Martian Photos

Making Old style Photos

 The result of my best friends effort with some of my photos.

I started this blogg some years ago, when I was building my scenario, Mars 1889, for a Game Convention in Sweden. It was ment to be some sort of progress report and also a sort of "whip" for my own back - so I had to finish what I started. I think you get the picture.

So now two years later (or is it more?), I am making some nice cards for stats and initiative. 
At last, some may say ...

The Belgians Martian Walker Mrk III

I found it really hard to get some good pictures. I have friends who actually can handle the camera, light and exciting angles. They have given me some advice - thou I really cant make it work. 
So, my friend gets a lot of crappy shots to work with.

 The Oenotrian shield Gunners didnt like the marching orders at all...

I started out with alot of figures, placed as they where moving about in the canal fortification. It didnt work - at all. Most of them where out of focus. So I had to shoot them one at a time.

I also have a bridge to build and I have not even started. For some time, I blamed my desk - you know - no space to work in. So I had to clean that up... it took me about 2 hours but now we are ready to get some work done.

Looks nice and almost too clean...now.

I will post more of the old time photo progression and also more of scenario progress and preps for the upcoming LinCon 2015. 
Stay tuned!

  1. Projects are not about the game - they are about the journey! I've been running my VSF blog for 9 years and I'm nowhere near where I thought I would be either, but its still fun :-)

    Love the pics - please keep them up! The great thing about digital pics is that you can take a dozen of each shot with different lighting etc and one at least will work.

    1. You are so right Paul !
      ..and I also feel its a fun ride =)

  2. They're looking good. And what Paul said :-)
