  • Catching Up With Lego

    I’ve been “getting back into” Lego recently. I have always been a huge Lego fan since I was a kid. I still have a giant tub of Lego from when I was younger and I’ve been recently buying new sets and having a great time with it. I tend to gravitate towards building more interactive […]

  • Great Lego Gear Tutorial

    I came across an amazing Lego gear tutorial earlier today. While a lot of the information is familiar to me, it’s written in a very concise way that I think a lot of people will benefit from.

Not that long ago, I shot a time-lapse of a Lego 8294 Excavator build. It was a fun learning experience (the shoot), but […]

  • Lego Minifig Portraits

    Since winter won’t release its icy grip on New England, there’s no fun bugs and critters to take photos of. I was able to snap a bunch of frames at the random spider that apparently lives in the apartment, but I haven’t seen him since. I figure I gotta make some opportunities (and need to […]

  • legoness

    When not working, I’ve been spending a lot of time building lego sets and tooling around with a tank concept.
