One of the ways my family copes with the chaos of the holidays is we escape them. Next week we are off on another travel adventure that will undoubtedly include some outdoor toy photography.
I have to start packing my Lego mini figures soon, but I don’t know which ones? Frankly I’m overwhelmed and a bit frazzled going into the holidays (I know, aren’t we all!), and I need some help choosing the subjects of the photos you will be seeing over the upcoming months.
I have more than a few mini figures so you can also think of this as a game of “Does she have…?” Please keep in mind I will be on sandy beaches, old lava flows of black sharp rocks and at least one volcano, plus the usual tropical vegetation; the possibilities are endless.
You can also think of this as a way to challenge me photographically. As you may have already noticed I have my favorite mini figs and accessories. By suggesting your favorite mini figure(s) you can help me to break out of my rut and try something new!
Any and all suggestions will be considered and if feasible, included. So what do you say, who should my travel buddies be?
Who are your favorite Lego mini figures to photograph?
If you where ship wrecked on a desert island, what mini figures would you want to have with you?
How about Dino Tracker…
Great suggestion! I really haven’t played with any of series 12, this would be a good time to explore the series. 😀
That’s a tricky choice ☺
I’m in a bit of a retro mood at the moment, and I love the primary colours of the classic spacemen. But how about swapping some heads around for a bit more of a diverse group?
Or possibly your favourite minifigs / heads but with seasonal or festive accessories and outfits?
Sometimes (like most of the time) I get lazy and don’t pay much attention to the faces. I should diversify this group a bit. I also have the galaxy squad guys and they have very different expressions if I want a more expressive group. It’s hard for me to know where to draw the line at modernizing the classics. But more customization is probably in order. 😀
Uhhh, I’d bring some Chima – they could use a little battle practice:)
Good point! I have packed about 12 various Chima characters. Prepare yourself my friend!
What about some Fabuland ?
I only have one, but I will include him and his cycle. He will be a nice change of place. 😀
Anyone from Atlantis series! Ostriches! I bet Gollum would feel very at home on the lava rocks too. 😉
Thanks for the suggestions. I think I have all of my Atlantis mini fix packed. I still need to unpack Smaug and a Bilbo! I think Gollum made it in. The lava rocks will make a good Mordor. I am also bringing a tripod and will try some long exposure this time. 😀
