i’m not sure what this has to do with Volkswagen, but it’s at the center of the steering wheel on a ’70 Bug.

looks like it belongs on a Volfkastel instead.  (rimshot!)

see you tomorrow

visual t(r)ip: making your (or in this case ‘my’) own light box, very cheap, very awesome, very easy

Posted by bee3six5 on April 22, 2010

Steff is out at her friend Shannon’s for the night.  (i’m gonna party!)  so i thought i would take the time to build myself a light box so i can take some product pictures for Steff’s aunt, Kate. (i’m a nerd!) (and lots of name dropping!)  it was really easy after reading through these directions from DigitalPhotographySchool.com.

here’s how it all went down.

it was a weird day: was it raining? was it sunny?  was there some guy walking around with an orange vest and a gun?

i got everything here for under $15.50, save the few items i had on hand

cut box (i measured 1 and 1/2 inches in from the edge)

cover insides with white (i used poster board) (i also could have done a better job) (i’m sloppy)

add the ‘background’ (again, just poster board) (also wanna try black)

then cover all the open areas with a cut up 2XL Hanes tee-shirt

cut open a window in the front (i probably should have cut it the other way)

set up some light

the zumi isn’t really built to take close range pictures

extreme close-ups are a different story

since the zumi was kind of a bust with this ‘shoot’ i thought i’d show you a-one or a-two of the pictures i took with my Nikon

a-one

and (probably my favoritest picture of all time, i present to you, ladies and gentlemen, zumi) a-two

that’s all for now.  i kinda went overboard.  but it was fun, i’m excited to take some pictures of actual products.  if you sell things on eBay, or etsy, or anything like that, you should definitely take the time to make yourself a light box.  light tents in the stores cost about $100, for a cheap one.  so make yourself a cheap one for just over $15 instead.  in case you forgot, here are the instructions again.

see you tomorrow

let me have a look deep into your soul (a.k.a. boy’s choice xi)

Posted by bee3six5 on April 13, 2010

 

consider your soul searched.  i found some loose change and some hopes of being famous.  you can have your fame, i just want the change.  the vending machine in the hallway sells Raisinets.  i’m short 10 cents.  thanks. 

see you tomorrow

thank Jeebus!  spring has sprung which means we’re finally going to get some color back in this dreary and dreadful place called New Jersey.  see example below.

it starts with blue and yellow, but who knows where we’ll end up? i guess somewhere in the ROYGBIV.  otherwise i’m going to start making my own colors.  blorange.  greelow.  you get the picture…

see you tomorrow
