So I am putting this out on the table as the first question of the day:
How do you manage to take quality photos/video of your in progress battle reports, or do you prefer to use plain text or program such as Vassal?
|Extremely fuzzy, probably because of the metal|
This is an area though that I will gladly admit as a major weakness of mine. When I get into a game, I focus on the game and don't tend to remember to take any type of photo evidence until after the game is over, and by that time, it isn't really needed.
The few games where I do recall to take pics, they end up sub-par, or simply not effective in what I wanted. I have tried to keep a camera nearby, but found that after the battle was done that the pics weren't clear at all. not sure if I need to get a tri-pod or some other form of setup device, but even if I did that, would the pics be any better?
|No focus for one reason or another|
|Only one pic of eight was worth posting|
Granted, some battle reports can be better then others, but in general most people seem to have more luck then I do with my pics. Of course this could be simply my imagination. A quick Google search shows a pretty wide array of various battle reports one degree to another.
The use of Vassal is another common method of trying to convey the battle. Some people can make it look decent, but with just the short time I tried to use Vassal, I found the effort you had to put in was far more for smaller reward then standard photos.
So again I ask: How do you manage to get good photos/video, or do you prefer to use text or programs such as Vassal?
