13 October 2008 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 44 - Part B. In this Part, "Joh" presents 10 new vignettes that he built during the year, mostly are figure-based vignettes using figure sets from several manufacturers. I won't go into details here and I didn't name them but used their respective names as appeared on boxes. And same as the last three dozen Parts, all pictures in this Part were taken using "time exposure" technique so as to achieve highest depth of field, i.e., using a tripod, setting shutter priority and selecting shutter speed that gives the highest f-stop (f19-f22) which is usually around 1/4 - 1 second, and setting self timer for shutter release. Lighting is natural, pictures were taken outdoor under the shades during daytime. Pictures were scanned from film by the photo shop, written on to a CD and resized by me. As always, I hope you'll enjoy viewing!

I'd like to thank for all kind feedbacks, compliments and suggestions that we received concerning Page 44 - Part A. They are very encouraging, and they inspire us to keep on producing quality models and dioramas and showing finest quality pictures. Comments and suggestions are welcome in my Model Maniac Forum
