As I’m decluttering my desk again, I realize I still have quite a backlog of mail to share. I thought I’d start with some fun shots.
Swap-bot Tynkerbelle and I enjoyed a few photo exchanges early spring. My favorite was “A Different Point of View,” a swap she coordinated. For this challenge, we had to photograph from the perspective of a Lego minifigure. Tinkerbelle sent three photos:
Here’s “Little Lego Man,” as she calls him, propped on a leaf photographing flowers.
Here’s another minifigure on a beach.
And again on a dinner date at Outback.
You can see more of Tynkerbelle’s work on her website, Captured Adventures.
This was a fun swap for my family. I had to borrow one of my little one’s minifigures and he was super-protective of it. I couldn’t leave with it and he had to supervise every effort. I have since purchased my own–the paleontologist in the top photo–and my son purchased many more for his own Lego purposes. Here are the photos we chose to send.
We were just warming up in this photo. “Blue” loved the purple weeds and just had to get a shot with them.
Then, with my hubby’s help, “Blue” and “Orange” joined forces to conquer “Big Rock.” Can they do it?
They’re going to make it!
The last shot we sent her is my favorite, probably because it’s black and white. Tynkerbelle noticed bunnies throughout the photo, and now it’s extra special to me. 😉 Can you see the bunnies?
This one wasn’t included in the exchange, but my son’s Spiderman minifigure came in handy for Spidey’s “selfie.”
Shooting from the perspective of a minifigure requires getting down low and getting close. For me these were easier to shoot with my iPhone and my son’s Canon point-and-shoot than with a Canon DSLR, but I’m still experimenting.
As you can see from the top photo, I found a smart-girl Lego minifigure to take on adventures. She now has a permanent spot in my camera bag. Tynk’s photos motivated me to get her a camera. If memory serves me well, I found a pack of five on eBay for $2 or $3.
