By the way @acro-man  Do you already have the indominus of Nanmu Studio? I ask you because I pre-ordered it to a Chinese store but that product is not yet commercialized.

(p.s.  your post is off-topic  C:-) .. but....  Nanmu Indominus is already available in China only. They wrote that foreigns customers would have received their orders later than chinese ones.. )

Forgive with all my heart @RobinGoodfellow  and the rest of the DTF members. It is true, this message did not come to mind. It will not happen again I will try to take note of my mistakes. So sorry.

Getting to the point the photography tutorial that you are giving Robin is great. You learn a lot and I always follow this thread because it is extremely interesting.

Photoshop' post-production can be boring.
But it can really help improving weak pictures.

Sometime I see some pictures on my Flickr albums that could be upgraded with some post-production' treatment.

Here some recent re-tooled pictures from my past Flickr albums:

On my personal opinion, the purpose of a picture is to be viewed with pleasure by people.

I recently bought PNSO Microraptor on Aliexpress.
For sure a difficult figure to portrait properly on a photographic image.
That's because of the iridescence on its plumage.




The best way to show iridescence is controlling light reflections with a circular polarizing filter on lens:

That's a regular shot without filter:




With a polarizing filter you can control light reflections the best way: just rotate the filter clockwise/ anticlockwise to reduce/maximize effects.
The result:




Even on a full frontal image:

I have to say PNSO did no bad job in shooting and editing the product photos, but your`s are even better. Guess I`ll get the figure and cut away those stupid teeth, in the snouth it`s okay, no iridisecnt color to restore there and otherwise it`s a stunner :)

That's an interesting prismatic effect on the overturned cup, too :)

Thanks for this primer!

As always, your entire collection is fabulous. On the other hand, although it belongs to previous posts, Robin did not know that artistically photographing the PNSO microraptor (latest version) is a difficult task. Perhaps my amazement is due to the fact that I do not have a camera.

That means this year's PNSO microraptor iridescent painting is a true work of art.
