How to take photos of LEGO® minifigures on vacation (plus, some of the best snaps)
The legs of a minifigure may be small and – dare we say it – fairly limited mobility-wise, but that hasn’t stopped them from traversing every corner of the planet.
Yup, Adult Fans of LEGO® (AFOLs) have been bringing minifigures on their travels for years, taking photos of them in weird and wonderful places. From the Eiffel Tower, the Leaning Tower of Pisa to more off-the-beaten-track destinations, these little guys have been pictured all around the world. They’ve even been to space, but that’s a story for another time...
We’ve gathered some of the coolest photos taken by fans who have mastered the art of snapping their minifigures on vacation.
And sure, it’s a bit of fun – but there’s a great level of skill that goes into achieving these charmingly adorable shots. If you’re passionate about travel and photography, and want to give this a go, or you’re looking for a fun activity to do with your kids, here are some top tips...
- Find a superb backdrop (be as imaginative as possible).
- Position your minifigure just right. It’s all about the proportions.
- Carefully consider the angle.
