I have an attachment to a TMNT minifig that I lovingly call Ben, The Traveling Ninja. I take him everywhere I go and often take pics of him a la Legography style.
As you can see Ben has a pretty good time wherever he goes. Take a look at this next pic…
I didn’t have anywhere to set Ben down so I had to hold him to get the shot. Now of course this can be easily cropped but I’d rather have something that “holds” him and is much easier to crop out without cutting off the bottom half of his body.
Yesterday my hubby asked me if I wanted to go to the Minifigs, Bricks, and More store today in Denton. Bless his heart, it’s not really his “thing” but he indulges me and wanted to go with me so I could look for some minifigs and things that I have been wanting.
The store is located in Golden Triangle Mall and while it’s not super fancy they do have a lot of Lego pieces and individual mini figs for sale as well as complete sets.
Here are the parts that I bought to *hopefully* will help me get some better shots without my fingers taking up half the frame.
I also found this cutie and although she isn’t *quite* what I was looking for I’m sure she’ll come in handy for some great pics soon. I actually want something that looks like Sophia the First but Lego doesn’t make one soooooo……
I took the long clear thing and put the blue thing in one end. I’m sure in “Lego-speak” there’s a more technical term for it but yeah….I don’t know what it is.
The idea is that I’ll put Ben on top of this thing so that I can take shots and not have my fingers in the way.
Here’s my first attempt at taking a shot and I am already loving it! It’ll be much easier to crop out that small piece then crop away half of Ben because my fingers were in the way.
I know that I am not the only one that loves minifigs…..right?
Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa
