Wow, I love the rain-streaked grime. Such good weathering!

Thanks guys !

Still ty to figure out how and what with this white balance. Gonna take some shots more I think to find out how and what to do about it. When I take the pre mode and measure the white balance with a grey card on the subject the color changes when I step back. The AF-S 60mm f/2.8G ED Micro is a fixed distance lens so I need to step back to get the whole subject. Well it's almost weekend and I'm pretty happy I shoot RAW to. Couple of shots to show the problem, and picture worked on with PS white balance done with "auto"mode. Pictures taken on a pure white piece of drawing paper with 2 softboxes loades with 4 105W daylight bulbs each..















Last shot is an original camera Jpeg.

Thanks!!

For a couple of days now I have this struggle with setting the white balance good for the new Nikon D5300. For years I do use the pre setting on my D60 and never had trouble like this or at least I can't remember that. So uesed to the camera that I layed down the grey cart, pointed shot and measured the white balance for decent pictures. Now with the upgrade in hands I can't find the right settings or not used to the camera I oversee something in the menu or the settings. Well for now I found a setting with 2 stops overexposed when shooting farder away. But see for yourself and make a comment how I can improve..I added 3 pictures one with the white balance setting and the exposure the meters in the camera says, and 2 with one stop overexposure each.

And to stay into the weathering stuff, these are shots of a new project on the bench. Scale 1 , or 1:32. Started to unscrew the undercarriage from the box and removed the wheels. The frame already has its first coat wich is a mixture of 2 brands primer, both Ammo by Mig and AK interactive make a good darker brown color primer wich I prefer to start with. Oh yeah, they are both named tracks primer..

Some thoughts. Well this white balance issue still bothered me so I decided to download the trail version of Lightroom CC and I must say I really like it. Still had an ongoing O scale project and I decided to work a bit on it and take some pictures afterwards.Can't tell too much about all the steps I took because of my publisher but I can show a couple of pictures taken in RAW and edited with Lightroom CC. Added the yellow boxcar as some kinda bonus with one of the featured settings used. Think I can make the copyrights a bit smaller..

Well guess I figured out the white balance thingies. Use an Expodisc 2.0 and must say not cheap but a great tool, and some white, grey and black cards. Did run these pictures through Lightroom and most of the time the white balance is pretty good but I just had to increase the exposure.With that set it's time to concentrate on the models again. Added some streaking grimes to the roof and a couple of pinwashes to enhance the details, bit of wheel splatter too..let the fun begin.

Martin,
I'd love to see a video or photos of your rolling stock on a layout, I bet it would really turn some heads.
Have you weathered any locomotives? I'd love to see that, too!
