    Hi everyone, I could do with some help and advice. Our school production is Little Shop of Horrors. We don't paint the scenery anymore but project images onto the back of the stage wall. If you look at my last upload the scene is meant to be of an old florists shop, on Skid Row. The local florist was lovely and let me take photos but it's a lovely, bright modern shop! I've tried my best to do something with it but would really appreciate suggestions, if you do have any advice could you be specific as my Photoshop skills are Ok ish but not fantatstic! Thanks in advance Jane

    Hi Jane. Completely 'off the wall' here but my son has just done this play for his years BTech production... They used black backdrops with the props setting the scene. Just a thought...

    Try the "Virtual Photographer" plug-in. It has several pre-set types you can select in both colour and B&W. Try the "spooky" in B&W and "Autumn Fall" in Colour. It may give you the effect you want. Just google "Virtual Photographer"


    The fundamental problem, as you know, is that the Architecture and Fixtures and fittings just look to modern. Needs a bit more "character" really. Do you have any other shops nearby you could shoot?

    Thanks I'll try those plug ins, the problem is that although there are lots of local florists they are all bright and modern! Jane

    Jane,
    Note sure this is the answer but it made give you some ideas. Could you copy, use or adapt scenic backdrops like these: "Scenic!"
    Hope you find a solution. Good luck with the show

    Have just uploaded one to my portfolio (no clicks please) that may be of use (then again may not). It's straight off the camera and could be made more moody for your purposes. If it's any use let me know and i'll send you the file
