Skywalker lounges in Tatooine


I must give full credit to my 9-year-old son for this photo. He knew we were taking a trip to southern Utah and decided to build a Lego lounge chair, table and beverage for his little Luke Skywalker Lego guy to enjoy on the red sands of Snow Canyon State Park. He set up the scene and had me shoot it. What do you think?

041512 Skywalker Lounge 2

Canon 60D | 55-200mm lens | 1/250 | f/10 | ISO 100 | Speedlite 430EX II

Once he had the scene set, I hooked up my flash and shot away. I used my zoom lens, mainly just to use it so I didn’t feel like it was wasting space in my camera bag. I took photos from a few different angles, but then my son decided to make the drink look like it was coming off the table and that Luke was using the Force to get the drink in-hand.

So, full credit to my son for this creative Lego shot.

    • My son loves Star Wars. Although he has only seen episode one and two, he can recite the whole Star Wars movies, including all the Clone Wars cartoons. Passionate is not a strong enough word for him and Star Wars.
