HMS Victory Model

In my volunteer photography work at the Maritime Museum of San Diego the ship models on the main deck of the Star of India are my next subjects.
It will not be possible to photograph most of the models outside the cases, so this is a test shot.
I think with the right lighting and dark cloths draped over the back of the cases I will be able to get acceptable images.
I really like this large model by the way.

Nikon D700 ,Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
1/40s f/2.8 at 58.0mm iso200 full exif

A great project for you! This ship is really intricate and detailed. I like it here in its natural setting too. V.

Super sharp capture of a beautiful sailing vessel! Pity you can't take them out of the cases, but with this light they should be fine. V.

A difficult project Walter. I like your photo but can see your dilemma. I suppose if you use a dark cloth you are in danger of getting reflections from the glass. I will be interested to see how you solve it.

A great shot, and I think you are right, a cloth background would be great. V

I built one just like it when I was a kid. It was the pride of my model fleet. I wish mine looked this good. Perhaps if you had photographed it, it would have. Great capture, Walter. Looking forward to seeing your images of the rest of the models on Star of India. ~BV~
