Lighting Tests 2
About this creation
Phipson's beat takes him down by the docks and past the old warehouse. Sometimes, when the weather's chilly and the wind blows softly, he fancies he hears the ghosts of all the people he's used "Non-lethal" force on.



Just something I built last night in about 4 hours. I still need to figure out how to keep from getting flares from the lights on the left. It will eventually be used in one of my MOCs this summer.



Walking out onto the old pier to take in the view. Not that Phipson's much of the view-taking type.


And regretting his last stop at McDonalds. It was the probably the triple super-size fries and 96 oz. Coke that put it over the top.

Thanks for your post, I'm very flattered. As a very young AFOL, I am amazed how different generations can come together in a community over plastic bricks. I would definitely like to see what you've built, and will certainly visit your pages.

While on another's moc page I came across you - out of curiosity I had to stop by your pages. I was and am very glad I did. I felt COIMPELLED to write to you! As a retired teacher and someone who studied art for 6 years I worry about the next generation. I always ask myself will IMAGINATION and TALENT be around in the years to come? Your showing us your old work with the basic bricks and how you progressed to awesome sceens like this one answered my question - YES!, IMAGINATION is alive and well! Your photography is spectacular! I can't wait till I am done writing this so I can click on: ADD to my favorite builders...you earned it. Stop by and see my humble stuff! Another AFOL (61 years YOUNG)

Careful - around here "flare" is a four-letter word. But despite the F-bomb, this MOC's a real treat for the eyes. Great job on the lighting and mood. Looking forward to seeing what you're up to with all of this!

Quoting aabbee 150 wow that looks impressive may i ask where you got the lights
http://www.lifelites.com They're a bit expensive, but work excellently. All you'll ever need is the eLite Basic and some warm and bright white LEDs. In this MOC, I used the warm white LEDs for the floodlights and bright white for the lights above the warehouse door.

Awesome. The lighting on the docks sets for a dark and mysterious atmosphere.

This turned out quite well. The lighting sets a great mood for a dark and lonely dock.

Quoting Matt David These lights look stunning. I personally love the look of the flares because it seems more dynamic to me, but sometimes if you mess around with the white balance you can push them out of there.
Yeah, after Dennis pointed them out and I looked more closely at the flares, I started to like them better. They did turn out extremely well (for being completely accidental).

Quoting Dennis Price Don't be afraid to use that lens flaring to your advantage. It actually adds to the quality of the picture, at least in this case. After all, there's a reason they included a lens flare tool in Photoshop. I do like the look of the piece, and the lighting is superb.
Lens flares are very useful, and are great for cinematic effects, but I felt that they were over-saturated in this pic and blocked out some small details.
Quoting W. Mark If in some situations you disagree with Dennis about the flare, simply use a filter to dim the lights... translucent LEGO elements and sheets of paper are useful filters. The dimmer lights will diminish the flare significantly. The build and writeup here are great.
Paper would reduce it too drastically, but a clear stud between the light source and emission point could definately help dissipate some of the excess light. I'll try it a little later and upload the picture when I'm done.
Quoting El Barto ! Right out of an old Police Squad episode! Maybe Phipson can be the next Leslie Nielsen: "Police Squad: The Next Generation"?
Are you kidding? I'd rather not have to think of clever parodies and just steal Dennis's 'Blockocop' plot. ;)

Quoting Sebeus I Very nice, great lighting, I know what you mean, keeping Flare away is a major issue :p
I even went so far as to kill him once, and it didn't work. ;)
