FourBricksTall goes VW Camper

As a LEGO minifig photographer, I knew going from shooting something four-bricks-tall to shooting the VW Camper was going to be a pretty different experience for me.

I switched out my prime macro to a mid telephoto zoom lens and relieved my bag of the tripod. Already everything was feeling lighter including my mood too, as I thought about all the locations I could shoot in that I had previously deemed inappropriate for my minifigs because of scale.

Quarterback

Fuzzball.

A quarterback (commonly abbreviated “QB”) is a position in American and Canadian football.

Time to be that quarterback.
Look at the last quarter, and kickstart the second half of the game this year.

It has been a jam-packed quarter. Continue reading “Quarterback”

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”
