Photographing miniatures



What can you do if you want to photograph many miniatures, but your camera focuses only in one spot, blurring everything else?

First you should check how to set the aperture of your camera. If you can find an aperture size that fits your needs, you can take shots where everything can be in focus.

If you can't find a good setting, you can always take the shot from a bigger distance. This will allow the camera to get more of the picture into focus, however it will also mean the loss of quality. However, most modern cameras have so high quality pictures as default that it won't really affect your photos.

If these don't work, you can take shots of the individual miniatures, and copy them together using a photo editing software.
