Massive Millennium Falcon Escapes Tiny Death Star

"I hope the old man got the tractor beam out of commission."


I've seen some great uses of the new Death Star Planet piece, but the most obvious can be the best in the hands of an artist. I'm jealous of Blockaderunner's MOCs, of his collection and most importantly his mad photography skills. The perspective in this shot is perfect as is the lighting. For another example, the shot below is a composite of two pictures he took with the the background altered and displayed on his TV with the bikes in the foreground.

"Keep on that one, I'll take these two."

:O Wow. Ya, this guy has it dialed in just right.

Hopefully the Planet sets will inspire more space shots like these - love 'em.

I agree, these are awesome. For those with knowledge, how much of this is the user and how much is the camera?

I don't have a lot of camera knowledge, but I have seen a lot of crappy photos taken with very expensive photographic equipment (99.9% of my own photos).

A camera is just a tool. A good or smart user knows how to use the tool, exploit its capabilities. A better paint brush will make the job of painting easier, but it's not going to produce the Mona Lisa.

Yes, you have to have a competent camera, but most point-and-shoots, and smartphone camera applications allow you to tweak exposure and white balance, which help photographs immensely, but not as much as a tripod and good lighting.

This guy's good.
Rancors are neither cuddly, nor cute. But it's one heck of a riding experience!
