  • withdrawals....

    one day and I'm already going through project withdrawals....

    I haven't been to happy with my picture taking skills on the last few projects so I'm thinking about building one of those light boxes..I've had the materials here for months but never got around to making one..Plus I need a good picture of my Police project for the scrollers gallery...

    for those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, it's a box that you put your project in to take a helps with the light so you don't get the glare of the flash..

    I just have to find the instructions, there here somewhere...

      Why a light box? All you need is a sheet and an incandescent lamp. That's how I photographed the attachment. The frame does has glass, by the way, and I used the built in flash. You have to toy with the camera settings some to get the colors correct.

        That's weird, on my Volume disk 5, in the index I have Aticle index, Issue PDF's, and pattern pullouts.
        The pattern pullouts are broken up into 8-1/2 x 11 s

        At he end of each issue is a copy of the entire pullout for that issue....

        Our house is 3/4 of a mile from the bay, and then about 2 miles across the bay by boat to fire island and the ocean. About half of the bay is shallow with lots of shore birds etc. Google Belllport Village in maps. For us this place is a small slice of heaven.
        Lots of Egrets and Great blue Herons,...
