Pardon the dust

Whilst I get this whole migration to WordPress sorted out… Comments are temporarily turned off until I get the blog locked down against spammers.

[Update]: Seems like I got most of the kinks ironed out. Permalinks and RSS feeds should be redirecting.

[Update2]: Switched to the TypoXP theme. Included Google Analytics.

[Update3]: Switched themes for the nth time. I never said I wasn’t fickle. 😉

Angels Mosaic

I was asked recently to help some friends with a mini-“product shoot” for some beautiful angel ornaments that they were making to raise funds for a Habitat for Humanity project. The first batch of photos were needed in a hurry so I had to come up with a DIY mini home studio real quick. I grabbed a roll of mahjong paper (basically big white sheets of paper) on the way home from work, thinking I could use them as a cheap backdrop. In the end, I just used an A4 sheet of paper propped up against a desk light, and the mahjong paper ended up being a pretty good reflector instead. I wish I had taken some pictures of the setup but it took no more than 10 minutes to setup and even less to tear down.

I think I didn’t do too badly for my “first time”. A little rough at the edges, but with a little work in Photoshop, the photos turned out okay. At least my friends seem pleased with it.

I dropped by the “angel-workshop” on Saturday and took some more photos. Response has been great for the angels so far and they are selling out fast. Great work guys!

PS: Thank you, Mosaic Maker!
