First time creating a diorama for photosFirst time creating a diorama for photos

Hello~!
I've been posting a lot of questions in the last few days, so I've taken some advice and tried creating my own diorama!

This is my first attempt ever, so any advice/ ideas would be so helpful~

Edit: I took photos today with Dekomori and just replaced the original pics I had with these :)

But any advice or thoughts on what to add/ take away would be great!

Rajke (Il y a 1 mois) #57239939Your diorama looks really nice. Your props don't give away that it is your first attempt. I see that you uploaded new photo's and deleted some you have made. When i saw the earlier photo's at your blog there was one photo where the image in the mirror was really nice and the center of attraction of that picture. Nice to see that you also saw that one too.

And indeed this a great photo.
Your diorama has really nice details in it like the shelf, bed and mirror. I like the paper-hanging in the background and i think you did an amazing job with the curtains. At one of your earlier photo's i saw something that you placed under the shelf. No idea what it was but i had the feeling that it was more a distraction from the photo then that it really ads something.
This photo you made without that part is very nice:

It has a lot of items and details in it and scene looks nice. The way Sanae is posed give the impression that she tried to hide something in the trash can.
In your earlier photo's the floor was visible. Besides the advice of the carpet that was given in the comments below you also/instead could try something that is much lighter of color. Your walls in the diorama have those nice light colorscheme and in my opinium the dark floor doesn't match with that.
The diorama and especially the props are very nicely made. I love to see more of it.

Whoops, I forgot to edit in the photos I took today, I'll add those instead so it's not empty:)
And thank you, I appreciate you taking the time to give advice on this!
This is so much fun, I can't wait to make more sets like these in the future

kaitylee (Il y a 1 mois) #57212911I was afraid to take her off the stand because she's screwed in
Actually, taking apart a screwed figure is usually less risky than one with pegs because you likely don't have to pry it away with as much force and risk breaking something.
Just be careful not to take a wrong angle when screwing it back in place.

I agree with Kyoshinhei... when taking photos, if that is the purpose of you making a diorama, try to think about the story you want to tell. Add details that help sell it! A lot of times you only see a small corner of a scene because of the look of the shot you’re going for, so make adjustments on the placement of items as you move around and find the money shot. For example take the middle photo. You have 3 figures on that shelf but she’s blocking most of them at that angle. Just move them slightly so the shelf looks more filled out. Think about the story you’re getting across and the character, add some details or pictures to the wall to emphasize that and make it more lived in.

It looks great! The furniture looks solid and nicely scaled, the curtains add a pop of dimension to the walls, and the wallpaper is very cute and fitting to the character.

If you'd like to add more to it, those shelves would be a great place to show off any gatcha miniatures you've got, and you could tape up trading card duplicates or printouts of flowers or even screencaps from favorite series to look like posters on the walls.

kyoshinhei (Il y a 1 mois) #57212000That looks very good so far.
If you want to improve it from there, I think the next step would be to focus on details to make the scene feel even more genuine.
First I think I would try to remove the base of the figure. If she can't stand on her own without it, I would probably cut a hole in the floor to house the base and then put a carpet (with holes for the pegs) between the figure and the base to hide it.
As for the diorama itself, here are a few ideas off the top of my head:
  • She looks like she's changing so maybe a few scattered clothes on the floor.
  • A bedside table with smartphone, etc. (though that would mean relocating the mirror)
  • Books or folded clothes on the shelves.
  • A drawer full of clothes poking from under the bed.
  • A few more things on the walls like posters, frames, light fixtures, shelves, etc.

Those are great ideas, thanks!

I was afraid to take her off the stand because she's screwed in, but I'll take a risk and see if she can come off because that base will look awful in photos haha!
I really like that under bed drawer idea, I'll look at making a drawer for sure.

Chris_Duvall (Il y a 1 mois) #57133393You did a very nice job - not bad at all for a first attempt!
I'd add a small carpet and some wall shelves to make it look a little cozier.
I recommend getting some Barbie furniture on eBay as the dimensions often fit scale and prize figures. You can carefully sandpaper the furnitur if necessary and apply some spray paint to give it a brand new look. (Make sure to apply a layer of primer first though.)
There are tons of great ideas on Pinterest, YouTube, etc.
Happy crafting - keep up the good work.

I had a carpet on standby, I'll definitely add one today~
And I was a little nervous about buying barbie furniture because I wasn't quite sure about what would fit and what wouldn't, but knowing this now I'll take the plunge!
Thanks for the advice!!

I applaud you for your work ethic, I would have bought the curtains lol, even though I'm quite fond and pretty good at arts & crafts.

I think creating something yourself adds a special touch, and the end result looks really nice. Good job.

Nice job; I like how you used SuperSonixo's pink chair.
