THE KING IS HERE



© 2015 Hasif Rahman - Classic King | Minifigure Series 13


" Hold your ground, hold your ground! Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you *stand, Men of the West! "

THE MINIFIGURE SERIES LEGO - NEW EXPENSIVE HOBBY OF MINE

The fly at the Storm Trooper head - I didn't noticed it till I edit it in Photoshop. Haha

The last day I played with Lego was like 20 years ago. I can still remember I owned a Lego City and a Spaceship. Can't really tell exactly whats the real name, but thats what I owned. Years after, it's all gone. I'm not that Lego Fans during that days, I bought it just for fun. There's no feeling of what I want to do with all the Lego's someday.

Currently at the age of 29 years old, the mood, the joy, and the excitement towards the lego rise again. Combining the Lego and my photography, it doubles the joy ! If you're a Lego fans, surely you'll know about the Minifigure Series. It comes in a small packet at around RM13.00 price. Every series comes with 16 Minifigure Lego with different character. Every Lego fans will surely wants to collect each of them for every series. You'll be like, that's easy, just go and buy it, but thats the problem. You'll never know whats in the packet because it's sealed and can't be seen. You may bought the same character when you buy two packets, or not. The other problem is, few of the character is hard to find.

For example, the Bunny Suit Man Minifigure Lego in Series 7, its kinda rare and hard to find. You bought it at RM13.00, if you're lucky to get it, but people sold it at RM200.00. A hobby that can make a lot of money if you know how to do it. Starting to collect at Series 13, the heart kinda feel like, I'm too late is it? How I'm gonna to start to collect from the Series 1. Lucky, I managed to find the shop that selling the minifigures from Series 1. The usual minifigure will be like RM30 to RM50, but the rare ones will be above RM150.

For now, I'm not collecting it for business purpose. I'm collecting it as a hobby and using it for my photography purposes. But surely, I'm gonna keep it in a box because who knows, someday in a future, a really die hard fans of Lego will buy it at a really high price? Like stamps, old coin, classic item and etc. Ya, money will be splash, I think thousands,,,haha but not that in a month. I'll start collecting it slowly. Lets start to get all 16 in Series 13, and later will start collecting the previous series.

Later I'll show you one of my favorite  Minifigure in Series 13 - the Hot Dog Guy. I've own three for the Series 13 for now, the Fencer, the Lady Cyclops and The Hot Dog Guy.

THE WIND OF CHANGE OF STYLE


© 2015 Hasif Rahman - When People Ask | Here It Goes


" Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions. "

- Albert Einstein -


Some of you may have noticed the change of style in my recent photos especially my silent reader. Yes, I'm into toys, especially bricks and I love it ! There's nothing better than spending your time with things that you love to do. Even it's hard to start, from searching the bricks that you want, the money that you spend, set preparations, knowledge that you seek and the mistakes that you've done, it will end up, you're happy with it once you succeed and get better. It's because you love to do it.

There are a lot of things that contribute to the Wind Of Change of style in my recent photos. To name a few ; Time and Family. To say that I didn't miss the good old time days will be a big lie. Model Photo shoot will always be the adrenaline in my Photography World. But once you're in a serious relationship, getting married, with my angel Audrey Marissa born on 27th June 2015, and photography as partime freelance, time is my enemy. I don't have that "time to enjoy" like I use to be, spending time at Mamak Restaurant for TT Session, join photo shoot event made by friends, spend the weekend for Wedding Photography and a lot more. It's a bit of frustration at first. I have my own dreams in my Photography World. I wanted to have my own studio, my own gallery, my own portfolio, and somehow for people to recognize my arts. What's the point if I have my own studio but I don't have the time to take photos, how I'm gonna have my own gallery and portfolio if I don't have the photos and surely, how I'm gonna made people to recognize my arts?

I spend days to think and one day, I saw a friend of mine, post a photo of Nobita Action Figure while travelling, I was like, that's an interesting to do with photography. That's how I started to change. I googl about toy photography. I can't denied it, at first when I google about toy photography, I'm kinda feeling bored about it immediately. The photos kinda, not that "alive". Its too..static. Till somehow, I saw a few people in Instagram, using Lego for toy photography. I fall in love. The photos taken, looks alive ! At that moment, I set in mind, the choice of toys is really important. Try and google Lego Photography, and you'll be amazed with it. Currently I'm using Nobita Action Figure and the bricks for my journey in Photography World. I'm still new, but its fun to walk the road and I really love it. You can be creative and do a lot of things using the bricks. I'll post a lot more of the photos later on. At the moment, things that I can do with my photography are Travel Photography with my family, Portrait Photography of my wife and daughter and Lego Photography. 

Before this I was like, I need to split my blog into two, a personal blog and my photography blog. But it end up, it's hard to manage. So lets put it all here, and in future, if I wanted to upgrade this blog, it will be easier, hasifrahman.com perhaps? or maybe littleworld,com. Who knows. Haha

Lets start the fever and enjoy it. Like the author of stuckinplastic.com said, it needs to be about having fun, as that is what shooting plastic is all about. Having fun !

Phewwww...little cough. Uhuk Uhuk. Rasanya macam dah berhabuk blog ni. Sorry to the silent reader. A bit busy with work and life. Rasanya setiap kali minta maaf lama tak update, itu je la jawapannya kan. Haha, but seriously, its the true story. Plus bila jadi weekend husband ni, masa untuk personal hobby, memang terbatas sedikit. Oh ya, but the true answer kenapa lama tak update, I'll post in the next entry. Haha. 

Currently, kinda berminat dengan toy photography. Well, ini semua gara - gara kena racun dengan Toy Photographer dari luar negara di Instagram. From action figure to lego, hasil yang ditunjukkan sangat menarik. Kalau nak totally on the same level dengan mereka, akan ambil masa sedikit la. Ada beberapa teknik yang perlu dipelajari terutama photo manipulaton. Tetapi ada juga yang tidak menggunakan lansung photo manipulation, but they create the set creatively. Untuk satu shot gambar tu, mereka betul - betul sediakan set tersebut. Well, I've tried before with Nobita and I'm kinda love it. As per pic above, beanie tu my wife yang penat lelah cari orang untuk buat. Yeah, it's custom made. The skateboard? Saya beli di Toysrus. Saya juga beli satu lens converter (micro) to help the shot. Haha. That's what happen bila kita involve with toy photography. Its not totally the toys, tetapi kita juga akan cari barang sampingan to make the shot happen.

Later on, saya akan post lagi gambar - gambar berkaitan toy photography. See ya !
