The LEGO Company of Thorin Oakenshield

The Company of Thorin Oakenshield

“The Company of Thorin Oakenshield project is now finally completed.

Photographing this lot was interesting and deemed some DIY skills. I found some plywood plates from our garage and taped some black cardboard on it for the platform and then did the same thing for the backdrop. I used garden table for support and spend a couple hour in crispy late August weather. The wind caused the backdrop to fall about three times killing some of the dwarves – At least Dori and Fili exploded once. I rebuilt them, of course, but that was slightly irritating to say at least. The sunlight was another thing – I can’t take photos with direct light, and had to use big sheets of cardboard as a shade… But I overcome with those problems and here we are, with some group shots, shots of every “family” and even portraits of all the MOCs with black blackdrop. Now I’ll just wait for a convention to get these fellows on round!”
