The Brickset Photography Guild - Share Your LEGO Photography Here!

AdzbadboyAdzbadboy London, UKMember Posts: 2,625
I would like to introduce 'The Brickset Photography Guild.' We have MOC thread on this forum but I thought why not photograhy? This thread will allow Brickset members to share and showcase their LEGO related photography here, whether it be minifigures, official LEGO sets or scenarios.


Today I will start this thread with my newest photo:


"Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP!"

Spaceship Spaceship SPACESHIP

If you like this, can find all my other photography here:

I look forward to seeing plenty of impressive photography!

    I don't think I've seen it, nor was it intentional.

    Thanks, please do share yours photos as well.

    I'm loving the accidental lighting of this car. I had a Luxo lamp and a video light in just the right places. I have shopped it slightly.

    A shot I took several years ago when I had a lot of figures out to take inventory. I decided to put them all together and take a quick snapshot. I have a pretty bad camera, so I was surprised when it turned out so well with the lighting/angle. Probably one of my favorite shots I've taken due to the fact it encompasses so many themes/figures.

    That is fantastic. It did turn out well. Not mention the fact that you have a sizable collection of rare or exclusive minfigures. @samiam391

    LEGO Tools, no builder is complete without them!

    LEGO Tools

    Well I guess some individuals would also need the Sword of X-ACTO and a tube of Kragle, but those aren't LEGO :)

    @Adzbadboy Is that trans yellow stud neon? I've been looking for one forever, I keep getting neon green in the mail. For tools I always have my old dark grey brick separator and my green new brick separator, they both have good uses and it's always good to have two. ;)

    Nope, it's all fairly common colours.

    I have loads of these Brick Separators, I never got the older ones. This one sucks because it's a nightmare to remove two smaller plates, the Technic Axle get's in the way! I hope they redesign it soon. I heard the new and the old make a perfect pair :)

    The new and the old make a perfect pair. I have two 630-1 in green and around 14 630-3 because lego put them in a few sets these days. I prefer using the two together but if I had to pick one it would be the 630-3.

    @Gurooo 
    I really like the lighting effect you have in the background (e.g the Boxer and Gandalf).  Is that something you're actually doing with physical lighting, or is it a bit if software / post-processing electrickery?  
  • GuroooGurooo Member Posts: 268
    @BooTheMightyHamster No post-processing trickery, just shallow depth of field and some small lights hanging in the background. You need a lens with a low aperture number (sorry, at the moment I can't say that better in English). I have probably used aperture somewhere between 2.0-2.5, I guess. I have a Olympus camera and a 50mm macro lens.

    Reading a little about depth of field and bokeh will maybe explain this better. Macro photography is a lot of fun!

    Here I used double exposure (still not a lot of post-processing), one exposure with high aperture (perhaps the highest I can use, 22.0, not sure) to get the sharp light in the middle, and one exposure with aperture 2.0 to get the blurry effect around them.

    (The SpongeBob pic is actually also double exposure, and the color and light in the background is light painting, I've been thinking about making a video that shows that tecnique, but I am not at all sure I will ever get around to it...)

    ^I should add to that comment that I do double exposure in the camera, not afterwards. I don't know if that is a common feature for cameras, but my camera can do it.
  • BooTheMightyHamsterBooTheMightyHamster Northern edge of London, just before the dragons...Member Posts: 1,296
    Ok.  I think my macro only goes down to f2.8, but I'll have a play around.
    Thanks for the answer!
  • GuroooGurooo Member Posts: 268
    I think 2.8 will do the trick. I look forward to seeing the result here ;)

    Aperture isn't the only thing that affects depth of field, so no need to worry. Both using a longer focal length and getting closer to the subject will decrease depth of field. Using a larger format will, as well, but that's generally not an option.
