    How I Take Photographs

    I thought I'd show you all my simple homemade photography setup. (With a tip o' the hat to Neal Addy.)

    I always enjoy seeing these Rube Goldberg chain reaction setups. The level of creativity and the amount of work that goes into preparing them is always amazing to me.

    Sometimes it seems to me that taking pictures is almost that much work when you have to drag out the photo booth, lights, set it all up and then take a bunch of pictures which you have to sort through, modify and crop etc. to get one good one.

    But, hey, you have to do all this to be a woodturner, right?
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    It's not the same without the soundtrack... though I like the "okgo" reference they snuck in!
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    I cannot imagine the time spent to set that all up.

    I never knew Ned had that much equipment
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
