Behind the Scenes : Behind the Scenes: Fine Specimens

Curiosities

Sometimes our stories come together in the strangest ways. One idea sparks another and you end up trying something exciting and new. This is what happened with our "Fine Specimens" feature this October. We had the idea to create a "cabinet of curiousities" for Halloween but weren't sure how we would bring it to life. Tanya Graff from our style department had the idea to use large-scale photographic backdrops and build the ideas from them three dimensionally. It was a truly a fun project to work and was  interesting to see the scenes come to life. See how the backdrops were printed below. If you want to see them in person, come visit us at Maker Faire and have your photo taken in one of the sets this weekend.

  • Those are so cool. Where do you get the images from ?

  • I see Duggal lab's name towards the top of the last photo. They're a great company, and do work for loads of businesses.
