Forced Perspective Dio
Posted by LoneTraveler on Saturday, May 2, 2020 1:47 PM

I saw this one segment and was interested. I did a search and didn't find anything about building A street for forced perspective photography. Seems pretty simple, but being new to this, I was looking for ideas. Could some point me to a link about it.

forced perspective diorama is a way to maximize available area to complete a scene. it's best to use a shadow box so that the diorama can only be viewed from one side. You can use different scaled models and converging lines to make a convincing view.

Hi! Hmmm;

       We do forcced perspective on the model trains that run on our displays. Waaay in the back the Trolley for downtown is "Z"Scale. Now as you get closer to the viewers position, the models get bigger. The cars and stuff and buildings at mid point are " N " scale. Now, that then is blended into the close up features that are intended to be and are "H.O.Scale.
 I once did a large Car Lot for a client. The cars in back were " Hot Wheels" The cars up close were 1/32. The scene was for a future enlargement of the dealership and service and sales area for a new brand.

You really don't even need much in the way of scenery...just enough to engage the viewer and make them think they know what they're looking at.
