My tablet has some issues, so I took it to the doc. to have it X-Rayed. Note the different image contrast across the voltage range.
I took an X-Ray of a Gameboy classic. Coincidental a transparent one. This was actuality one of the first X-Rays I took with the X-Ray machine. This picture shows the projection of X-Rays on a fluoroscopic screen (intensifier screen) normally found in X-Ray cassettes. On the right side the Gameboy can be seen.
The column stand in use. The camera shutter is triggered with the foot pedal.
I have an old Sanyo Xacti video camera which I use very rarely. Therefore every time I need the camera the battery is empty. Since I use the camera mostly at home I built a dummy battery for the camera. This post is not meant as instruction but as suggestion how it could be done.
I had parts of an old Durst enlarger and a friend needs a column stand for her animation work. I bought a Manfrotto 323 quick change plate + adapter. After some cutting, drilling, thread taping and a really terrible welding job an arm to mount the 323 was made.
With this the 323 can be attached to the column with the necessary distance.
To ease working a bit further I made an foot pedal based remote shutter release + adapter for Canon SLR.
A fun way to pep up black and white pictures is to modify the colors of the picture. For instance, take this iconic picture of Che Guevara. is is based on a black and white picture. I replaced white with red to to achieve the look of the well know version of this image.
Replacing white with red is not the only option. Using the brightness a white or a black image for the RGB channels allows in total 64 variants to combine into a colored picture.
I always wondered how does a photographic film look like during processing. Is there a visible image right after developing the film? Or is the image hidden below the anti halation protection layer and not visible until the film is in the fixation bath? Let’s find out! Continue reading IR video of a film being processed
