Making a Scene!

blog-0695709001402440129.jpgA back scene of course! Have been firmly wedded to the computer for the last couple of days doing proper work but this did mean that I had my big super fast PC fired up so was able to play with the backdrop when I got bored of PhotoShopping product photos.

 

I used as a basis a panorama I took near Arras last week but had to stitch it together by hand as all automated attempts were just rubbish. I overlayed onto this a cruelly enlarged original WW1 picture that I had tinted for the remains of the village. Some additional textures and puddles were overlayed onto the rather too pristine fields to dirty them up a bit. I didn't go too mad with trying to create the clasisc 'lunar' landscape, as the area depicted is some way behind the front and contemporary panoramas show that (with a few notable exceptions of course), that the front was often green and overgrown anyway.

 

So will order this tomorrow from a local firm. i will get it printed as a 13 foot long PVC banner. Not the idea thing but will be tough and an awful lot cheaper than doing it on photo paper. I am not 100% convinced that I have got it right anyway so this could well just be a Mk1 version.

 

Next big problem will be how to fix it!

And mine! Actually there didn't seem to be much difference between the finish on the PVC and the roller banners when I looked at them this morning. Is not horribly expensive though and can be used to make sure it looks right and things line up properly if I have to get it redone in a more expensive paper.
