Raiders of the Lost Ark by Allen Stewart 6 June 2015
Raiders of the Lost Ark by Allen Stewart Canon EOS 50D, 100mm macro, 1/5sec at f/3.2, ISO 100 Allen Stewart was the winner of our March forum competition with the theme Life Imitating Art. We asked readers to think of their favourite scene from a film or book and then recreate it. There were many great images, but Allens stood out from the crowd. I made the image as part of a set of movie-scene images, says Allen. I decided to do a project of iconic movie scenes. I made this set using a mixing bowl as the roof, which had holes drilled in it so I could direct the light inside. The base was hardboard, which then had pebbles and stones glued on to make it look like a cave. I then added leaves and twigs, and lit it with a blue torch at the back using two small lighting units.
