HISTORICAL MINIATURES PHOTOGRAPHY: Arthur in all weathers




Beautiful Wargames Foundry figures of Arthur and two other Arthurian cavalrymen. Here we see them on a sunny day.





The same scene, but with a more spectacular sky. Personally, I don't like this one, because it looks like what it is: a studio shot. If the sky looked like that, the light on the men would be different in reality. Many people, though, say that this is their favourite.





This is my favourite. Here we see an overcast sky, and the trio in near-silhoutte, just as they would look in reality if you were looking up at them against the whiteness behind them. Some people seeing this photograph have mistaken it for one of real people dressed up, not models. That tells me that I achieved what I was aiming for. I should add, though, that the original photograph has subtle detail in the sky which has been over-looked by the scanner.

True, one could argue that Arthur is not strictly an historical figure, but I thought that he was better classified as historical than as fantasy, and I didn't want to have to create a category just for him.
