The last two posts showed how I made the forest diorama, and now it’s time to see it in action…
G.I. Joe action figures fit right into the landscape.
By adding a few sticks to the scene, the photo has more depth.
A red light bulb was used to simulate the brake lights of the vehicle. A bluish LED flashlight gives the effect of headlights shining on the figure.
This Halo Warthog is only a few inches long, but still looks to scale on the diorama.
I really like how this photo turned out but you need to see it large to appreciate it.
A string of red LED Christmas lights was added to the background in this shot.
Overall, I’m pleased with the way the forest diorama is working for the photos. It’s flexible enough to work with a variety of toy lines and scales without the need for any modifications. I will be able to get plenty of use out of this backdrop, and when I’m done, I can just pull out the trees and put the whole thing into storage.
