Dennis Morris


About the Artist:

    Dennis Morris has developed the diographic technique as a result of his lifetime interest in history and scale modeling. Dennis is a graduate of Grove City College with a Bachelor's Degree in History and has a Juris Doctor Degree from the University of Akron. Dennis resides in Montour Falls New York, where he is currently a local judge after being an Assistant County Attorney. His other interests include designing and coaching Marching Band, Drum and Bugle Corps and Color Guard.

 

About the Diographs:

    The Gettysburg Diographs are photographed on a 450-square foot diorama accurately representing portions of the terrain of the Gettysburg battlefield as it appeared in July of 1863. References for this included the period photographs of Brady, Gardner, and later shots by Tipton. The Warren map was a primary reference for topography. Troop movements are based on the works of Bachelder, Coddington and Pfanz, and the "Maps of Gettysburg" by Bradley M. Gottfried has been an invaluable aid. Each scene was posed one figure at a time.    
    For most shots, a tethered Canon A620 with PS Remote software was mounted on an extension boom with remote-controlled gimbals. While this allows fairly precise control of the photo process, over 20,000 shots have been taken thus far to generate 20 diographs. Actual photos of the Gettysburg battlefield were then blended in to create the distant scenery, horizon and sky. Scenes from the entire battle are expected to be completed by the Gettysburg Sesquicentennial in 2013.
