First Day of the Little Lego Project πŸ™‚

These are my photographs of my first day of the little lego project.

For my first day I had to go out and about with my lego figures, and shoot a range of different scenes of my lego figure ‘living in the big Β world’. I was informed that we had to use scale factor and perspective. I feel that although this was my first attempt of the set project, that I picked up on the idea quite fast and I feel this has helped me throughout the unit of this project.

The Rebel Twin’s…

For this my theme was to create the impression of two rebellious ‘twins’. I thought that I could give this impression by creating separate scenes that represent the Lego figures being mischievous.

I also tried to enhance this idea through the edit scheme I created. I have stuck to given the several pictures below, high contrast, dark shadowing, vignette surrounding the figures, and also low ambiance.

The Little photographer πŸ“·

This section Is mainly representing the lego figure that I have included in several different section and themed photographs, That I have placed in images to give the impression the the lego figure is actually taking the image. So this section, Is just including them several range of photos that the ‘Little photographer’ has taken.

The Little Wedding πŸ‘°Β 

My theme here is to display scenes of a ‘Little Wedding’.

I have tried to portray this theme by taken various photo shots of a typical wedding. I researched a little to get ideas of particular poses, photo edits, etc. I noticed that in many wedding photographs, the main pictures obviously are of the Man & Wife posing with one another, many of which are usually of the couple stood in front of the venue, whether this is usually a church,castle, manor home and so on. So I did try to link the surroundings to match and represent the theme.

I then also after taken several photographs Β and using what I had noticed in many actual wedding photographs, then went onto editing the images in a certain way. I heightened the brightness, and enchanted the highlights, due to the fact that most wedding photographs are bright, and gentle-looking to obviously represent a happy atmosphere. I also soften their faces, to again give the simple,elegant and gentle look to which a wedding couple have.Β 

 

I personally Like this picture, Due to its effective elegant approach. I feel that not only with the selected pose I placed both the figures in but also the overall edit, really gave it the wedding effect feel, due to its soft approach. I achieved this by using high brightness, soft structure and a good highlight to the image. although I would improve this image, by maybe picking a less intimidating and fierce-looking Lego figure to be the ‘bride’.

 

I again particularly like this photograph due to its brightness,softness on structure and so on, but also again for the pose, I looked into typical wedding poses and there’s often a fully focused image on just the bride and groom. So I feel this image is really effective for this exact reason.Β 

I like this picture for the subtlety of the photograph. I lie the fact the obviously it’s staged, but this image doesn’t actually look as if it would be staged, as it contains the ‘photographer’ and looks as if they are about to kiss. Which i feel is what gives this picture its effectiveness.

This image I like, again due to the posing and edited effect I have included to the photograph. I feel that the edit and the pose is effective and I feel does draw the viewer to look at the image.Although I do feel that If i did get lower on the ground I could have got a better perspective which would give the impression that they would be much larger than they are.

This is one of my personal favourite images from this particular section and theme. as I feel it’s both angling and perspective but also edit all comes it to one to really give a good effective outcome. I like the angle and perspective that I have taken this image at, because although I have purposely blurred the background and focused on the Lego figures particular, You can still notice the background of the court-house, Which almost looks in scale to the Lego figures themselves. I then also really like the soft structure and bright,elegant and gentle outlook the image edit provides. I do feel though again to improve the photograph the ‘bride’ could look less aggressive.

 

 

The one thing I would say as an overall factor, is that to improve all the images I would next time get a Lego figure who was already themed as a bride, other than making a homemade dress out of, rizzlas,foil, cellotapeΒ and a gem….

Circus 🎠

The theme I was going for with this certain section of the project, was to portray the idea that the Lego figure (who is themed as a circus ring master.) was to be seen as “training” the chicken. I feel that overall this idea went well, but I will soon be adding some extra images to really capture the Circus master theme.

I like this image because I like the impression that the photograph is giving of. To me the photograph is suggesting that the Circus Master (e.g. The Lego man.) is scared and that the ‘chicken’ is in control, leaving the Lego man looking nervous and fearful. Although I figure to improve this image It would look better with maybe some background props to be able to really have a strong understanding from an outsiders view of the particular theme. I also feel to further improve this image, that the specific saturation and brightness of the ‘chicken’ could be heightened, to make the chicken really stand out.


I like this image again to the theme that is being given, that the Lego man/ Circus master. is trying to train the ‘chicken’, I feel that with the use of the high saturation and brightness and also the slightly higher ambiance really gives it that nice brightness to it, that I feel captures the viewer’s eye. Although  to further improve my photograph image, I think it would benefit better with again props being added, and maybe also an advertisement of a circus sign in the background to give it a stronger recognition of its theme and to also give it a little extra. 

 

I like this image overall due to its approach of the impression that the Lego man is smiling, and the fact the ‘chicken’ has been placed directly beside him. This personally gives me the feeling  of the ending of a ‘show’. I think this is due to the expression on the Lego mans face and the way the lego man and the ‘chicken’ are both placed. Although I would further improve this image by having a higher focus on to the lego man and the prop of the chicken, to really emphasise that their the focus of the photograph. I also think I use a vignette effect, which I would then  give of a darker outer brightness and intensify the inner brightness.

The Little Fashion Worker πŸ‘—

For this mini task that I set for myself, I decided to create a ‘fashion studio’.

I had this idea from searching around my home for ideas and a looking for a different range of different props that I may be able to use. I noticed that I had  black metal mannequin as a little dressing table accessory. 

From this I had the idea of setting some scenes with the  objective of trying to successfully portray a fashion studio look. I also kept in mind different scale and perspectives that I should use.  

I first off all started off with searching for small- to -meadium box, that I could then set my scene up in.

After finding the outer layer (the box.) I then had the idea that I should (in order to achieve a recognisable theme) decorate the box with different images and outlays to really portray that sense that it is a fashion studio.

I started of by printing a simple wallpaper, a hardwood dark floor (to easily match the wallpaper) and also a clothes rack for the background corner.

(Also to be added the background images, such as the wallpaper , floor and clothes rack aren’t my own images.)

After I had finished decorating the box to, I feel succefully achieving the sense of a fashion studio outlook. Went on to setting up my mannequin and Lego figure.

I placed the mannequin specifically in the pot it’s stood, this was because I felt that from an angled views I am still also able to caputure the background images.

Fashion figure Lego Photography

I like this image due to the objective being met in the sense of scale. I feel that although the figure still looks small in height. He fit wells to the images outcome. I also like this image due to its fast saturation and brightness. Although I feel to further improve this image I would consentrate in checking wether my camera is fully focused correctly.

I simply like this picture just due to its angled view. I feel that viewing these objects that sent to much of a healthy difference to one another, and capturing the scene from a birds eyed view, I feel is rather effective. I will say I would I would again want to make sure I really capture at the right time when the figure is clearly being focused on.

This photo again shows that sense of perspective, of making the Lego figure look almost the same height as something which is actually taller than its self. I particularly like the extra focus on the Lego figure and then it’s blurred background in this image. I feel the picture has a sense of boldness to it due to that again extra focus on the Lego figure it’s self.
