I want to start by saying thank you to Shelly for the invitation to write something for this Blog. It is a great opportunity to share my hobby of photography with other Lego fans from around the world.
Truth is that I am not taking photo’s of Lego for a long time. My first big passion was Macro photography. I think it is just super to discover the beauty of nature and showing it’s little wonders.
Last year I started taking pictures of Lego after we sorted my boyfriend’s old Lego after cleaning up at this parents house. I thought it would be just great combining the beauty of nature with Lego figures in it and try to make a pretty scene with it. Because Lego is so small, the comparison with macro photography is very close, so it was a real win-win situation for me. I like Lego a lot because you can make many poses with them and change there faces and outfits so you can really show emotions with them.
At the moment I don’t use photoshop on my photo’s but of course I do a little bit of adjustments with freeware for the extra touch. When I go for a walk, most of the time I just let nature inspire me and give me nice ideas for taking new shots and by doing this it lets me give them my personal touch. Sometimes I get the question why is an adult like me still “playing” with Lego? It is simple, because I just think it is great when that small Lego figure comes to life in my photo. It gives me a super feeling.
I hope you like my photo’s and I hope I can making a lot more while having a lot of fun with it.
