What I learned from the classic car project

When I learned that we would be doing another project with TLG (read The LEGO Group), I was ecstatic like every time. I find it interesting to work for someone else from time to time. It’s often challenging since you don’t want to disappoint the client and you can always learn something from it.

Respectfully for the client (here, TLG), we refrained to talk about it or to share with you pictures or BTS before they started publishing our work, even though we allowed ourselves (read Stuck In Plastic and the crew) some teasing about the project.

But now that the cat car is out of the bag, let me share with you my experience.

This article is part on a new series on the blog. Every Wednesday, one of the creative who participated to this project will share some behind the scenes with you.

Looking back in the past

Today I was looking at my pictures from our latest toy safari in Paris wondering: “What can I write on the blog? Do I already have the white page syndrome?!”.

And I came across this picture, taken near the Louvre, on the « Colonnes de Buren », from the famous French artist Daniel Buren. Continue reading “Looking back in the past”

One year ago today- and what happened along the way

Time went by quickly

I know this is cheesy, but it seems to me the older I get, the faster time goes by. Right now it feels like it’s rushing by at the speed of light.

This morning Ian sent me some pictures from exactly one year ago and simply asked: Can you believe it? Honestly, I hardly can. One year ago we met in Edinburgh, Scotland for our annual toy photo safari. Looking back it was a short yet fantastic weekend meeting old and new friends, driving to the Highlands, playing amongst waterfalls and climbing hills and monuments. But that was only one year ago??

Using a Lume Cube for Filling shadows with artificial lights in outdoor toy photography

Our good friends at Lume Cube provided us with some light.  Here is our view on how you could use it to improve your pictures.
They are also organizing a toy photography contest. Go at the end of this article to get more info about it.

I have to admit that I never used artificial lights during daytime, mostly because of laziness. I discarded photos more than once because the subject was too dark compared to the background. During our little Adventure in Paris, Julien gave us four Lume Cubes we received for review.

When I got mine I wasn’t sure what I would do with it. Continue reading “Using a Lume Cube for Filling shadows with artificial lights in outdoor toy photography”

Exploring the Inner Child in Paris

I’ve talked a few days ago about the Inner Child and how it became my goal after our toy safari in Paris. It’s already been more than two months but… In this blog post, I wanted to share a few moments of that weekend that were all about exploring our Inner Child in Paris.

SiPgoes52 and the Inner Child

The Inner Child

We’re more than halfway through the year and it’s been time for me to reflect on the past months. It was particularly urgent to do so as I haven’t really analyzed where I’ve been and where I’m going since last December.

At that time, Boris chose Humanity as his last word of 2017. When he wrote about it, he mentioned that for the upcoming year he wanted to explore his inner child. I liked the idea immediately, but I never imagined that 6 months later, it would become one of my main goals too.

It took me 6 months, and a toy safari in Paris, to realize how important being aware of my inner child is to me. Continue reading “SiPgoes52 and the Inner Child”

Self-development during toy safari

It is so personal and yet I want to share it. My first safari was so magical and awesome, I couldn’t have imagined it better. The awesomeness took me by surprise. Although I read all the posts about past safaris and how amazing they were, I was still not prepared for the reality of it.

For the first time in my life seeing other people posing toys in front of a camera, talking about toys, talking about other toy photographers that I only follow on Instagram… It made everything that I only knew online so real. Continue reading “Self-development during toy safari”

Having fun with little pieces of plastic in Czech republic. So far, my dog haven’t eaten a single Lego piece. And I haven’t stepped on one.

SiP went Paris 2018

After several toy Safaris around Europe, in Stockholm, Hamburg, London or Edinburgh, it was time to visit Paris.
It was the second time for us to be in the City of lights, after an exhibition at Le6Brick earlier this year.

The edition of SiPgoesParis 2018 was awesome.
Everyone seems to have enjoyed this event:

20 people from 7 countries (Czech Republic, England, Finland, Germany, Sweden, Turkey and France),
around 50 km of walk during 3 full days,
hundreds of LEGO minifigures,
thousands of pictures taken,
and very little sleep…

But let me share with you a “10-minute” taste of what happened between June 15th and 17th.
Just follow the guide!

The famous monuments

A weekend in Paris means that some stopovers are unavoidable.
We started the weekend at the Eiffel tower. Even though we arrived relatively early to avoid tourists, it was not early enough and we quickly shared the spot with a few wedding photographers.

Out Walking

This weekend we have been hanging out in Paris with some awesome toy photographers and just did not find the time to post here on the blog. We have been very actively posting on IG, though … and here is a little teaser of all that awesomeness.

More to come soon …
