07-17-2010 01:49 AM by Brian Havens | 5 comments »

I got the itch to do a little photography (one of my past hobbies) in the shop. The wood is spinning at about 1000 rpm.

I was sure happy with the results.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I just draped it over the back of the couch like this. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Here’s some results.

Extremely Average #26: Photographing my Blog pt. 2

01-28-2010 06:46 AM by Ecocandle | 19 comments »

I have been giving one tip to people for years. It is so simple, I hesitate to even call it a tip, but alas I don’t have a thesaurus handy, so I have little choice. This applies to every photo, whether it is an image of your latest woodworking project or a prize winning picture of a yeti. The last thing I do, before I press the button, is to slowly force myself to run my eyes around the edge of the image. I know it sounds dumber than Jethro Bodine, but that is because it is so easy. ...

Extremely Average #25: Photographing my Blog pt. 1

01-27-2010 04:20 AM by Ecocandle | 19 comments »

If a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it’s as though I’ve neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up. -Richard Avedon I didn’t know about the work of Richard Avedon before his exhibit at the Corcoran at the end of 2008. As a volunteer docent at the gallery I got to hear a lecture from the curator of his traveling exhibit, and learn about his amazing works. I became a fan. This wasn’t the beginni...

Woodworking and Photography

01-18-2010 06:33 AM by HickoryHill | 5 comments »

How is it that I love Woodworking and I love Photography, but I can’t bring myself to put the two together yet? But anytime I get one of my pieces mounted and framed I always choose a black frame. Whether is is metal or wood I always go with black. Maybe I haven’t taken that appropriate picture yet.

Extremely Average #12: It aint my Faulkner

01-14-2010 03:47 AM by Ecocandle | 8 comments »

“Sometimes I think it aint none of us pure crazy and aint none of us pure sane until the balance of us talks him that-a-way. It’s like it aint so much what a fellow does, but it’s the way the majority of folks is looking at him when he does it.” -William Faulkner, Novel,1930 ‘As I Lay Dying’ I enjoyed this novel. I enjoyed it a great deal, especially after I became use to the style, called stream of consciousness, with which Faulkner penned his ‘tour de force’. In just 6 weeks, w...

Kite Camera Reel #8: The Reel Deal...

Here’s the kitecam footage with a little background music. If you want a funnier/naughtier version, browse to YouTube by clicking the link at the bottom right and look at our other videos (Warning: Explicit). Remember, I warned you. Little pitchers… We’re flying to the British Virgin Islands tonight! I’ll post some more video of exotic locales. Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow LJ’s and their families.

Kite Camera Reel #7: Reel Progress...

11-26-2009 05:43 AM by CaptainSkully | 5 comments »

Not much to say. I’ve got some video editing stuff to figure out (upside down footage – camera is currently dangling upside down underneath the rig – and how to play some sappy sailing music in the background), but otherwise it was a success. I’m going to coat all the parts with three coats of Arm-R-Seal to try to keep the saltwater out. Wait until you see the footage from the kitecam!

Kite Camera Reel #6: Lighten Up!

11-25-2009 02:14 AM by CaptainSkully | 5 comments »

Here’s the two reels after I strategically removed about half the wood. It’s still strong, but a whole lot lighter to stuff into the luggage. We’ve addressed the canting keel problem of the camera, and we got our camera/enclosure in the mail today, so I think we’re set. I figured out how to invert .avi video, so we’re going to hang the camera upside down from the middle of the parallel linkage. Tomorrow, we’re going to jump on a boat for an hour and...

Kite Camera Reel #5: Wright Brothers, Eat Your Hearts Out!

11-24-2009 07:09 PM by CaptainSkully | 7 comments »

So today after sailing lessons, we used the boat to “test drive” our contraption. The kite flew very well on just 4 knots under motor, but we had to tweak the lines a bit to get it to fly horizontally. We discussed that the kite can only be flown while we’re going upwind, but that still gives us lots of leeway. The reel performed very well, especially the two speed handles. As you can see, I’m in the process of lightening the reel by drilling holes. We’r...
