iPhone 5S Model Photography - LUNX 80026
For model photography I have leaned heavily on the camera that comes standard in my iPhone versus the more heavyweight Canon cameras in my photography arsenal. For individual roster shots and even closeups up-to a half a car in size, the regular view of the iPhone camera is just fine.
Today's HO scale models have incredible detail at the fine-print level, however. These details can be difficult to capture with the depth-of-field limitations of many cameras. To capture these small markings, I actually moved the iPhone farther away from the model and then zoomed in on the fine print to capture the image. Now I can easily read this microscopic writing on my computer screen. To read all of this writing on the car would require a magnifying glass and much patience.
