Before and After

I meant to post these ages ago. This is a little photo restoration work (the original and restored print are 8" x 10") I did for drakeula's birthday last year:

There is Always Something to Do

I just finished adding a few of the photos from Sunday's shoot to my Model Mayhem pictues page and realised that I really should pick some other photos to go there. I'd don't have any good runway examples.

New Gear

I put a hold on buying any photography gear for the last couple of months. At first out of money concerns as my contract with Tolko was running out and nothing was lined up yet, then because of the Christmas "don't buy anything for yourself in December" rule. Both of those now gone, I picked up something I've been wanting for a while:

A reflector umbrella and slave flash.

The lights I picked up in the summer are good and will have their place, but this is for bringing to Sin City and other places where a always-on, blaring-hot, 1000 Watts of glaring light is not a good thing. I also picked up a 4" x 6" photo printer for a stupidly good price (75% off - new and from a major retailer,  otherwise I'd think it was hot at that price!) so I will be selling pictures at Sin City on New Year's Eve. I've been wanting to do this since I got back from Convergence 11 where they had someone set up in the club selling pictures.

Naturally, once I got everything set up today "animal testing" ensued.

My new lens arrived yesterday. Bigger, blacker, and with more doom. Direct from Amityville, New York.

Taking Advantage of the Camera

I should have thought of this earlier. The IR light coming through and the fact that my replacement for the IR-cut filter does not have the same visible tint was throwing the white balance off. I forgot the camera has a manual white balance control. Setting off a white piece paper I can wholly compensate for the magenta shift in colour in-camera:
