Among the thousands of projects running through my head, I thought of turning historical reenactors into paper soldiers.
The opportunity presented itself at the re-enactment of the Battle of Staffarda in the Piedmont region.
All the reenactors I met were very kind and lent themselves to the photo session.
At the moment I have managed to make paper soldiers of these different regiments all belonging to the same line or brigade if you like.
Micheletti of Catalonia
While for the opposing line I am working on the Red Dragoons.
What did I learn from this experiment?
1 Make sure that all reenactors are posed at the same distance from the lens.
2 One line must pose facing left while the other line must pose facing right.
3 A backdrop that is as neutral as possible helps enormously in the graphic editing work
I have made every effort to give them all the same size so that once cut there are no obvious different sizes
The print format is A4, I recommend sticking the soldiers on a black cardboard not too thick.
The scale is slightly larger than 1:24
