20180101: Music from the streets & heart…

I was considering calling it a day & shutting down.

This man came wandering up, he spoke a word or 2 of English.

I am only slightly better with my Spanish.

But for a peso, he strummed his guitar and made a low singing of some kind of song.

I thanked him & since I took his photo, gave him another 5 pesos. Yes, he is strumming/playing in the photo & plays with the fret hand in that position.

I can looking into this face & listen to his song… yeah, maybe there is a miracle somewhere that some human will learn to use & teach PEACE around earth.

Happy Hew Year 2018.

May you bring as much amusing times as harsh times.

May we find time to laugh once more….

20171121: DIY Strip light for under $10USD

OK, so this ain’t no pretty beauty queen of a strip light box, but heck a “decent” one starts at around $80USD.

20171121 Strip light box-0235_FB

Down here in Mexico, while I don’t know how soon I will need one, the shipping is expensive or I have to research out the Mexican companies that supply one.

I also have a money shortage & needed some soft boxes & hair light & a strip light so that adds of fast.

Well, the hair light and strip box were a little easier to make. I will wait on the soft boxes.

I made a hair light box out of cardboard & just need to find a little brighter light for it. The small LED light stick is too dim for studio work. I can stick a flash in there.

But the other day I noticed that here in town there are LED strip lights for sale & at only 95 pesos for one, heck that is like $5 USD so why not invest a little time to make a strip light out of one.

My neighbor also gave me a big cardboard box that was too large for what she needed.

So,

1200mm is over 4ft long & 6500k is a nice level to work with. I did have a small issue that facing forward I got stripes on the wall. I had bought the clear lens so I could have the most light possible & would make my own defusing for it.

So I just turned the light around and faced into the box. The shiny side of the aluminum foil would defuse that issue just fine.

I then added some more cardboard to make “barn doors” on the box.

I put aluminum foil on the joints of the barn doors & made sure that the barn doors were in the full open position when taping them together so I would not have issues of opening and closing them or light leaks.

Over all time is a couple hours of work, but here is the light in action.

Wide open doors.

20171121 Strip light box-0233_FB

Closed most the way.

And a half way flagged position.

So tape, aluminum foil, a cardboard box & a strip of LED 6500k lights, plus a little and I have something that works.

Like a say, “it ain’t pretty to look at!” But it does the job for now!

And is light weight enough to hang on a light stand/boom or even from the ceiling.

Creative Shooting folks! Specially those of you with a limited budget.
