Prepare Your Images for E-mail and Web

One unfortunate consequence from more and more people owning and using digital cameras, is that images are being misused in e-mails and on the web. By “misused” I here mean the following: Take a picture using your fancy digital SLR camera (or any digital camera). Transfer that picture to...

The Black Sun Project

Although I work with computers and sit at a desk most of the time, a lot of people don’t know this about me; I’m a handyman! It’s true! I am handy to the extent that I fix my own car, service my bike, renovate my house, build cabins, and so on. Inspired by the epic words “let there be light!” – and from what I saw a friend of a friend had done – I set out to build my own sun. Folks, I give you The Black Sun Project!

I built this “little device” to add some spice to my portrait photography. In fact the whole purpose of this humongous light source is to add a circular flash effect in the eyes of my portrait photo subjects. Although I find the idea quite brilliant, I am honest enough not to take credit for it; I was inspired by the work of Jan Fredrik Leversund (http://photonstew.blogspot.com/2009/02/black-sun.html).

All it took me to build it was a a piece of wood, some light bulb sockets from Clas Ohlson, light bulbs from IKEA, some electrical wire, an electrical switch and a aluminum stand to hold it.
