BTS creating a diorama
A couple of days ago I created a diorama for my latest couple of shots!
it was great fun to do and surprisingly wasn’t too time consuming.
The first step in making my diorama was to create a strong base for it that would be able to be transported around and moved for better lighting etc. I constructed my base out of a couple of disposable plastic container lids and duct tape. I also added some bamboo garden stakes to the sides to keep what I later put on the inside in place.
Next up was creating something solid around the outsides that would be able to hold sticks up to represent trees. My solution to this was play dough. The recipe I used ended up only using flour, salt, oil and water and was super quick and easy to make. I arranged it around the edges of the base in the areas I knew I wanted to place trees.
Thanks for sharing. I once put dirt on a tray too shoot pics on and really struggled to get my twig trees to stand. So the use of a layer or dough here seems like a really good idea!
