Looking for new TFW2005 Photo Staff

We are looking for people that want to help out doing photos for the TFW2005 galleries. This would entail working with the TFW2005 crew behind the scenes to ensure duplication of galleries does not take place. Then you would upload your photos to the TFW2005 server. Once the galleries are online they will be posted on the front page with credit to you for the world to see. Multiple people are wanted to work towards this. The goal is to consistently deliver new Transformers galleries to the readers of TFW2005.

Roles like this are a introductory position into the staff, which can result in more site responsibilities such as modding and other content positions.

Conditions:
Clear images showcasing transformer figures in 1000~1200 pixels resolution, cropped when needed so that there isn't too much blank space around the subject.

Images must have clean white background; not "painted over" as it makes the subject appear inconsistent with the background. Images should be along the lines of these samples:




A gallery generally requires minimum 40 quality images from different angles, with different poses. Comparison shots are a big plus as well.

Note:
To achieve the desired results, a light box is very strongly recommended. Also some experience using image editing software like Photobucket is a big plus. If you are interested, PM some sample pictures to either Sol Fury or Gears. Please make sure your images fit all of the above criteria. Thanks!

The figure you pick doesn't have to be the latest one!
We appreciate if you could help out to fill in the gaps of our existing Toy Gallery.

But first off, send us some sample pics, looking forward to hearing from you

Uhh, what exactly do you mean by "painted over"?

It means covering the background using image editing software. Something like this;

Thank you for the link. I looked at your RM Burning Convoy album. The images are nice, but the background needs to be white. Please refer to Gears' images in the OP

We'd really prefer receiving images, not links. Send us your best shots!
