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.

LEGO Elves 2018 – The Water Turtle

Today is #ElvesDay

Last week I started to share on the blog my photos and opinion about the creatures from the new LEGO Elves sets. For this week’s #ElvesDay, we’re having a look at the Water Turtle.

The Water Turtle

The Turtle comes with set 41191 Naida & The Water Turtle Ambush.

Winter or summer, she’s simply amazing to photograph. With the Eagle, she’s my favorite. Besides that… Not much to say so I guess pictures will speak louder than words :-)

The ideal companion for a day at the beach.

Sharing the Adventures in The North of my Plastic Friends.

Fun

Awesome !

Every Sunday the Crew gathers together on the roof of The Studio™ and we discuss the week ahead, the one that has gone by, take a dip in the pool, grill some burgers and enjoy each other company.

Today we had a feature guest passing by for some fun and awesome pizza, beer and burgers.

Benny™  wanted to get all the gear out and extend the fun into the bubble pool, which we did.

We took some great snapshots, played with the strobes and had fun.

Among all the questions we ask ourselves here on SiP, we should not forget it is about having fun.

Exploring the awesome unknown.

Having fun.

Todays shoot is not gallery material and will not make it to the wall of an exclusive Stuck In Plastic collector, yet it was great fun with Benny™.

We enjoyed the moment and had some fun when shooting bubbles, regardless if they are considered art or just a snapshot of the moment (and the above pictures goes into my snapshot book).

This is what Stuck In Plastic all about.

From having Fun™ to Art™ collector material sticking high resolution full sized pictures to the wall of corporate board rooms and private bed rooms alike.

In the coming weeks we will take a deeper dive on why we are Stuck In Plastic and what we want to achieve together with you, but whatever road we take it is all about having fun, one way or the other while we take a deep dive into our artistic self.

An Homage – Michael Phelps – Gold Medal Summer Olympics 2004

The last few weeks we have had our fair share of posts here on Stuck In Plastic looking for the why.

A most interesting question and I really enjoyed reading back from Balakov over Avanaut to East Mountain and beyond, including the fantastic positioning of Padawans and Jedi alike by Shelly.

One thing all posts have in common is a love for the métier. 

A passion for telling stories, painting with light and taking it beyond the instant snapshot of images that are flooding our retina devices continuously.

When I returned from a full week in the catacombs of Big Inc, another picture was crossing my retina on the flight back in. A picture I saw a few weeks ago when I was enjoying a video interview on one of those intergalactic flights back and forth.

A picture that forced me to take a deep dive into the pool this weekend and get beyond my comfort zone and get wet.

A refreshing experience, and for sure I felt it was worth doing

Now, would I stick these Speedo’s to the wall ?

Not sure, but we did have great fun …

And here is an extra Speedo shot of Julien for the other half of Stuck In Plastic as it is Shelly Birthday week and Shelly has a special relation with water …

Happy Birthday, Shelly !
