About this creation
It IS as space helmet after all. I couldn't help but throw it on somebody's head.

And to end, here's an unrelated bonus shot; a still life in Lego.

I too have a simple point & shoot, a Canon PowerShot, but I find I can get some pretty nice pictures from it. Anyways, like everyone's saying, beautiful work, smooth lighting and placement.

Quoting E.K.O . LOL, very nice idea! Where did you get the globe?
The globe is from the $12.99 Pirates of the Caribbean set 4191, "Captain's Cabin." If you remember "Sandy's helmet," the trans, globe-like space helmet element that came in set 3831, "Rocket Ride," the globe is that same piece, but molded in brown, and printed with continents.
Quoting Babism Pie Your photos are so beautiful. The lighting and the colors are just perfect!
Like I said before, I really don't do anything special. Our family has a cheap, compact camera that I use for my photography, and for the stylized photos like the ones in my post, I use minimal controlled lighting and a small tripod at times. White balance is a very important part to shooting photos. There are many different kinds of light, so making sure that your camera knows which kind of light to balance for can make or break a picture.
Quoting Steele Blade How did you get a lego violin piece????
Good question! The third-party Lego accessory store, Brickforge, carries a variety of minifig scale musical instruments. They sell for around one dollar a piece.
Quoting Grace Pointner hilarious Paul! Did you actually but water in that bottle?
Good observation! It's actually a little photography trick in that second picture to make you think it's water. The Lego bottles I have come with the printing of a boat on one side. By turning the bottle just so that the printing is away from the camera, the distorted print when viewed from the other side, simulates the water affect in that second picture.
Quoting Ian Spacek And I see you got the Lego bottle; is that from Pirates of the Caribbean? Once again, well done!
Yes. The bottles are from the same set as the globe. Thanks for your comment!
Quoting LEGO Lord Very ironic... my brothers made this same design and even called him "Globetrotter".
Creeeepy...
Quoting Christopher Baldacci I was planning to go to Target and get that set tomorrow! That is such an awesome globe peice. Did you just twist around those 'Ship(s) in a Bottle' or did you erase the ship emblem? The whole thing is really great. What do you do you post-production editing on, and how did the editing alter your original photos?
Good questions! For the first question, I did both. I erased the ship on one of the bottles, but as I mentioned in the reply above, I left one of the bottles untouched. As for the second question, I use Apple's iPhoto for my basic color correction, exposure adjustments, and edge blurring, but for more specific or major editing, I use a free program called "Gimp" which is, in essence, a free Photoshop. The canvas texture and the lens flare on the still life picture for instance, were added in Gimp.

Quoting Ian Spacek Wow!!! (as always) Man I wish I had all that cool lighting stuff and good camera equipment. The last picture is masterful. And the mini-fig itself is awesome! Where did you get the globe piece from? And I see you got the Lego bottle; is that from Pirates of the Caribbean? Once again, well done!
Haha! Thanks! The "cool lighting stuff and camera equipment" is a black t-shirt, a dinky AAA flashlight, a point and shoot digital camera, and heck of a lot of post production editing.

Very funny indeed! What a unique way to use the new POTC globe piece, and the still life is cool as well! I gotta say, while I like all your creations, your "classical/artsy" creations are my faves; they are truly one-of-a-kind!
