About the workshop

Steve walks us through taking better photos of your LEGO® train models for the awards – and for fun, too. From very basic set-ups using your smartphone, to more involved set-ups with lightboxes, other lighting equipment and SLR cameras.

Find out how to take better, more professional photographs and answer common questions including:

  • What’s the best lighting for my model?
  • Which angle should I take photos from?
  • What is the best background for photographing my LEGO® train models?
  • What’s the best way to photograph long models?
