Back in October I started a little Photo a Day challenge, which was only going to last a month. I had the idea of using Lego figures and a prompt list by FMSPhotoaday to create the series of photos. Having so much fun with the challenge it rolled over and over, now I have to admit this is a 365 project. In March I decided to change where I got my prompts from to shake up the project, but also because I wanted to have a monthly list of prompts instead of weekly. I after some surfing on the net I found a list of prompts by TheIdeaRoom and used them.
I have been asked, why do I use prompts? The reason is that they keep the project fresh and I can’t lose inspiration because someone is planning the theme of the picture. I will admit I sometimes think a bit outside the box when it comes to interpreting the themes.
All were photographed with a Canon G10 using a combination of on camera flash, natural light and lamps. 90% of editing took place in Lightroom, if Photoshop was used it was usually for combining exposures.
If you wish to follow the daily posts of this self imposed challenge you can on Instagram and you can see previous months here.

Everything is awesome 😉
Thank you, it is really still awesome.
Very cool, Ben!!
Thank you Amy, glad you like the pictures.
What a funny idea, Ben.
It is kind of light relief and fun. Thanks for commenting.
I always look forward to your lego photos. I really enjoy your interpretation of the prompts and your interesting, engaging compositions. My kids love looking at these blog posts too since they are lego nuts. They are going to be so jealous that you have that little black and white girl. They had been desperate to get her in a packet but never found her.
I have to admit Laura that there is a store in my city where for a premium you can buy individual minifigures already opened. She was purchased that way.
Really glad your boys like the pictures each month.
Thanks for taking the time to comment Laura.
Really? Wow! My kids would be in there all the time. They would have me selling my organs on the black market so they could buy every single lego minifigure.
I could image that, as I know there are some mini figures that all kids want. I think I have been quite lucky with the ones I have found.
Some great and fun photos there. Prompts are great to give direction.
Hi Raewyn, yeah the prompts really help me. I think without them I would get a bit lost and I would have stumbled a while ago.
I love these lego photos on Insta 😉😉
Andrea I am glad you like them, they seem to be a bit of a hit and I hope the project will not lose its steam.
