Beautiful photography and great figures, Simmi! ... ... ... ...

It is obvious that you know a lot about the American Civil War (ACW)! I love the flags, the sashes on your officers, the Confederate artillery. In fact, I like every foto. (I have looked at all of them over and over.) ... :)

What kind of lighting do you use? And, what kind of camera? Your pictures look like scenes from a Civil War film!

Very well done. And, I look forward to seeing lots more of your battle scenes in the future.

Thank you for sharing Simmi!

All the best,
Richard


Hi Richard,

I use a Sony digital 8 video camera and the lights are normal Lamps.  As I was still very young I was already interested in the american civil war.  I still know as I was at school and every day I paint some soldier  :D

I still work on the pictures with Photoshop 8 of Adobe.  The original pictures do not see always so good  :oops:

Thank`s to all here    :P
I am spurred by your comments  :D
Regard Simmi

So then, I will post some new pics.
This Diorama should actually represent Fredericksburg however the place was much too small.  
Soon, I will post new pics with a new Diorama  :D

may i ask a customising/historical question?

would it be correct to use the
1)checkered shirt of the male gardener special 4613 or
2)the old worker kliky wearing blue overalls or dungerees(?) or
3)jeans

for ACW, in case they were not 'invented' yet?

"The grand, grand, grandfather???" ... :lol:

I may be "old," Simmi ... But, I'm not THAT old ... :lol:

Your new fotos are wonderful. (I love the one of the dim-witted Yankee officer standing in the middle of the creek ... :)

BTW, Simmi, I like your avatar!

And, Capitan Enrique ... I like your NEW avatar (just in time for Halloween)! ... ;)

All the best,
Richard

Fantastic photos, Simmi! I love the close-up shots. They really give a feeling of being present at the battle instead of just viewing it from afar. 8)  
I also like the way you added smoke to the cannons. Is it made from cotton wool?  :)

My first thought was that Simmi was dating you by your medieval attire, Richard, but perhaps I was wrong.  :P :wink:
JustForKl!cks has had a make-over! Come and check out the new look site! :)

wow simmi i am more than impressed!  :shock:
the western theme always was my favourite and i like the ur soft customizations! could u let us know what kind of paint u use? and how u apply the paint? a brush or something else? (a stupid question maybe but i am only starting off and would be very grateful for any hint :D) thanx a lot in advance and i will visit ur site it looks awsome!
I left my love a letter in the hollar of a tree.
I told her she would find me in the U.S. Cavalry.
High, yo, down they go, there's no such word as can't.
We'll ride clean down to hell and back for Ulysses Simpson Grant.

@Flash

I´m sorry for my delay  :oops:

The hats and caps I paint with grey spray color and I use still Revell Color.  I print out and cut the flags with my printer. So, that`s all I think. The southern soldier looks like with civil clothes and Uniforms by the way  :D

Some new pics and my first Sharpshooter in the 20th Maine Infantry. I hope you like him ...
