PIC A DAY 060814: ECTO-1

I enjoy building things with LEGO, and love all the sets the put out. Today I sat down with the Ecto-1 set (#21108) that was suggested by a LEGO building and made its way into production. This means I also had a chance to pull out the camera to take some shots.

I love using the Kenko Extension Tubes that I’ve reviewed previously, as they allow me to get really close to the subject. Unfortunately, the tubes also create an extremely shallow depth of field, even with the aperture wide open.  Still, some great image can be captured like today’s entry.

Only mild color correction on this piece – Curves and Levels adjustment, as well as cropping out the unwanted stuffs.

Still working on lighting here.

Stephen Schleicher

Stephen Schleicher is one of those guys that has always loved comics but never got into them until really late in life - like high school in the 80s. He just missed the Crisis on Infinite Earths, but has been around for every major crossover since. Stephen knows his way around video and film production having been a director, producer, editor, and motion graphics artist for projects ranging from small promotional pieces for Wachovia all the way up to regional videos for the Division of Emergency Management. As a prolific writer, Stephen began his career writing for the Digital Media Online community of sites, including Digital Producer and Creative Mac covering all aspects of the digital content creation industry. He then moved on to consumer technology, and began the Coolness Roundup podcast. A writing fool, Stephen also freelances for the Sci-Fi Channel's Technology Blog. When not writing, Stephen shares his knowledge as a tenured faculty member at Fort Hays State University. Still longing for the good ol' days, Stephen launched Major Spoilers in July 2006, because he is a glutton for punishment.
