This is a LEGO model of the Nikon F3, considered by many to be the best film camera Nikon ever made. I was not very familiar with film photography until 2017, when I started a photography class at my high school. I had used digital cameras in the past but was intrigued by the process required for developing and printing images from film.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. On 20 July 1969 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong set their feet on the surface of the moon. And in 2019, many people have paid tribute to them in all sorts of ways. Hungarian photographer Lampert Benedek was one of these, and he did it in his recognizable fashion: with LEGO.
Lampert used the popular toy bricks to recreate the iconic photos of the Apollo 11 mission. He kindly shared his work with us, as well as some backstory. And since he used mainly practical effects, the BTS images are as fun as the finished ones.
Stranger Things has won the hearts of millions of viewers across the globe. Its aesthetic, story, atmosphere, and acting didn’t just create a tense and emotional journey, but they have also been an inspiration to artists. Lampert Benedek is a Hungarian toy photographer who was inspired by the popular TV show. So, he got a LEGO kit, some props, lights, and a camera and recreated some of the most exciting and spooky scenes from the show. Most of the photos were done entirely in-camera, and Lampert shared with DIYP how he did it.
You have seen (and maybe even ordered) a tiny LEGO Leica. It doesn’t take photos, but what if I told you that you can turn your working Sony mirrorless into a LEGO camera? Well, you won’t exactly use the tiny bricks, but this skin cover that makes your camera look like it was made out of LEGO.
Admit it, no matter how old you are, LEGO always brings out the inner kid in you. And this is why you’ll love this drone accessory. It’s simple, lightweight and lets you firmly attach your favorite LEGO figurine onto your drone. Perfect, I know!
We all know that LEGO bricks are the best toy ever. They’re so versatile that you can even build all sorts of photography gear with them. And now, Leica has launched a pair of LEGO Leica M camera sets that you can assemble just like any other LEGO toy.
Understanding exposure is vital if you want to make informed decisions about your photography. And specifically understanding the exposure triangle. The relationship between ISO, aperture and shutter speed. It’s a delicate balance that newer photographers can often struggle with. But let Aaron Nace guide you through it in these videos with a little assistance from Star Wars Lego.
If you’re new to photography, there can be many concepts that still seem overwhelming and confusing. In this video, Aaron Nace of Phlearn explains the basics of aperture to help you grasp the concept and see what the change of aperture does for your shots. But the fun part is: he uses Star Wars Lego (and even Master Yoda’s voice occasionally) to guide you through the theory. I think that it hardly gets more amusing than that.
This is going to be a winning combination for many photographers. Cameras and Lego (not Legos). This “Hasselblad 503CX Film Camera“, it may not surprise you to learn, is not actually a camera at all (yet). It’s a lego construction created by Lego user, helenfigures (we’ll just call her Helen from here).
Helen is attempting to convince Lego to turn this into an actual kit. She writes that she is a photographer and that the Hasselblad 503CX is on of her favourite cameras. The camera contains interior parts, just like the real thing, including a mirror so that you can actually see through the lens down the waist level finder.
If you run a photography business, then you know that photography skills alone aren’t enough for success. Good marketing is one of the important aspects of business, and automotive photographer Clint Davis has made a brilliant move promoting his work. He used Lego kits to create personalized promotional mailers for his clients. Clint invested a lot of time and creativity into this project, and the end result sure shows it!
