Where Is Anton

A must have iconic set.

When LEGO revealed the LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store on the first night of the RLFM days, we knew we had just laid our eyes on a most gorgeous, iconic set. A collector’s item in the making.
Most probably one of the best sets of 2017.
A toy photographers dream.
A must have. Continue reading “Where Is Anton”

Focus

Focus.

Across the Ninjago Madness of the last few days, one can easily loose focus. And that is what this month’s word is all about. Focus. A new month. And a new word in our series of words this year.

A definition.

So, what does focus actually means? According to Merry, focus is a point of convergence of a beam of particles. Ouch.
That did not really help.
A convergence of beans.

Gone Fishin

When Kim (the LEGO one) told us he sent us a box full of Ninjago Awesomeness to creatively review in the middle of our summer holidays, we were excited. The box full of new and unreleased minifigures would reach us only a few days before we returned from our Italian adventure, so with some luck we could score some great creative minds and get the reviews out just in time before the release on August 1st. And so we got in touch with you on Instagram and we got our models shipped out, but they seem to have gone fishin. Continue reading “Gone Fishin”

Holidays

Hāligdæg

The word holiday comes from the Old English word hāligdæg (hālig “holy” + dæg “day”). The word originally referred only to special religious days. Today it means any special day of rest or relaxation, as opposed to normal days away from work or school.

In Sweden, we just finished the Midsummer celebrations, and in the Northern hemisphere most people are looking forward to a smaller summer break, also called summer holidays. At least in the Commonwealth nations, while the US may just call it a vacation – although today is a holiday. Happy 4th July !).

A new month. A new word. A new challenge. And the first half of the year completed. Continue reading “Holidays”

Wonder Woman’s Lipstick

This month’s word is craftsmanship and the crew is having some great discussions behind the screen on where to take the craftsmanship.

Lipstick and the Healing Brush

When selecting this month’s word one of the influences came from Maelick comment or should I say “ask” in one of the social channels on how much you clean up your images, and I can tell you it is one of my basic skills I almost always apply. I use the lipstick to clean up the major flaws of LEGO prints, dust and the non-authentic scars of age. I do post correct, and I can tell you, the one single reason why I cannot abandon Adobe Photoshop for just Lightroom is the magic properties of the Healing Brush and it’s Hogwarts magical properties of healing. It is subtle, yet so amazingly powerful. Continue reading “Wonder Woman’s Lipstick”

Craftsmanship

craftsmanship
ˈkrɑːf(t)smənʃɪp/
noun, mastering the craft of the lightsaber 
the new word of this month

Not Battlestar Galactica.
No RMS Titanic.
No Enterprise NX-001.
No Death Star.
No Black Pearl.
Just a ship called Craft. Craftmanship.

There are plenty of discussion on the internet exploring if photography is an art or a craft, but we like to stay far away from that one (at least for today).

Two

Last month’s word was numbers.
From day one the number two was lingering in the back of my mind.
Zero and one. The binary system exists out of two very powerful elements.
Like Yin and Yang. Black and White. Yes and No.
Done or not done.
Very binary. Continue reading “Two”

Numbers

The 5th month of the year (read May) is halfway and we have not introduced our next word in this series of twelve. One could argue that it is all about priorities, and indeed we are juggling with a lot of different ones at the same time. Researching the upcoming RLFM days later this month (only 13 nights to go), getting a non plastic photoshoot finished (yes, some of us shoot other things as just plastic) and off course the day to day priorities of work and live balance we all have outside of our passion for plastic. There are only twenty four hours in a day, and seven of those in a week. And I did not shoot any plastic in the last fortnight. Continue reading “Numbers”

Remember

Remember our word of March?
Don’t worry if you forgot.
It was Projects.
Projects tend to have a deadline, and I talked about that one as well, especially since I missed that deadline. Now deadlines are nothing more as a line in the sand, a date to work to. Critical. But not the most important. What is even more important for a project is the actual deliverable.
The finished product.
The creative outcome.
The final image. Continue reading “Remember”
