It's little known lore to the original meme.

level 3

I don’t know where to find it, but there is a whole series of stock photos that ends with the two women falling in love and dating each other. Honestly, it’s quite the emotional rollercoaster.

Please some internet deity, link to this timeless fable.

It's not a story the minifigs will tell you. The tale of Darth MegaBlock, the wise

level 6
LEGO Ideas Fan75 points · 8 days ago

I thought not. It's not a story Lego would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth MegaBlock was a Dark Lord of Play, so powerful and so wise he could use the Bricks to influence the builders to create life... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from melting. The dark side of Play is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was not fitting together properly, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice melted him in his sleep. It's ironic he could save others from death, but not himself.

Why do you have a piece of paper folded and on top of the camera?

level 3
Star Wars FanOriginal Poster122 points · 8 days ago

When I was shooting I had an off camera flash that is activated by the flash on the camera. Since I was so close to the legos I didn't want the flash to cause big reflection so I was using the paper to sort of bounce the camera flash to different directions to try to get the best lighting. I held the paper up with my hand while shooting, it wasn't sitting over the flash like that.

level 4

You're really dedicated to memeing, I like that.

Gotcha, this makes sense. The off camera flash being triggered by the camera flash fills in the blank for me.

level 4

Doesn't the trigger flash happen before the exposure though? I guess you'd probably know that just based on test shots.

level 4

Teach me, master!

level 5
Star Wars FanOriginal Poster3 points · 7 days ago

If you have any specific questions, i'll be glad to answer. I'll be honest though lego/macro photography isn't my forte. It's birds lol.

level 6

Nah, just a common appreciation saying.
I can't spend time on learning photography since, you know, my only "camera" is my HTC mobile...
I have a cousin who's a professional photographer, so I learned some touches from him, and he already congratulated me for things I did in the past, in terms of approach if not results.

But, yeah, one day maybe I'll buy a real camera, and start a new hobby.

level 7
Star Wars FanOriginal Poster2 points · 7 days ago

Shoot with your phone. Take some effort setting stuff up maybe it be people or toys. If you enjoy it a real camera will follow :).

level 8

I do enjoy, that's granted.
Once the kids grow up, and their "maintenance" changes, maybe the camera will come.

Note: This is my first Lego pic in like 5 years so the IG page is mainly bird photos.

So interesting! What made you put up that sideways photo of a bridge? Awesome work btw.

level 3
Star Wars FanOriginal Poster5 points · 8 days ago · edited 8 days ago

It's close to what I wanted from the out of focus section, and it was sitting there so I just used it. Looking back it's a bit too much brown and it takes away some separation from red girl.

Star Wars FanOriginal Poster85 points · 8 days ago

Thanks. I might take some more since this is being so well received. I usually only photograph birds but when I got the boyfriends head piece I decided to try bricklink some pieces to see if I could make a good attempt at recreating the famous meme in Lego. If I have any more good ideas I'll take some more Lego photos:)

level 3

If you’re open to suggestions i think “how do you do fellow kids?” Would be very funny

level 4
Star Wars FanOriginal Poster30 points · 8 days ago

I might try it. Seems easy enough with the right pieces. I like looking around bricklink for heads and unique parts so maybe this could be my next project. Thanks for the tip.

The butterfly meme is another good candidate.

Yeah I couldn't find a good enough head so I settled for this. Also the girlfriends hairpiece isn't perfect. But I think the boyfriend and the girl in red are pretty perfect for what Lego has to offer.

Star Wars FanOriginal Poster2 points · 7 days ago

Thanks for the tips. I didn't have many options with the gear I had to try different lenses. At first I tried a 50 and that was no good then I tried a 300 and that was worse. So I settled on the 18-55. I messed around quite a bit with the aperture and the distance of all the minifigs to try to make the bokeh as good as possible, but I'll agree there's room for improvement. I wasn't shooting on a tripod so I didn't have as much control over the bokeh as I would have liked. In the future I'll try to shoot stuff like this on a tripod.
