Background props are highly important tools to add visual interest to a diorama photo. Strategically they are items used to break up the monotony of a scene, or of simply using the same props what other photographers use.
If you are a toy photography enthusiast you may like taking photos of your toys, especially in a setting -- a diorama. Whether the diorama is a set built up by scratch or outdoors there is always the need to "dress up" the scene with items -- equipment.
An action figure usually comes with gear, and some brands sell action figures with lots of extra gear: ammo boxes, barrels, but very little large gear are included. Boxes and other equipment need to be made by the the photographer. Sometimes the equipment is kitbashed from various toy lines or model kits. In all cases obtaining an interesting background prop is a slow process -- either have to hunt for the prop or have one built. And if many props are needed, it's a much slower process.
At DioWarriors we decided to make a series of generic props designed just for the background -- a background filler. A way to provide an easy solution for visual interest. Need a cluttered table? An office with boxes and stacks of paper? A factory scene with large mechanical structures? It is a lot easier to simply buy the prop than hunt around for it.
The DioWarriors generic props are varied. There are simple models for items that sit on a table. Large items that fill up a wall. We have modular generic props where you can build a machine, making it look as simple or complex as you desire. Maybe you want something with a lot of piping? That is doable.
Our first generic background props are beginning to appear on the store. We can't wait to see what people do with them.
