Photography addiction drives Woodworking habit

10-03-2014 10:34 PM by Don "Dances with Wood" Butler | 13 comments »

If you count how long I’ve been working wood by my oldest machine that would be my 28 year old ShopSmith. But truth to tell, it all started when we moved into this house which we believe was built around 1804. Even new houses need care, but when they’re more than two centuries old, they’re REALLY needy. An even older habit with me is photography. I’ve been in and around photography since I worked in a large photo developing plant at the age of 18. Turn those numbers...

Photography #2: Soft Box 2

12-29-2013 04:17 PM by dakremer | 6 comments »

I forgot to post a diagram of my wiring….(Thanks to Lumberjocks for helping me with this!) Today I’m going to work on the actual Softbox skin. I think this will be the most challenging part. I have a pretty good start already…. For the skeleton, I found some carbon fiber poles at a Big Box Store. It was an 8’ section of it with a flag on one end (I think used for putting on the back of a Snow Mobile). I cut the poles into 2 4’ pieces. I then mocked...

Photography #1: Soft Box 1

12-29-2013 06:04 AM by dakremer | 12 comments »

My wife and I have been getting into photography after buying the new Canon 70D. My wife would like to start taking more portraits (after being asked by several coworkers to take pics of their kids, etc). Since we don’t have a studio, and our apartment’s lighting is subpar for great picture quality, I decided to look into buying some Soft Boxes. Here is an example of a soft box (from google pictures).... I know you can buy some online for pretty cheap (but I’m su...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1126: A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

09-08-2013 11:34 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I got quite a bit of work done on the new pattern packets for the Halloween ornaments and keys yesterday. However, I do see that finishing up will take another day (or two) to do and now I am looking at perhaps Monday or even Tuesday for getting things on to the site. I had ideally wanted to have them available by the weekend, but as usual I underestimated the time it would take to do so in my mind and it turns out to be a much longer process than first anticipated. So what else is new? ...

Workshop #3: Infinite curve

03-26-2013 03:48 PM by BritBoxmaker | 8 comments »

For a while now I’ve been using A1 size (metric) heavy gauge art paper for the infinite curve in my project photo’s. It’s expensive. It gets dirty and needs replacing every few uses. It occurred to me that heavy duty lining paper, the sort used in the decorating trade would probably do just as well Its about the same width as the shorter dimension of A1 and there’s 10 metres on a roll, enough for about ten curves. A simple addition to my lighting rig allows f...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #867: Pretty as a Picture

11-06-2012 12:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

One thing that I love about doing design work is that there are so many aspects of the process to consider. In addition to drawing the patterns on the computer, the projects need to be cut, assembled and finished in order to make sure that everything was done properly. Once that is finished, the actual instructional pattern packets need to be created, which include clear and concise directions on how others can replicate the project easily. This often includes not only step-by-step photogra...

Woodworking Photography #1: Getting sidetracked

12-19-2011 03:03 AM by ronhowes | 5 comments »

I’m getting sidetracked. If you’ll notice, the better woodworkers also seem to be excellent photographers. I’ve taken thousands of pictures over the years, but have come to realize that I know nothing about photography. Recently I have been scouring the internet, pouring over books and asking lot’s of questions. I have concluded that I really don’t want to venture into another hobby, but I do want to know enough to take better photos of my work- (and family, ...
