This week on the podcast, I finally had the opportunity to chat with one of my favorite LEGO photographers: Anna Bitanga, aka Four Bricks Tall!
The New BrickCentral
By now I’m sure you’ve heard the news that Anna has taken the reigns of BrickCentral, one of Instagram’s oldest and largest LEGO communities. Anna has exciting things planned for its future, which includes a rotating mod team, a new focus on the photographic process, and a forum.
In addition to discussing all of that exciting news, I asked Anna about her work as a portrait photographer in Brooklyn, the importance of understanding your gear, why she prefers custom characters over licensed properties, and much more.
Thanks to Anna for coming onto the show! Like many of my recent guests, she has been on my wishlist for quite some time. I’m glad that the timing ended up being serendipitous in the end. And thank you for listening! Make sure you’re following Anna’s work on Instagram, and keep up with all of the awesome things happening at BrickCentral on the new website/forum.
Kristina and I will be back next week for our Love diptych episode, and have actually extended the window for listener submissions! If you’re interested in trying out a love-themed diptych of your own, upload it to social media with the hashtag #tp_love and tag both myself (@thereeljames23) and Kristina (@kalexanderson) by Friday, March 8th.
