Christian Cantrell is the Engineering Manager over at Adobe–but when he’s not playing Bruce Wayne he puts on the cape and cowl to become one kick ass photographer. His latest gig involves loads of softly lit and bokehlicious photos involving LEGOs. The photos depict scenes involving lots of famous characters, like Darth Vader. More of the images are after the jump and can be seen on Cantrell’s 500px page. And in case you’re wondering, Christian shot the photos with a Canon 7D and the 60mm f2.8 macro lens.

“What I enjoy most about photographing Legos is the challenging of infusing as much life and emotion as possible into largely expressionless toys. I know I’ve succeeded when I see that people are touched, inspired, amused, or even offended by simple pieces of plastic,” said Mr. Cantrell when I asked him about the series.
