How to take those pictures ?
You need a camera with adjustable aperture and exposure time on a tripod and a b/w film with high sensitivity. To model the sea level take a piece of dark velvet and put your ship model on it. Hang a sheet behind the scenery as a slide screen. Use a slide projector and a slide showing heavy clouds to produce a realistic background and to light the model. Choose the largest aperture value to get the widest focus range. Exposure time can be up to four seconds. Check these with an exposure meter if your camera has no automatic.
