These are very nice pictures. I really like how all the backgrounds fit all the minifigs very well!

What do you use for light sources smokebelch?  I see there are some really good shadows, so I was wondering if it's all just natural sunlight or if you add some sources here and there.

Great pictures though, hope you don't mind me using one as a wallpaper. :thumbup:

Don't worry, your secret is safe with me!

An iPod touch... What a great find!
So you use only one light source? No flash, no desk lamp?

The effect on the backdrop is also great.
I guess I could use a colour gel with a ledlight torch and get a similar colour effect.

Will give it a try!

Thanks for sharing!

Yeah I only ever use one light source (the Ipod) for indoor shots no flash etc. The key thing is the long exposure time.
I would imagine you'd get a similar result with an ledtorch- good luck, let me know how you get on  :thumbup:

All my outdoor shots just use natural light- will mostly just take em on days when there is a good amount of sunlight, get the best results that way.
More than welcome to use them as wallpaper  :classic:

New Speeder Bike shot from today...

Done quite a lot of Scout Trooper shots recently (Lego ones as well as the Kubrick and Hasbro action figure).
Always been one of my favourite's out of all the imperial troops.
The weathers been nice as well so it helps for getting some good 'endoresque' looking shots  :classic:

Beautiful, as usual.  Do you take requests?  If so, could you try some shots with ewoks in trees?  I bet you could make them look gorgeous.

Thanks  :classic:
Alas I dont have any ewoks at the moment im afraid...
However If I get the Endor bunker set in the summer you can bet you'll be seeing some Ewok shots at some point though  :thumbup:

Bit off-topic again I know  :sceptic: - it does feature star wars lego torsos!- but thought id post it in here- quick new Ghostbusters shot   :classic:

:oh: AWESOME speeder bike and scout trooper shot :wub:
you have to get the bunker set this summer because then like Clone O'Patra said you could do ewoks in trees and imperials on the ground and Han Leia and Chewie with some Commandos fighting the imperials :wub:  :wub:  (assuming you have these figs :classic: )

Well, we know he has at least one Scout Trooper, as far as Imperials. Otherwise, those should be covered by the Endor Bunker, providing he gets it.

Couple of shots of the Episode III Clone Scout Troopers.
Someone asked earlier in the thread wether i had any pod racer shots (sorry didn't answer at the time)- To answer im a bit of an original trilogy fan and only own a couple of the prequel sets. I did get the turbo tank though, as it was a very cool vehicle and had the awesome clone scout trooper.
Took these a while ago and at the time didnt like em, was trying to do some speeder bike shots but it started to rain so couldnt get what i wanted, and id brought him along as well and took a few of him on an old crumbly tree/log.
Was just having a scout through my old shots and quite liked a couple so thought id post em up  :wink:

That was me that asked about the Podracers. I thought it looked like you were an OT fan, but it never hurts to ask.

Also, where did this Scout's Rifle come from? Brickarms, BrickForge, Little Arms Shop...?

The rifle's from Little Armory- as are all my minifig weapons. Did a big-ish order from them 3/4 years ago now, and so far have had enough to match up to all my figs since then  :classic:
