That's fascinating. I now am curious if my camera has a way of changing the exposure as well. Probably does. Might have to look when I get off of work today.

Hi all First of all, thanks for all the nice comments. It's a bit hard to explain my workflow within 1000 characters, but I'll try to give a brief overview. I also added another image to this gallery that hopefully explains what I do. At the moment, I don't have the equipment to shoot the way I actually would like to shoot. So I'm doing a workaround for the time being until I can afford new tools. I set my cameras exposure to a value where it's basically pitch black. No matter what light is actually in the room. That's my starting point. When it's pitch black, I know that I'm in control of the lighting. Then I use my Flash light with an LED mounted on it and I take several pictures of my set. I usually have an idea where I wanna go with an image. Backlight, low light, bright, etc. So I move my light around and look into the viewfinder of my camera until I like what I see. Then I take several pictures. Then in post I use elements of each pictures that I like and combine them.

@Spartanz19 I would also love to know the answer to that question.

Just a question, what did you use for that beautiful lighting?

I love these little diorama battles you post. I think that's why I like MegaConstrux figures so much; they're the perfect size to be able to get some posing/detail out of, yet still have what seems to be an expansive scene in almost no space whatsoever.
