"Get the Manager!"
When Nannan loses one of his creatures...
About this creation
Originally, this was a step into Alex Eylar style lighting, but my camera didn't like the darkness with a few spots of light and they didn't turn out...so I got my lamp and took pictures like I know how to make it a MOC. Nevertheless, this is still an experiment all around.






Most pictures you will see have NOT been tampered with in Photoshop lighting-wise, because if I do what I normally do they turn out blue. (Like this one and the main pic) Feel free to tell me your opinion on the blueish pictures.





In this picture you can see the majority of my Shannon Young style interior
with a Keith Goldman dose of grills and plenty of Mark Kelso's favorite SHIP ingredient: Smooth Tiles. If only it was as detailed as those examples...






In the grid pictures you can find the picture above in blueish light, and a few other shots of random assortment. Kinda like those boxes of chocolate that you can find everywhere some time in February.





---------------------------------------

And now, three pictures of my failed(?) attempts to match Alex's work.







1. This would have been my main picture...




2. Good shot of the monster in focus...




3. And another random picture.



How'd I do? Remember it was an experiment, it was an experiment...









My set-up when I was taking the bright pictures...





My set-up when I was taking the dark pictures...















Here's proof that my camera CAN take good pictures! =)





So, that was my first posted experiment on the pages. It's not much - and the only good picture is the main pic - but it was fun doing it. Thanks for looking!

I think that the blue light makes it look more like an industrial sort of mechanical room... Or maybe that was the orange outfits?

on two of the pics you can see some of the other things

It's particularly amusing to see a fellow MOCer with a table lamp like mine and beside while photographing - exactly the same way I do it, right down to the accompanying iPod! Your careful attention to lighting and focus really enhances this MOC, which is already fantastic in and of itself. Thanks for your comment back in June by the way!

Quoting Joshua Benjamin: In that one picture, did you honestly take a picture with one camera while holding another camera in your other hand?
Yup! I'm good, aren't I? =) No, it was actually my brother trying out some stuff on his new camera.

this is excellent. I prefer the blue photos to the others, because they infact look like they have been photoshopped to look red. good interior, it would be great to see a whole building in that style, possibly with more of those creatures attacking the workers. definitely a great creation.

Thats very nice. I like the idea and love the smooth floor. Ive always wanted to have smoth floors but dont have the pieces. BTW, if you want to join my group you need to let me know of 1 to 3 lego creations, and Ill judge them, like the groups main page says.

Interesting to see how other people make their pictures. I don't have to worry about camera issues, my friend takes the pictures with his expensive camera ;). ~M

Terrific job, JD! With the overall scene you've got great value contrasts going on (which I think is important when working without lots of color). Love the studless look, and you've got just enough things lying about (or hanging...chains) to break up the visual boxyness that can come from a no-studs build. Lighting - I like the main pic, but my fav is the one you said you would've used...more dramatic. Keep messing with lighting, and don't forget that the color of lighting can create mood. Anyway, terrific work! Keep experimenting!

You don't need a manager- just a handy-dandy shotgun.

In all honesty, I thought "Oh look, another Young comedy." I was wrong. It's really interesting to see people advance in their expertise. Though I think the blue thing is noticeable, its not much of a fault. Good day

Great job. The interior is much more detailed than anything that I've ever done. Also, I agree with Shannon, the lighting in numbers one and three worked very well.

Great looking interior space, and as far as the lighting experiment goes, numbers one and three look pretty good. The light may not be falling QUITE right, but if you keep experimenting I have no doubt you'll soon have that mastered as well. You're getting too good, kid.

Yeah - lighting or not, that's a solid build. You did good work there. As far as the lighting goes, that first picture is spot on! ~dave

Photo number 2. (good shot of the monster in focus) is very nice, in my humble oppinion. As Keith said, good, solid photography :)

Very nice, the build is cool, and the pictures with different lighting DID turn out pretty good, The spider is neat too.

Pretty good test. I like the first dark pic. Kind of moody. From looking at your set up it looks like you need more openings and a stronger light to shine through the holes. Get a little Halogen for spot work. Then also think about why the light is that way. What's blocking it. Anyway it sucks to be the manager that day, huh. see ya. garth

I say the lighting and photography both make the cut just fine. It's nothing fancy, but I'm all for that. Good work JD; let's just hope the manager isn't on lunch break!

One of my favorite from you ! I like this kind of bases, nice build, and the Nannan creature is a funny idea. Cool !

Oh, I forgot to mention that this is one of those MOCs that you only show one picture: the main pic. That's why there's not much detail in the rest of the MOC compared to that corner. But, as this is an experiment, I showed you the rest of it. =)
