particular item that I am interested in. Does anyone else do this?

I’m expecting the set to be delivered on Tuesday so I have to make sure I’m at home. I couldn’t get the exact photo of the settees that I bided for, however I found one on google images that I think is the same sofas. ¬†However the colour doesn’t look exactly the same, my one is has a hint of green in it.

A couple of days ago I ordered a 12 socket lighting kit with a 32 bulb transformer, which arrived so quick. The only problem was I wasn’t in. I never realised how big the package would be, the sellers really padded up the items, so the postman left a “pick up” note through my door. I had to go down to the post office to collect it, I’m really glad that I live very close to one.

Some more items purchased off Ebay

I brought some more items off Ebay just now. I brought a miniature floor lamp and a mahogany coffee table. They both look amazing, especially the coffee table which resembles my nan’s so much.

Here are the images;

I’ve realised that I don’t think I’ll be able to meet the deadline of ordering everything off Ebay by tomorrow because some of the bidding times end in 5 days or so, however I’ll order as much as I can.

Dolls house lighting

I found this terrific site that deals with doll houses and a feature that I plan to add to my model is lighting. This small detail will definitely bring the room to life. The website supplies everything. Its simply doll house heaven.  www.dollshouse.com

I at first thought that it would be difficult to work with lighting and to set it up, but they have a masterclass video on their site explaining how to do just about anything.

The prices look a bit expensive on the site so I might have a look around on Amazon and Ebay and see if  I can get it a lot cheaper on there.

Below is some lights that I think resembles what my nan had in her house. It would be great if I actually found something miniature that really was in her house at full size. All these images came from The Dolls House Emporium.
