    Amazing camera work CV. Do you do this for a living or is it a hobby?

    Any update on the "from behind the red curtain" bass project?
     
  2. Thanks for your kind comment rablack :)

    Photo is just for fun (hobby).

    Currently the "behind the red curtain" bass
    is drying, at least the last oilglaze.
    I have failed a few times with my initiall ideas :-(
    A few new scans will be posted soon.
    Likely there is about one more weeks work on
    the bass.

    Those are beautiful, C ! The sense I got when I looked at those was of an artist who really loves the instrument.

    Your "hobby" is pro quality.

    Superlative camera work. The top picture has become my desktop wallpaper at work, I hope you don't mind.

    The picture with the tuning fork? Was that an aperture trick? Or did you use software for that effect? It looks natural, like a deeper aperture, but it is unfocused on two planes, which is weird. Excellent picture.

    What lens did you use, and what body?

    Really, really cool photos! That series would make a great screen saver, ala what (All Hail!) Bob Gollihur has put together.
     
  6. Thanks for your kind words rickbass1 jazzbo
    & mchildree ! I am blushing ;-)

    Jazzbo,
    I am simply honored ! Please feel free to use the scans ! Aperture ? No tricks realy, just used
    the macro function. It´s a rather simple consumers digital camera. (Ricoh RDC-7) No extra lens.
    Slightly enhanced in Photoshop. So are all scans.
    I have played with it a little further, please click the attachment to see.

    Regards;
    Christian
