We all love to share our painted miniatures online be it in Discord, WhatsApp group, Facebook or Instagram etc. to get critiques or likes or just to add into your plethora of painted miniatures to show off your hobby. But not having basic knowledge of how to take photographs of miniatures might get your post be swiped up unnoticed or else unable to get proper critiques.

We have the privilege to have one of our community members, Fazrin, to teach you how to take photos that can help you present your painted minis better so to proudly share them on social media or your friends.

Participants will learn how to properly frame and shoot their miniatures by just using their mobile phones whilst using available lights like table lamps or even the sun! Learn how to do basic photo editing to make the photos look better before you post it online!
