View Full Version : Mixing different Scale figs in photos

Has anyone mixed both 1/6 scale and smaller figures in one photograph so as to create the illusion the figs were the same size.

I have been meaning to do this with some 1/18 BBI stuff. It is a matter of depth of field. You want to use a low f-stop to blur out the background and then mess around with the distance away from your 12" figure (like a 1/18 humvee ). It really helps to have a SLR or DSLR camera and a macro lense make this even easier.

Thanks for the advise.

I haven't used different sized figures and made them look the same size but I have used figures that where the same size and made them look different sizes. Snake and the Metal Gear in the photo are the same size (which I suppose makes them different scales).

i have used 1/6 scale stuff in real world photos and used as small as HO scale 1/86 to do the same. it can be very cool when done right.

Do you have any photos of the same that are posted here or at any other site?
