Create your own fantasy world in a shoebox, (or a larger box if you wish) This is a diorama, rather like a miniature version of the scenes that museums create to display things. You will download and print a background then populate your world with any objects, models, toys, found objects, leaves, twigs, stones, in fact anything, you will only be limited by your imagination.
Once you have finished creating your world you will photograph it in both natural and artificial light, using torches to create a mood. You will be able to experiment with camera settings to bring parts of your world in and out of focus.
If time permits you will be able to download your images to Photoshop and edit images of yourself into your diorama.
