What makes the Jeep shot work for me, in addition to the realistic poses of the two figures, is the glimpse of the chainlink fence and gate through the bushes in the background, as though they were just driving past. The little background details can really make or break a scene, and in this case they make the scene.

Now that I'm awake again, back to the nap-on-the-sofa photo: did you make the sofa yourself?

Interesting, Dave, good points and I completely agree. Also interesting because i thought you were going to point out
what I noticed in the background, Jenna waiting patiently in the passenger seat. Smile

Waitaminute, that is the passenger seat(?)...must be an import... Laughing

Great randoms, Dal!!!

cheers cheers cheers

Thanks again guys! Jake's jeep is indeed an import Bri, the U.S version. Yes Dave I did make the sofa, just some bits of wood cut to size, screwed together and covered in material Very Happy . I used to spend a lot of time talking to MiskatonicNick about figure photography and he was always so helpful and friendly. I learned a lot from Nick.

Just some bits of wood screwed together, he sez! I've been attempting to craft some furniture in 1:6 and other scales, and it's not easy; or at least, it's not easy to end up with something that looks halfway decent!
Razz

That "and covered in material" part gets tricky real fast!  pale

Thanks for the info!

I found that wooden tea/cup coasters (the square ones) make very good 1/6 scale sofa sides, also 2"x1" wooden posts, cut to length size are the ideal height for a vam/joe or female to sit on when stood on the 2" side, or alternatively, using the 1" side, then cutting some wood to make cushion type squares will give you the ideal shape. I used bubble wrap pulled over the wooden frame to dive depth, but that is optional, then I used a staple gun (hand held) to strensh the material across the wood and staple from underneath. I hope that helps David?

Thanks for the peek into your techniques! Yes, I have used bubble wrap for cushions. I also fashion cushions out of styrofoam. Crafting the frames out of wood is a good idea because then you can use a staple gun. I have mostly been using cardboard or foamcore board and hot-melt glue. It is difficult to stretch fabric into position and hold it in place when using the hot glue.

I apologize for derailing the photo topic. Perhaps I shall start a "making furniture" topic, or I will search to see if there is one already.
