Camera lens

04-13-2008 10:19 PM by Don Kondra | 3 comments »

Geez, I thought I was done with shopping/research :) Seems that once you have your background and lighting down pat the next step is better glass. Keep in mind when I originally purchased my camera I didn’t consider it might be necessary to upgrade the lens. I did understand I may need a different lens for landscape shots for instance. Through this process I’ve come across various sites that show images from one end to the other of the range of a particular lens. I’...

Kite Camera Reel #4: Almost Done!

11-18-2009 04:21 AM by CaptainSkully | 1 comment »

I was able to squeeze another day in the shop. We started out by finishing up the parallel linkage with the barrel bolts we got from the hardware store. Then we fabricated the Brooxe hanger and the camera enclosure mount. Finally, it was time for the handles. ^ Handles installed on the reel assembly ^ Camera enclosure mounted on the bottom of the parallel linkage ^ Brooxe hanger showing how kite string winds around the “mushrooms” in the top member of the parallel l...

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, ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1470: Why I do Many Things Twice

01-05-2015 01:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I had a good and busy weekend. It feels really good to be back to work and return to something that resembles 'normal'. Between the past several weeks of one thing or another, I haven't really felt like I was in a good 'production mode' for a while. But that is fine, as we all need a break from our regular routine once in a while. Usually I go pretty much non-stop and even when I take time 'off' I am doing something work related. Slowing down a bit for the past mon...

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...

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...

Shop Shots #5: Photography from the Shop

08-25-2010 05:22 PM by Brian Havens | 2 comments »

Although my daily Shop-Shot is automatically tweeted every day (@brianhavens), I have had not had time to post it (manually) every day here on LumberJocks. As such, I put together a page showing all my recent shots for my LumberJocks pals: http://brianhavens.us/shop_shots.html Let me know what your favorites are.
