PERIOD AIRCRAFT DIORAMAS
I am asked quite often to create historical aviation combat 'atmospheric' scenarios of situations that may or may not have taken place. I use plastic models that I photograph against a greenscreen background, using the same lighting as the planned background elements. Then I composite the model in Photoshop, against a new background, complete with manufactured prop blur, weapon signatures, vortexes etc. All images © Jon Davison.
