I searched and couldn't find a topic for this, and thought it was well needed.
So everybody can post any photography relating to LEGO pirates in this forum.


So here are some of my photos to start it off.  Mostly just some close ups.

So I hope many people use and enjoy this topic, as I know I have enjoyed these kinds of topics in other themes.

I added "No MOCs please" to the subtitle to be clear on this thread's intent.

Love the custom bicorne hat of the officer and the gray zombie-style head of the pirate captain! The new-style skull-and-crossbones on the pirate's head looks a little too cartoonish for me, though, but i guess it works with the bland undead expression on his face  :pir-classic:

I like your customs. The pirate hat may be a little cartoonish but it looks very professional :thumbup:
But I don't really see the point of this thread being a "lego photography" thread.
I mean, isn't the entire MOC forum there so we can share any photography relating to LEGO Pirates?

I get where you're coming from Croissant, but if you check out the Star Wars photography thread that this thread is based on, it's for more artistic shots using LEGO (mostly figs) as a photographic medium. I personally think it's a great idea. :)

I love all these LEGO Photography threads on the other boards. So to me it´s great that the Pirates forum now also has one.
Here is my first contribution

Isn't it the Anakin Skywalker head? :pirate_skel1:

As Zuloo mentioned, there typically won't be any MOCs in these pics and they usually don't have to be custom figs either.  Primarily a photo of a fig with a cool background to show off our photo skills (from what i've seen in the similar threads in other forums).

I see what you are saying but this thread is more for pictures of figures only.  I mean it's not restricted to that, but it has been a big hit in other sub-forums, particularily Star Wars.  The thread is half photography and half Pirate minifigures, smokebelch is a perect example of how a standard figure can practically look like art.  

I would advise anyone wanting to post a MOC to do so in the Pirate MOC forum, but single shots of Pirate minifigures fit perfectly in here since they don't really need a thread of their own.

Ah that's a good explanation. Now I understand.
Then I think it's a very good idea. I already see a few awesome pictures here, especially WampaStompa's :thumbup:

I decided to use a colored background for the first time, and I really like how it turned out.
Here are some POTC pictures I took.  Enjoy!

Nice pics yogi! Seeing as you have the Isla de Muerta set (I'm getting it tomorrow in the mail), I was wondering about the scabbard on the skeleton Barbossa. Is it looser than on the normal figs, or does it fit on well. I'm just worried that it will move around a lot on his shoulder.

Thanks.  It's actually very loose, which is somewhat of a dissapointment.  But I can live with it since it's a great part on regular figs.

Ya, I thought so. I tried an Indy sachel on one of my Ninjago skellies and it was quite loose. But, I'll probably end up not really using the skellie Barbossa, and use his scabbard for someone else. Can't wait for tomorrow!  :pir-cry_happy:
