Light Halo Pictures of Miniatures tips and tricks

Come check out this cool little portable light halo for your phone or tablet that makes taking pictures of your miniatures secretly easy, and won’t break the bank!

Getting a picture of a miniature is sometimes easier said than done. Games Workshop knows this as well, so recently they gave us a couple tips to capture that perfect image.


It’s no secret that photographing your minis can be a pain, and a lot of it has to do with poor lighting. GW suggested using a light source on either side of the model, maybe even investing in some daylight lamps as well. But, what if we told you there’s a cheaper way to get good lighting at a fraction of the price.

Tired of dark minis with shadows all over?

This awesome little hobby tool is only going to cost you $11 on Amazon, and the best part is it clamps over any phone or tablet to help keep the light right where you need it every time.

While additional lighting could never hurt, this light is perfect for those times you’re working out of your Hobby Go Box at a local store, or friend’s house, you finish up something you’ve been working on, and really want to snap a picture to share with everyone. It seems to work just fine with a decent amount of overhead light, which is the kind you would have for painting in the first place for the most part.
