Topic: My photography skillz

well, lately I have found out that I love to take stills of minifigs, and I started with my vintage minifigs to show how cool they are. Here are some pics.

WARNING! MAY BECOME MY AVATAR!

Re: My photography skillz

That space one has awesome lighting.

Re: My photography skillz

thanks x2. The firefighter was actually hardest to make though. I had a string of red, yellow, and green LEDs, and I needed to rubber band the greens out of the way. To get the lighting on his face right, I had a flashlight face down over bricks so very little light escaped for his face, but it worked! mini/lol

p.s. notice the LEDs in all of them... mini/mrgreen

Re: My photography skillz

Im not spamming I was just saying I liked the spaceman picture and I added napoleon with his famous quote to jazz up the post.

Anyway now that im thinking about it, what piece or what is that door part that the lights are coming out of?

Re: My photography skillz

it's an old doorway from the old LEGO life on Mars big set. Yes, the one with the tubes.

uh, oh! I don't know what to do for the gas station clerk. I was considering making him a mechanic, but my designs were too complex.

Re: My photography skillz

They're pretty cool but could go into the prop and set critique thread.

Re: My photography skillz

I love the space one, and the fugitive.

Re: My photography skillz

They are all very nice, and as said above the space one was great, but as an advise; I'd not take photos that close. try to either:

1. go further away from the fig and zoom in,

Or

2. Try to just take a bigger picture and select one part of it.

I said this because it's nearly impossible to have a good focus so close to an object and those photographs would be even better if you hav more focus on the minifigs' heads mini/smile

EDIT: The first two had good focus, I was talking about the two last ones mini/wink

Re: My photography skillz

In the third one, I bumped the camera while it was being taken, and in the forth one, before I changed the exposure it looked perfect.
anyway, these are the raw images straight from my camera. I have cropped/resized versions, and they look very good.
