Courtyard meeting

Brick photography - meeting in the courtyard

Willy and Amida meet in her forest courtyard, under the watchful eye. of Venator. I am very happy with this image, mainly because of all the characters from the first comic. We haven’t seen Venator for a long time and I really like the way he is included, watching over Amida. At some point in the future, I’ll have to bring you his story… including what happened between him and Strabo, and the origins of Hammie.

Another flash-experiment

What I also like is the colors within this image! I always struggle with producing a colorful, bright image. For some reason my images come out of postproduction being dark. This time around it worked and I suspect it had to do with a new way of lighting via flashes. What I also like is the way the continuous lights came out. I had to drag the shutter after flashing to get the to be seen in the photo. Again, something I will talk about in a future tutorial on flash photography and Lego photography. First i want to get the hang of it myself. I’m working on it! 😊

A man walks into a store… Who could it be? 😉
You’ll probably already know, but should you want to check…. here’s the answer!

Flash

I never used a flash in any of my work on this site. However, since the end of my sabbatical, I am looking to improve and learn, and using flash-lighting was one of my wishes. And voila; this is my first attempt! I’m fairly happy with it to be honest 😃. My first steps not the world of the strobist!

Willy took a stroll through the dark forest. Deep in thoughts. I hope he noticed the two foul looking creatures watching him.

brick photography - Monsters in the forest on a rainy night

The two monsters from the first episode have been wondering for some time. Sadly for them, the night before the comic started it was kind of a wet evening!

I am very excited about this photo because I finally figured out how to get real rain into my photos. I used to shop it in! For those interested in how to get some rain into toy-photography, I wrote a behind the scenes post!

I created this little scene for an online tip on lighting and storytelling over on Brickcentral. I’ll bring the extended versions of these tips to this site shortly.

brick photography - frankenstein goodmorning wakeup

Dwaas woke up this morning, full of creative inspiration. This can only mean one thing! He’s going t work on Foolish Bricks again after a one year sabbatical. August 13th; save the date; because on that day Foolish Bricks returns with the first episode of the third Foolish Bricks Comic. And in the weeks to come tutorials, behind-the-scenes-posts, toy-photography and more will be published.

I hope to welcome you all back again.

Cheers 🙂

Opening the secret door!

A recreation of Lego comic panel four of episode ten of the first Chapter. I did not need to build a new stage for this one because of the former recreation, but I did use a different angle.

A complete recreation of the first chapter would be a lot darker, it seems! Maybe the next one will be brighter...
