I was not in a mood to start any project so I went through some older photos and processed four of them. Three first are landscape shots with pretty basic editing but with the ‘Golden Path’ I wanted to test photoshop made lighting to get more painterly and fantasy like feel.
“Piirikilpailu” photos are on display under the Kuopio market place.
I had some leftover pictures from joker shoot so I thought I’ll make another joker themed image. There was three decent pictures but I did not want to just place them side by side, so I photographed hammer to mimic old mole smashing game.
One for the opposites theme. Tested the new bigger gels in studio lights with this one. I used basic reflectors and just taped the gels into them and it worked nicely for this picture. Fire was photographed in fireplace with thick rope dipped to lamp oil and set on fire. Ice was a plate about 2cm thick that was frozen in metal lasagna pan at our backyard.
After finishing the first wooden computer case project I got lots of ideas how it could be made better. So I made some drawings and when the time was right I started building a another one. I got veneer for free from paper factory. They use veneer disks to cover big paper rolls and some them were really good quality (well maybe little bit dirty but otherwise OK). I decided that this case will be standing in it’s own feet and would be computer desk in it’s true meaning. Since I had veneer for free I used it a lot and my case is a bit massive (over 100kg). Hopefully I’m not moving in a near future…
I used 20mm of sound insulation materials between two veneer sheets. It makes the the case very heavy but it’s not going anywhere. Hopefully… I made also sound traps for both incoming and outgoing air. For HDDs I made a special tunnel that has it’s own fan rotating in slow speed. It keeps them cool and quiet.
