I admire the detail but the lighting is what really makes the picture. As a diorama maker I find that the lighting is the hard part and good lighting really allows the mood to come through. Your lighting is perfect for this diorama!

Thanks!
I'm a commercial photographer, so I'm all about lighting. For this image, I only used a small flashlight. I lit one area at a time and then combined all the different exposures into one picture.

I wondered if you used a filter with several holes or several small lights-thanks for the tips and comments!

I absolutely love this! I do the same thing with my figures and I need to know how you made the shop gate. It looks perfect. And are those bricks sculpted?

I can't say enough how amazing this looks!

Thanks so much!
The roll down gate is corrugated cardboard with one side pealed off.
The bricks are printed on paper and pasted onto foamcore.
What I learned in this shot was that printed materials make a huge difference.
We are surrounded by the printed word in real life, but it is frequently omitted in scale models.
This was a breakthrough for me.

And thanks for sharing that tidbit. I was thinking about using small scale printed media in my next model project and this cemented my idea. Looks too awesome. Are you ever going to take some behind the scenes shots for a future pic like this?

This is really cool. I'm sure a complete list is out of the question(haha), but what are some of the materials you used to build this set?
Reply
:iconmanofaction7666:
ManOfAction7666 Featured By Owner May 29, 2011
styrofoam, Elmer's glue, coffee grinds, printer ink, spray cheese, a broomstick, Sculpy, string, acrylic paint, nursery trays, cardboard, etc...
Pretty much everything in my studio!

How big are the dimensions?
Any chance of seeing a "raw" photo, quick snapshot, without the "mood lighting" and whatnot?
Reply
:iconmanofaction7666:
ManOfAction7666 Featured By Owner May 29, 2011
Sadly no.
I ran out of time and had to strike the set to make way for paying work.
The brick wall is about 30 inches long.
When I set it up again, I'll try to make some behind the scenes shots.
You better go ahead an watch me so you don't miss out! ;-)
