RE: Building Miniature Sets...

Nearly 4 years ago, I made two discoveries that forever changed my ideas about the possibility of ME being able to illustrate Children’s books. The first discovery I made was a photo series called Stormtroopers 365 where the photographer posed Stormtrooper toys in everyday scenes and photographed them…one per day for an entire year. The photos were amazing...and funny. That series combined with my second discovery, a cute wooden Viking character found at a local gift store, led me to begin experimenting with photographing miniatures. And through those early photos, I realized that I was onto something huge…that I could use miniatures to create and photograph “sets” to illustrate Children’s books.

This approach of creating “visual magic” actually is nothing new or secret. Hollywood has used miniature sets for decades in some of the biggest blockbuster movies of all time, like Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Lord of the Rings and many others. But THAT’S Hollywood and they have deep pockets and access to experienced model builders. 
That’s Great for Them! What About Me?
Great question!

My “revelation” of using miniature sets to illustrate books has led to years of testing, experimenting and honing an art form that is so simple, anyone can use it to create illustrations for their OWN books…even you. In the past, I have shared some of my insights on how to illustrate books using miniatures, but I'm back with incredible new insights and strategies that I haven't shared publicly before now. 
So Why Use Miniature Sets for BOOKS?
Glad you asked! I’ve discovered that the benefits of working with Miniature Sets to create book illustrations are HUGE! Here are just a few…
  • Control over your story environment.
  • No limit to what you can create.
  • Easy to maintain the visual continuity of your images.
  • Easy to change your angle, field-of-view and point of view quickly.
  • The components you incorporate are reusable for other set illustrations.
  • Scenes can be easily be assembled using off-the-shelf elements.
  • You can go simple or complex…it’s up to you.
  • You don’t need fancy, expensive camera gear to get awesome results!
  • The resulting photos are easy to work with and adjust.
