Shooting miniatures

Recommended Posts

Hi! I have to shoot a miniature: a tree falling down and crashing to the floor in scale 1:10. I read in the AC manual that that I should shoot it al 75 fps. But whixh lense docyou recomend? Wide angle? Normal? Which T stop? Distance ro object? What about light?

You'd want as much light as possible on a normal lens in order to increase your depth of field akin to how you'd be further away from a full sized object (and thus have more depth of field). On a 10:1 scale I would probably want to be around an 11/16 for a T stop.

Thankfully we're digital now so I'd say look at the monitor and see if it feels like it's properly "in focus" compared to how a real tree would look .
