If you like it, then you should’a put a ring on it.
‘Picture of the Year International’ is sort of a big photo contest, and this year (the contest’s 66th) they are streaming the judging live (Thanks for the heads-up Gretchen). I hunkered down on the new couch with a turkey sandwich and stared at the computer for the better part of the afternoon. If you get the chance this week, you should really check out the link. There is some tight photojournalism out there.
Anyway, I justified spending the better part of the afternoon on the couch by also taking the time to complete my homemade ring light.
It’s almost entirely tape and it only sorta works but it was fun and it works enough that I bet I’ll find an application for it. Besides I really really like making my own equipment…
You know that part in Return of the Jedi when Luke builds his own light saber… I’d be lying if I said that didn’t have something to do with it.
