33 Of My Most Interesting Behind The Scenes Pics From My LEGO Photography

Everyone loves secrets, the reality behind a stunning picture. I love behind the scenes photos and videos as well. Now I can show you some tricks and interesting photos from the world of LEGO photography.

First of all, I would like to introduce myself. I started this LEGO photography – or I would say “Legography” – in June 2016. I am a big LEGO fan and I love creating stories with these little LEGO figurines. I always try to take realistic and dynamic photos with real scenery. And now, I would like to introduce a completely different universe. A miniature world of the LEGO.

This article is a selection from the last two years with the most interesting or funny “behind the scenes” photos and videos.

People always ask me what I am doing when I work on the street or in a public park.

I didn’t use photo manipulation (of course, the lightsabers are not real). I made indoor scenes or chose suitable places for them (for example – a park). I squirted water or blew smoke if it was necessary to capture beautiful photos.

The natural effects (like mud or smoke) are very complicated to make because you cannot calculate what will happen. I spent many hours with each of these pictures.

You will see pictures in pairs which will show you how the final capture is made. Although you won’t see it in the work photo, the smoke, mud, water and etc. are real. However, you can see all these elements in the work videos. I don’t have a professional studio so I have to make these situations with some tricks!

I hope you will like it!

You should pair up with a guy I know who’s job is to be a Lego master builder... LEGO literally pays him to play all day
