When I picked security as a word to tackle this month, I thought it would be pretty easy to come up with an idea. However, as I delved deeper, and asked a few friends for their interpretations, I realised it wasn’t such a simple task.
So when I eventually came up with this shot I, felt it encompassed the word on different levels. Vader feels emotionally secure surrounded by friends, confident in his own abilities, but also physically safe and sound in his own bed.
Confidence… I am looking at a blank page with the word “Confidence” written in capital letters in a corner. And nothing comes to mind.
That was me a few days ago starting to think about this week’s picture: “confidence”.
“Creativity” seemed easier to me and with the rules I set myself for this project (more on that later in another blog post), I had difficulties to find a proper idea.
Looking at the whole list, I know that I will get this blank feeling again in the next weeks.
With The Last Jedi in full force in a theatre near you, it is time for us to share the last winners of twenty seventeen in our creative competitions.
Don’t worry, the Force will be with us in twenty eighteen, and a new challenge is just around the corner. But first, we need to take a look at all the awesomeness you threw at us with our latest creative toy photography challenge, #SiPgoesJedi.
The Council came together and looked at all the pictures, and had a very hard time to decide. So many fun entries and creative toy photography ahead of The Last Jedi. And before we head into the nominees and final winners of twenty seventeen, we want to thank every single one of you for joining in the fun. Continue reading “The Last Winner”
There are different ways to create an image. Sometimes it’s the ready photo we have in our mind, which requires only capturing by the camera. Sometimes it’s the general idea that we have to clothe in the shape.
And sometimes it’s a bunch of words.
Like in this case.
October is a wrap.
November is good and well underway.
So it is time to get creative again after our little art exhibition on Bricklive last week (thanks, Mark and the team for having us). What better way to get the creativity flowing, than with a simple photo challenge. A challenge that is not only great fun but may make you the lucky winner of an exclusive Millenium Falcon. Not the 7541 pieces big Millenium Falcon, but the exclusive Millenium Falcon which is hidden in the rare Escape The Slug set.
Talking about a trap.
What so many of you anticipated, rumored, guessed and hoped for, is now official. The Millennium Falcon™ has arrived (again) in its full glory and is now bigger than ever. Continue reading “She has arrived.”
In science fiction science is, well, fiction: the laws of physics can be put aside and substitute them with whatever fits the story. In Star Wars this means, among other things, spaceships with atmospheric flight dynamics in the vacuum of space. The X-wings fly like Spitfires, even the explosions spew flames and debris in the direction of airflow – which does not exist in space.
