I relate easily to Elly's process, coming from a theatrical background. I've made several stage models myself (see below for my design of Shakespeare's "The Tempest"), and I can certainly attest to the exhausting amount of time and care that goes into this kind of work! Elly's end result is strengthened by her use of light, as well as her ability to skillfully photograph each piece. If I were to attempt this kind of work (and I'd really love to try), I think I'd need a photography refresher first--and maybe some lighting inspiration from some of my design-tech friends.
