Lego Cinema

I recently decided to explore some creative “portrait” images with mini-models … also known as Legos. As a kid, I was obsessed with this particular brand of fun. My brother and I used to spend hours building entire Lego cities. It’s been a few years since I was a child, and since then the brand has grown to embrace cinematic themes like Star Wars, Marvel comics, and other large picture themes. I decided this past week to use some of these as a challenge to find new and interesting ways to creatively light some still scenes. Here are a few fun examples that I was able to cook up. (some of these legos didn’t survive the “special effects” used)

Jurassic Danger

Batman Scenes



Here is a behind-the-scenes look at how I set up this shoot with props and lighting:
