So I built my light box, the only problem was that I really didnt have enough light so I will post proper photos of the completed set up once I have acquired an other light source. Just as a teaser though I will show the photos I managed to get from the light box, unedited of course.
Oh and if you like these little pieces then pop back again sometime next week when they go on sale, just waiting for some of the packaging to arrive before I list them.
So I managed to get to work and pick up some boxes to attempt the diy light box. I also found out my manager who is a professional photographer has a one I can he said I could borrow so brilliant fall back plan if this one doesn’t quite work out. Being the genius I am, I did forget to pick up another lamp but let’s get the box going and see how it work with what I have. If this goes well I will write up a detailed tutorial including sections with the white balance function as that seems to be missing from the tutorials I’ve read so far.
Yeah, I’ve rediscovered the beauty that is deviantart, Uploaded some random bits of stock that I’ve had laying around for ages, still have a few more that I cannot find. I always seem to loose time when I start browsing the stock image section of deviantart. So many pretty images that I try and see if I can turn into something. Half the time I start something, get to a point that I am not happy with it or I cant get the light just the way I want it so I stop and save it for a later date. The amount of unfinished PSD I have laying around is rather frustrating. Even after cleaning out my files of old work, I have kept some of the ones where I can see where I want the image to go but I can quite make it go the way I want. I guess its good practice to keep tiding and editing, least I’m learning something.
So yet again my attention has been diverted from this deightful blog… I have a good reason that I cannot yet share. After christmas I should be able to share, I’ve been working on a present which all I am going to say about it for now.
My Lastest little creation, with this I tried to move away from the standard grungy feel my graphics tend to lean towards. It kinda works, the first look its very pink and Kawaii, then you notice the mask…. Which adds a creepy feel. Couldn’t help myself. 😀
Well my manger asked me to help him out with a little project that he was working on for the area managers, basiclly I had to create a donkey plan in place of our standard Bike Care plans, apparently they are doing a presentation in the form of a nativity so instead of Bikes they focus on Donkeys.
So I came up with that. Very pleased with it. And my area manager just emailed me saying it cracked him up so bonus for me! (Excuse the quality I took a photo of my screen)
