The local photo group's assignment this month was "Nostalgia"...


I LOVE THE SMELL OF FIXER IN THE MORNING!!!! Smells like..... victory!


ah.... the good old days.


Strobist info:


Tried my hand at the patented "David Hobby Macro Boxen"

Sunpak 544 at 1/8th power shooting through white craft paper to camera right.


I was not happy with the thermometer face with no fill or with fill

coming through the paper on the left.


I ended up pointing a sb800 set on 1/32 at about a 45 degree angle through the

paper from above and gobo-ed the back half of the top to keep the

background from getting hot.


I dig the definition on the stainless reels but there are some bald

spots on the camera and weston loader that i'm not happy with.


But then again that is a lot of black sucking up light.


oh.. Ebay trigger as always.
