Hello community!
Today i want to share with you my latest upload because i need your help.
As you can see, the poor cook has that...unsightly reflection on the face.
Have you experienced the same pain while lighting a scene?

This is a two light setup, on both sides. What can i use to reduce reflection?

Hello friends!
I want to share with you my last entry for this mont challenge. This is a relatively simple picture, the original plan was Vader playing a piano, but i don't have all the pieces to build it, so i placed this idea in the TODO drawer and i've put in his hands a classic guitar.
Then i have framed him in a close up, crop, black and white and here's the picture!
Maybe the light is too harsh...

Hello community!
I want to share with you this pic for this month contest.
I wanted to include a music sheet and i have generated some ideas, but this was the one i loved the most, an harvesting of musical notes.
I have also made some cutouts of the notes but are barely visible...but i know that are in the chests, so this is what matters!

The sheet is, of course, from the "Imperial march"...

Hello friends!
So, here's the result of the BtS that i've posted yesterday.
Is all in-camera. I've added just the bubbles and removed the support for the fish.
I have used a food coloring for the water, to make it more blue.
The ice was a major pain in the...in the "ice".
I have placed a small test tube with sand inside a container.
Then i've filled it with water, to create the hole.
The result was a test tube stucked in a massive block of ice.
After some hard work i've been able to remove the tube and i've placed the mini-iceberg in the water tank.
I've learned that for shoots like this, is better to try with less water for the ice block...

Hello community!
I'm sharing with you a BtS from a picture that i'm going to upload tomorrow...let's try this experiment and see the reactions, this is the first time that i show a BtS before the picture!
I must say that it was funny, it challenges me a LOT and the final result is not exactly what i had in mind but i like it.
For sure i've learned some things that i'm going to use next time!

Hello community!
Today i want to share with you a "no-minifig" LEGO picture.

It's a classic view of an italian beach during summertime, seen from an hypotethic drone.

I have built some little deckchairs and taken A LOT of pictures, due to the fact that i only have two umbrella...
A careful eye can spot some imperfections in the stud pattern, but at a first glance it does his dirty work!

I hope you enjoy this new point of view!!
Have a nice weekend!

Hello friends!
Today i want to share with you my first experiment with DUPLO.
I borrowed some figures from my daughter to represent one of the goals in my life: transmit to her my passion for toy photography.

There's a better way than use figures from ours collections?

Hello friends! I want to share with you my latest picture, with a different crop from the one i've published on IG, just because +Joseph Cowlishaw asked for it :-)
This picture is based on "suicide squad" movie's scene, when joker lay down in the middle of a circle made of weapons

Hello community!
I would be pleased by some feedback/suggestions on my latest picture.
Here you can find the picture and a BtS.
I've added something digitally, like the heavy rain, the reflections on the swords and the little water drops.
I think that maybe i could have spent extra time on those drops, making them less "digital".

What do you think about?

Hello community!
I would like to share with you my first picture after more than 40 days, thanks to the #tp_ninjago photo challenge.
I'm so happy to have finally found the time, harmony and creativity to shoot again.

This picture came naturally in my mind after i read about the challenge. I always loved Karate Kid, and i remember when, the first time that i've seen it, it was all about "look at my crane pose!" with my school friends. It excites me even now!!

So, after finding the right piece of wood, i took a shot with a minifig in the right pose (after multiple tries).

But we are talking about ninjago, so why don't make it a bit different?
Why don't make it...Garmadon!!! Four arms in crane pose!!!!
I love this picture!!!
