Well, that's a tiny little thing there, isn't it?

So.....I take it from the cryptic comment that we'll be seeing more of this model in future?

We've been discussing it in the Air Show thread. You can see more images of it at the air show Web site.

My, that's one big baby! Getting so much closer to that 1:1 scale I think we all desire.

Sheesh! That guy must have Hollywood compositing experience! Intelligent use of perspective, lighting direction, shadow density, lens distortion, etc. in shooting his 88-incher to match live still shots of real places/events just doesn't come naturally.

The bigger trick is to do this with MOTION footage!

First off, it looks to me as though some of the lighting around the guys is a little off. Just doesn't look quite right to me, like the way the guy on the left's hair is lit up a bit too bright and low on his left side.

The model has a lot of really good detail, that probably makes it look larger than it is. Would a close-up of a 44" model look like this?

Simply taking lots of photos over a lifetme, and studying art composition (not just photography, but other forms of art, too) will enable a person to get a more 'natural' sense of composing photos (getting them to look balanced/well arranged). It's hard work at first, getting it to look 'real' or non-forced, but with practice it does become easier... not as hard as one thinks, anyway.

Now, getting multiple elements composited (blended/merged) into a single image does take a bit more skill, but I should think that it's easier nowadays than before, what with computer tech being so much more powerful.

But here's a key point: all the tech in the world won't help if the artist hasn't got an eye for what looks real, and the only way to have that is to observe the real world. It's not some unattainable magic we're talking about, though... just look at the world around you! Draw, paint, electronically composite what you see--not necessarily how you know the objects look on their own but rather how they interact together--and you'll be a long way to the 'finish line' of getting a realitstic looking image.

^ Very good points... I agree with the idea of creating something that looks real, not necessarily completely accurate. A major giveaway for me is that there's just one photo... you'd think there would be several, for something this significant.
