Ah, I wonder how he got elected… then again, I wonder that for a couple of real life politicians too.


Light sources

I am experimenting (amongst other things) with the lighting (again). I’m trying to get it a bit more natural and with some contrast in there. It’s not yet as I want it to be, the lighting itself is a bit flat in my opinion. But too bright is not right either.

What I’d really like is to work more and more with natural light-sources. Lamps in the set itself for example. I’ve been wanting this for a long time. However, there are a few problems.

The first problem is the lights itself. I would like to have small lights that can fit into Lego lamps and such  AND I would like these (LED-)lights to be dimmable AND to be easy to place  Oh and they aso shouldn’t be too pricy. My wishlist is long, but if I had to choose small and dimmable!

The second problem is the many reflections on mainly the heads. I often ‘play’ a little withe the location of the lights in order to get rid of reflections (they are annoying to postproces in Photoshop). And if I build the light into the sets they are not supposed to move that much. In combination with the relative blunt movement-capabilities of the minifigures that might cause problems.

I think brickstuff may be able to help out. I’ll contact them…
