I've also found that white enamel takes on an ivory tinge after a few years, which is a bit of a problem with my High Elf army (everything is white.) It is really apparent in the unicorn shot, which used to be pure white.

Ouch. Thumbing through their gallery is depressing.

The miniature should be well lighted and don't jar the tripod during long exposures or your miniature will be blurred. The longer the exposure and the smaller the aperature the more will be in focus.
If using a digital, the camera usually has the ability of automatically choosing film speed and aperture setting based on the available lighting.
I use a digital camera that has macro capabilities which means the camera is designed to shine in areas of close-up work instead of telephoto. For most digital users find and use the close-up setting on your camera. If you are comfortable using manual setting, experiment and go for it. I f not let the camera do most of the work for you and concentrate on scene set up.
I have found that the digitals I have used have a better depth of field on auto setting than most film cameras do on manual. Go figure, but a wonderful surprise, nevertheless.

C'mon. Embrace your inner Geek!
My Saturday night features the PC game "Defending the Reich." How many pretenders to the "Throne of Geek" are spending tonight sorting out Gruppens of HE-219s Uhls, JU-88s and ME-110s? If you know the difference between the Tame Boars and Wild Boar night fighters, then you Sir, can have my crown. (but only for tonight).
And thanks Quipp. You cleared up my problem with a nice response.

Basically it's a white sheet of plastic that has two holders so you get a perfectly neutral background and little shadow if at all if you use the right lighting, and can be easily setup on a desktop.
