I usually take pictures of the layout using my iPad, but thought I'd have a go using a compact camera for a change. I've had a Panasonic Lumix https://www.panasonic.com/uk/support/discontinued-products/cameras-camcorders/dmc-tz60eb.html for a few years now, that I use on motorcycle trips and for general photography. Although generally happy with the results that I get from it, the smallest f stop that it will go down too is F8 and I thought this would cause problems with depth of field on models. The pictures were taken using a tripod, with the camera set on F8 for an exposure of about half a second.
I found some free software online https://www.nchsoftware.com/photoeditor/download-now.html which has a "sharpen focus" setting which I've been playing with, I've also used the software to make the image size suitable for posting.
I hope you enjoy the pics!
