In a fit of rage… Perfect miniature photography?

 In a fit of rage I went out and purchased a new camera lens, new tripod, tethering cable for shooting connected to the PC and a wireless shutter release. (well… its new to me anyway)

Below are the first couple of photos out of the new lens, I'm a lot happier with these than the results with my previous gear still a long way to go in terms of skill.

It does bring about another question though, how close is too close in miniature photography, for my minis if I go too close you start to see brush marks and dust (a surprising amount of dust!) and that actually detracts from the image. Perhaps its mini dioramas that are the next step, a small squad, a building and some trees all arranged nicely.

Perfect miniature photography may be like the perfect battle report, perhaps it doesn't exist?

Gear:
Nikon D600 Full frame DSLR
Sigma 70mm Full frame Macro
Gitzo tripod
2 x Budget desk lamps
F16
Perhaps 2 seconds (whatever the camera work out on aperture priority with a -1.5 stop adjustment)
About 600mm from subject
Don't forget mirror lockup and delayed shutter
