Halo Diorama – How to Photograph a Diorama
This video looks at a basic set up to photograph a diorama indoors. The easiest thing to do is to take a diorama outside to a location with a great suitable backdrop but that’s not always possible. If you need to take a photo inside then this is the set up I use to do that. Sometimes I use my video lights which are constantly on but flash can be cooler in temperature which is no bad thing in the middle of summer.
It’s simple enough – two flashes to either front side of the diorama and then one above just to add the directional light you would actually get in a jungle.
Flash Set Up
- Camera – Any camera with basic manual settings and flash will do
- Flashes – I have three cheap speedlites – OR any standard light such as desk lamps
- Diffusion so that they are not too harsh
- Wireless or wired triggers so that they flash together
