Lego MOC photography

This is supposed to be an educational vignette. Take a look at the later MOC photography in my Photostream. This is a depiction of the lighting setup used for most of the pictures. Since the setup is fairly inexpensive I thought that this might be useful for other builders as well. On top of that a vignette is a really good way of sharing this information.


(This pic is the first of three in a little series about my lighting setup)

    Great shot! Really instructive for the photo-home-studio-starter! Where do I order a mask like the one in the upper right corner?

    Awesome setup! One question - do you usually use photoshop to edit your background?
  • Larry Lars 4y

    Thanks again for all the comments.

    When I do edit I use photoshop and there's often minor things to fix. I try to have a background that don't need fixing though 'cause it can be time consuming.
    With the lighting and camera settings I use, the photos often need a touch from a Photoshop color filter. I get a warm reddish pic that look a bit too much "indoors home photo" for my taste.
  • Count Zeppelin97 4y

    Yes, fixing a background can be very time consuming :( Thanks!

    Brilliant! Gotta get my niece on of those :D
  • Shobrick 4y

    So cool !

    Dude, this is truly awesome. Where did you get the base piece for the camera tripod - the black ring with 3 legs?
  • Mariann Asanuma 3y

    The black ring is a standard steering wheel. The three legs are the small black lever parts taken out of their bases.
  • Zakshalak 2y

    Thats pretty detailed! Do you know the exact model of each of those cameras?
