This one was a bit messy to do :o) It took me several attempts to get it right with the camera on self timer which I thought would be easier than using the remote and having to coordinate that with pouring the sugar. The spoon is stuck to the top of a jar with blutac.

Flash through softbox from camera left directly in line with the spoon, I think this was 1/64 power.

2 sparklers + blu tack + bottle of mandarin liqueur = awesome fun

WIP shot of a terrain setup I am making, primarily to play Malifaux (http://www.wyrd-games.net/). I was just laying them out to see how much more I need to make, thought I would take a WIP shot. Malifaux needs a fair bit of terrain to keep things balanced between ranged and melee types. I figure I need about 5-6 more buildings plus a few more wall sections and some more crates etc to scatter around for cover.

 

The base is a couple of sheets of foamcore, hinged together with duck tape so it folds in half for easy storage. This has the basic stone tiling all over. The roads are then seperate bits of card stuck on with tiny bits of blutac, as are the buildings.

 

Its slightly narrower and longer than the "standard" 3' x 3' Malifaux board, more like 2'6" x 3'6". I have a vague plan to turn it into a dockside area using water to one side with some little piers and boats.

 

The whole thing is currently Dave Graffam (www.davesgames.net) stuff, his models are all pretty easy to make, pretty cheap but great quality, I can highly recommend. Nice thing is that a lot of the pdfs are multi-layer, allowing you to make several versions of the same building that look totally different.

 

Saw this while I was in Tesco the other day and just knew it had to be photographed. Very strange and eye catching to see something so iconic in a different colour to what you're used to. A bit of a balancing act with no aid from glue, blutac, wires, strings, smoke, mirrors or photoshop and here it is, coke life!

personally, I don't care how old my sandwich is, as long as it's been freshly cut

Sterling Homecare seem to have withdrawn from this branch. Pity they didn't tidy up before they left.

 

Blu-tac on glass never works that well in the long run.

This is my 5th photo to make Explore. Doing well!

My daughter "Elizabeth 10" came to work with me today. An produced these two out of "Blu Tac"

Materials I used:

Bristolboard A3

Faber Castell Pencils H, HB, 2B, 8B

Kneadable eraser and BluTac

Tombow Mono Zero erasers (it would have been impossible without them!!)

Tissues and a big fat tortillion

51 hours over nearly two months! (It’s actually a record for me!)

The various shots I took to create the final submission for my 'Still Life' studio assignment at City of Glasgow College.

 

I had the combs attached to a light table using blutac. One studio light was placed behind the table with a blue gel over the bulb. Then another light was placed to the right hand side.

 

The other half of the project is found here: www.flickr.com/photos/matt_82/15719298424/

Another day at the office.

I loved drawing this one, though it took me over more than a year to finish it.

 

Materials I used:

Bristolboard 33 x 22cm

Faber Castell Pencils H, HB, 2B, 5B, 8B

BluTac

Tombow Mono Zero erasers

tissues and tortillion

totally 25 hours work (finished June 2013)

This month Lugnuts has a "Lemons or LeMans" challenge.

 

Initially I wanted to build a lemon, such as the Tucker Torpedo, Chevrolet Corvair or Delorean or even a second Edsel, but none of these ideas really got me excited, as I feel I have been building too many cars that are too similar lately. I'm no fan of race cars in general, but I started looking into Le Mans racers, hoping to find a challenge there. As you can see, I've made my choice.

 

The Porsche 935 was a racing version of the famous Porsche 911 and between 1976 and 1982 almost completely dominated its racing class. The example I'm building is the Sachs Porsche, which went on to become first in its class and fifth overall at the 1980 Le Mans race.

 

Obviously there is a lot I still need to do. The rear of the car is completely unfinished, but when done will have a large spoiler. It is a race car, so it won't have much of an interior, but I do want to have some interior details and I want to spend some time on making the engine look good. Finally I will have to make a fair few stickers with race numbers and various sponsor names.

Tried out a new 77mm ND1000 filter. As I was to lazy to go down to the beach, I shot it with my 70-200 lens that only takes 67mm filters, BluTac FTW

First shot on Flickr with my new lens.

- Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 DC HSM

 

For this shot, I stopped on a dark sideroad, mounted the camera on top of the back seat (with BluTac) and set the self timer for 10 continuous shots.

I forgot to shoot in RAW and so the white balance was wrong :(

 

& becuase I took the first photo on the dark sideroad, the rest of the images were over exposed:(

 

*Though a lil' PP made things beter :)

  

FORD XR6 FALCON

Camera Set For Tungston Light.

Coin Proped Up With Blutac With Flashgun At Top Of Coin.

Taking time out one day, photographing the space just up and outside the bedroom. One of just 30 shots, all pretty much trying to capture the cobweb in the upper right corner.

 

Lighting is a problem, standing in the break between that coming in from the bathroom on the back. Shadows emerge as a result and the prospect of turning on the fluoroscent light pings.

 

Strategically placed mirrors on the floor would have made things a lot easier to shoot.

a little messy yes. I hoard.

First attempt at Module 6 of the 2012 DSLR Skills Course.

 

Greative lighting - using rear curtain flash on a moving subject.

 

I collected (pinched) a few ball bearings from my local car mechaninc (from knackered wheel bearings etc.) in the hope that they may "come in handy" for a photography project sometime and guess what - they have !!!

 

I placed a large sheet of black card on the kitchen worktop then arranged the balls in a triangle shape (snooker table style)

 

I setup my Nikon D7000 and 35mm lens on a tripod - focused manually using "live-view"

Set the on-camera flash to "rear curtain" and manual power of 1/16.

 

Natural light from kitchen window and overhead strip-lights.

 

The lens was set to F7.1 and exposure to BULB.

 

I also setup a short bit of card folded in half to form a "V" and rested one end on a large lump of blu-tac to form a ramp to roll another ball down and into the other bearings.

 

As I let the ball go I pressed the shutter button and once it had hit the other balls I released it - this then fired the flash.

 

This is actually the very first shot I tried using this setup and I'm very pleased with how it came out.....

 

The final exposure time was 1.3 seconds / F7.1 and ISO 100

 

Levels tweaked slightly in Camera RAW then converted to JPEG in CS5

..Take one cereal box & unfold, draw a Witch as you like, using a sharp knife & scissors cut out your Witch - a fine spray of black paint is advantagious. With your remaining card cut out a small crescent moon, using Blutac a-fix your Witch to a cocktail stick then push into a small hole on your 'moon card' to leave her about one inch forward. Shine a LED torch onto a white surface just behind the cutout moon - 'CLICK' your Witches Brew is ready! (Adjust levels & add stars on a Software of your choice. Thanks very much to Derek Fiechter for posting on YoutTube this great piece of music he's written - PLEASE PLAY & 'LIKE' as desired. Happy Macro Monday to all on Flickr.. Alan;-) HMM..

In the afternoon I escape to my new office. Here is my desk.

I'll be in this office until sometime just before Christmas when the new building opens.

Unflipped and cropped, the marble is resting on some blutac at the very edge of the lake.

I made an elephants head out of blutac and uploaded it. My friend bought me some more blutac for my b'day so I could make more animals so I made a penguin which she called Percy :)
