Digging it. Looks ethereal!

Life is like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless and perfunctory gift nobody ever asked for. Unreturnable because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So you're stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down because there's nothing left to drink. Sure once in a while there's a peanut butter cup or a English toffee, but they're gone too fast and the taste is fleeting. So you end up with nothing but broken bits of hardened jelly and teeth shattering nuts. If you're desperate enough to eat those all you've got left is a. An empty box, filled with useless brown paper wrappers.

Your miniatures are beautifully painted.
You really need to take better pictures to do them justice=)

Ugh agreed! I wish I had more time to research how to use the camera better.

Here are a couple more that are completed:

Your work looks great! I would recommend maybe black paper rather than the velvet for a background, because it may reflect light less. It seems like your mini may be washed out by a flash too. Try without. Another possibility is to put the background much further back so the flash cant reach it. You see this in macrophotography of flowers and stuff. Finally, might try even closer to fill the frame with the subject(s). If you are selling your abilities, think of the camera work as your billboard. Bad pics = no work. Great stuff though!

Thanks for the advice Ill def try the suggestions! I messed around with the camera more this weekend and the colors look so much better then before, I took down the Branchwych pic and will post the new one up soon. Colors look so much more vibrant compared to the last photos. Still not 100% where I want to be, but I think it looks better.

You would do well to work on your camera set-up and post... cropping and zooming a bit would go a long way -

The minis themselves look nice but the pics are a bit distracting -
