I just remembered to reference again the work of the artist that gave me the idea for thie shadowbox background. Gregory Crewdson takes shoots remarkable cinematic style photographs with strange, unsettling themes and amazing use of light. Some time ago he assembled the Natural Wonder Series that involved intricate dioramas with stuffed animasl, among other things and illuminated background images. Look at these Google results...

Google: Gregory Crewdson Natural Wonder Series

I want to do more setups with use of these shadowbox backgrounds. I'll never get anywhere near the level of artistry in those Gregory Crewdson pieces, but they are good for ideas anyway.

Thanks! I really want to try more with these illuminated background.

I'm pondering doing another setup, also at the museum, for this critter...

Thanks!

Somebody on Facebook just linked this gallery with tiny little diorama scenes that included real live critters and fanciful, illuminated backgrounds...
