    "I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that" Although this is more Also sprach Zarathustra&Blue Danube moment

    [MOC] 2001 A Space Odyssey

    I'm unfamiliar with the point&shoots, so quickly checked dpreview for a description; that wasn't what I had in mind when I said decentish camera :)) The complete lack of aperture&expo control is unfortunately a no starter (at least for me). But you don't need to shell out a fortune for equipment; even some bridge cameras are pretty good. And if you don't have a problem with owning a SH, there are a lot of companies that sell refurbished equipment (thats how I bought my current camera; at 1/3rd of its original price); or buy one directly from fb marketplace/classified ad/etc. with personal pickup; to check the shutter count and condition. XD You should have stated that its for both of you. But perhaps thats not such a great idea; my previous camera that I bought was "ours"; and after we split, when she wanted it, she got half of it. Literally half of it. XD

    Thank you! It means a great deal to us too! There are some great tutorials on the net creating&using lightboxes; I'd only add that you need a sturdy tripod, the timer function to further reduce camera shake; and a decent-ish camera&lens is already good (I use a 10 year old Pentax with some cheap zoom, and a few 30-50 year old manual primes). Try not cranking up the ISO too much (it adds noise), set the aperture depending on the type of shot you want (f1.4 - 4 narrow field of depth, f8-11 everything is crisp), set the exposure time according to it (or use aperture priority, let your camera decide, so you don't have over/underexposed areas), and you're all set.

    Hi everyone! Our MOC was featured on Legos social media!

    [MOC] 2001 A Space Odyssey

    Thank you very much! We tried to stay as close to the source material as possible. I took the photos outside on the terrace; with a cloudy sky (so there was diffuse lighting). Usually I take my photos of MOCs this way; but if there aren't clouds, I put up a white sheet in the path of the sun, to achieve the diffuse light. But I'm in the process to set up a normal studio; for that I'll use three DIY softboxes and a desktop lightbox. There are a lot of online refences that can be used.

    Happy New Year everyone! Our last build of 2018 was the iconic scene from 2001 A Space Odyssey - from bone to space station. Hope you enjoy! The flickr album, with the rest of the photos:

    [MOC] Lego World of Warcraft

    Thank you! Yes, they are instantly recognizable (and very cool looking). Although this is a generic orc camp, we tried to create the buildings as close to the source as possible.

    Jabba's Palace Micro

  11. Hi everybody, We built this last year, but have forgotten to post it here. It's a pretty simple MOC of a Horde outpost being attacked by the Alliance. Hope you'll like it. Here is the link to the flickr album:

    Thank you! Thank you! Yeah, I should have organized differently the album; at the moment the more epic pics are at the end.
