Man ver­sus di­nosaur

Here’s how to cre­ate your very own Juras­sic Park...

01 Scale it down

Have your model stand a suit­able dis­tance from the cam­era – the fur­ther back they go, the smaller they’ll ap­pear in frame. Po­si­tion the di­nosaur so your model can in­ter­act with it, us­ing Live View to help with com­po­si­tion. This is where con­vinc­ing act­ing can pay div­i­dends!

02 Stay sharp

Both of your sub­jects need to be sharp so that it looks as though they are on the same plane. As they are far away from each other, you’ll need to close your aper­ture down to get a deep depth of field. We used aper­ture-pri­or­ity mode and shot at f/29.

03 Step back

Move your­self fur­ther back to keep the en­tire scene in fo­cus. Hy­per­fo­cal dis­tance charts or apps can help here. Type in your set­tings and the app will tell you how far you need to stand back from your near­est sub­ject for both to ap­pear sharp.
