    My 1:16th dioramas are now on permanent display at the Canada Aviaion and Space Museum,in Ottawa,Canada.The apprailals for the museum were done by Shep Paine who valued them at between $15,000 and $25,000 (US) each.

    Actually what I did was take these pics before I finished the diorama and used the almost empty hangar to take these pics.You could also just build a nice backdrop and play with the lighting and maybe add a few figures to take your pics of a diecast collection.

    The possibilities are endless with digital pics!
    Just havin some fun with pics!
    Through modern digital photography we can all now be great dioramists.Using all the digital tools available to us now ,just add a little of your own creativity and before you know it the simplest diorama can take on new life.
    For some pics black and white are perfect for the era that you are trying to recreate.Lucky for me my eras of choice are mostly before the color stuff was invented anyway.
    All you budding dioramists out there now have a lot of options.Do you want to create an actual , physical ,3 dimensional diorama or do you want to be a Steven Spielberg type and bring all the elements of your ideas together and get your stuff on film(or digital in this case).Everyone recognizes that film makers, such as Spielberg in our era, are great artists but what do they actually have to physically show for all their creativity? A few cans of film?
    Storyboard dioramists can do exactly the same thing but our challenge is even greater because we only have one frame of our movie to work with and no dialogue.Our dialogue exists in our viewers imagination and we as artists are only there as guides to help point the way.
    As an artist it is such a wonderful time to be alive!

    Great stuff John. Just an FYI we'll be adding a digital side to the site soon. A place for all your pixel twisting fun and hopefully a few more tools to help our fellow builders with their artwork.

    You right its a great time to be alive for the artist.
