Stocking Up Behind The Scenes

At this stage in my career as a toy photographer I have a sizeable collection of LEGO models and minifigs.  However I don't have a lot of plates and stuff to make backgrounds, and to act as supports - basically the behind-the-scenes stuff.  So lately I've been working on beefing up that part of my collection.

Look for these bricks in the backgrounds of my future work!  First person to spot them gets official kudos on the blog.... so stay tuned!

Fascinating.
