Here is a video capsule of a lighting I project worked on over the last couple of years.


I originally set out to light the models so that I could capture "box art" photographs of each ship but after experimenting with the different circuit designs the scope and purpose expanded quite a bit. I decided to see how far I could push some of the lighting ideas and how many features I could fit into the models. I was pretty happy with the results although I do think some of it may seem a bit over the top. At the end of the day I have a cool little "twiddle box" that lets me tweak the look anyway I like.

During the project I learned a lot and gathered a fair amount of visual information. I thought I would share some of the process with you guys in hopes that it may give you a few ideas for your own lighted model projects.

I would be happy to answer any questions about the project and comments are welcome. What do you think?

Regards,
Matt

Thanks Tom. "Variety, It's the spice of lighting!" ...so many choices so much time to accomplish... A plus is that I can use each of the four circuits in any blend with the others so there's plenty'o options for different looks :thumbsup:
