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, ...

Box Building #3: Photography Light Box

08-12-2011 05:22 PM by Kent Shepherd | 12 comments »

I posted one of my boxes earlier in the week and promised I would blog my light box.If you have researched this you will know I obviously did not come up with this idea. In fact, I think there are others on Ljs. This is simply my version. I am a woodworker, not a photographer, so take all this with a grain of salt. As I develop the box further, I will add to the blog. I have not done anything yet I didn’t tweak over time, so why change now, huh! It’s called design evolution, not f...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #347: Photographing Your Projects

05-22-2011 02:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 15 comments »

One thing that I like so much about my job is that there is such a great variety of steps that need to be done in order to keep everything running smoothly. The saying that “necessity breeds invention” comes to mind when I am in the midst of doing so many of these other tasks. For someone such as myself, who is trying to make a living on my designing abilities, learning all the different aspects of what it takes to not only design patterns, but to produce and market them is a ...
