Photo Background

Postby Fry_slayer » Wed Dec 29, 2004 6:41 pm

This thread is created in response to questions posted by some members regarding my photo's background. Since it is in appropriate to post such technical relativity in the original thread i am answering some of the questions here.

Q. What did i used for my back ground?

Believe it or not, just an A3 size paper printed with self made background.
If u were able to zoom out from my pic u will be able to see somrthing like this :P

Q. Can i give it available to the rest of u guys?
I lost the original file in the picture i posted in my CCC2 creations :? (Dont ask)
But since u requested i just created a new one for ur inspiration
, the possiblity of different design is endless with this

Thanks for posting!

I've used pretty much the same idea at times, with plain pieces of paper, but this looks a lot more impressive. Someday I may have to try this more official-looking variant for myself.

Thanks again.

Hi Fryslayer,

Your photographs with these images are very nice. This paper technique was probably the same one used by LEGO in the 80's for castle. It is too bad that all images are photoshoped now instead of the old ways.
