Exploring Photography… Dioramas/Miniatures

A diorama is usually defined as a partially three-dimensional, full-size replica or scale model of a landscape typically showing historical events, nature scenes or cityscapes, for purposes of education or entertainment. Recently the art of photographing in miniature or dioramas has become very popular.

Photographing in miniature takes talent, much like painting in miniature. There is a great deal of thought and planning needed. Understanding how the mind “view” a scene, depth perception, lighting, detail, etc. is necessary. The results can be dynamic, humorous, and thought provoking.

Fine art photographs should be preserved by mounting on acid-free backing, and framed behind UV glass. Photographs should be kept out of direct sunlight to prevent damage to the image.

Below are some wonderful diorama photographs. As with all of my featured art/artists these are pieces I would purchase for myself or as a gift.
