HispaBrick Twenty Nine

Fitness

Fitness may be the word of the week in our fantastic #SiPgoes52 challenge and I´ll be the last to say that sports are no good. Still some time out in between exercises is good, too.

Time we knew how to spend well when our friends from HispaBrick magazine kindly asked us whether we wanted to contribute to their brand new issue with a little article.  We´re specially happy to  be on board as in 2018 their team are having their ten years anniversary!! Congratulations from all of us!!

Anton Among The Waves

An Awesome Lake

My original idea for the Where is Anton contest was to go to the mountains and find an awesome lake. Maybe even take the lakeside lodge set I recently built and work that into the picture.  However, because of the crazy weather lately and the limited time, I instead resorted to something I could capture at home.

I believe I can fly…

Last month was the Paris Air Show.
You may have read my article on the subject. It was a great experience. I had so much fun taking pictures with LEGO minifigures in the middle of airplanes.

And because last month’s word was craftsmanship, I thought it would be a good idea to take one of those picture and describe the crafts I used to achieve the initial vision. Let me drive fly you through the whole process Continue reading “I believe I can fly…”

Leveling Up With LEGO

Shooting LEGO minifigs is like a game for me, a quest to improve my photography. I invent personas for these iconic plastic toys, build MOCs for them and create worlds around them. With each photo, I rack up experience points, trying to level up my photography. With each new level achieved, I unlock a new skill: shot setups get more creative, shooting becomes more intuitive, editing goes faster. It’s a fun game, this open-ended free roam game of LEGO photography, and I intend to become a powerful wizard. Continue reading “Leveling Up With LEGO”

Outdoor toy photography with intention

I like to create photos like some people like to cook – a little of this, a dash of that, stir the pot and then see what comes out of the oven. While outdoor toy photography definitely has a chance effect about it, similar to experimenting in the kitchen, that doesn’t mean that outdoor photographers, like myself, aren’t crafting our photos with the same attention to detail as all  photographers.

A Nik of Action …

I have to admit I have been busy lately. Stuck in the dungeons of big Inc. with not much time to take a plastic break and get the camera out of the bag to get some creative shooting done. You know the feeling.  So, I was happily surprised when Maximilian gave me a call earlier this week and asked me to join him on the annual classic spring fire drill and get some pictures for the local fire department magazine.

Reflectors and how to use them with toys

Every outdoor photographer should have a reflector in their kit and know how to use it while shooting their toys. Why? Because when you shoot outdoors, you only have one light source – the sun, and it’s rarely where you need it. When you add a reflector to your kit you can achieve even lighting on your toy, fill in those deep shadows and eliminate that shiny plastic line so often seen in toy photography. Continue reading “Reflectors and how to use them with toys”

A little challenge

Last Sunday I tried to shoot Mikes Outdoor Lightening challenge and I failed miserable at it. After a full week of travelling for Darth Inc. I found myself in the Studio with a cup of coffee, the same little challenge in front of me and the will to succeed this time. Continue reading “A little challenge”
