Which lens for model car photos (Canon EOS 400D)

07 July 2014 - 11:16 AM

Focus isn't sharp enough with the 400D's kit lens (18-55mm) and I'm looking to by a not-too-expensive, dedicated lens for model car photography. Any suggestions?


WORKS IN (very slow) PROGRESS

03 July 2014 - 12:20 PM

I haven't finished anything since last October and progress on these two Johans has been slow, even by my standards. I'm putting them up here in the hope that it will get me moving again.

 

First up is the DeSoto. It will be curbside but I spent some time lowering the interior floor - slight improvement. I now have to paint the interior, a daunting task (unless you're Steve Guthmiller!). The wire wheels are from the AMT 62 T/Bird and were very kindly donated by "my80malibu" - I owe you one Gabriel. Thanks Carl (Slusher) too, who offered to do the same.

Next is the 62 Chrysler 300H. It's pretty close to completion, just needs to be assembled and the engine bay detailed. I didn't lower the floor on this one, it's not really worth the effort. The molded in distributor was removed and replaced with one from Morgan Automotive Detail. The tyre in both photos is from the AMT Parts Pack but the Chrysler should really have thin-walls - can't decide.

Next thing I need is a better lens for my EOS Canon 400D . Thinking of the 60mm 2.8 macro - does anybody here use that lens?

My finished models 2013

26 December 2013 - 11:04 AM

It was a good modelling year for me, never finished anything like this many before and posted my first pics in September. As in previous years, the magazine, this site and you people were my main source of inspiration. Thanks, and all the best for 2014.
