My Latest Project

This was a project I wanted to do with the kids. I ended up doing 98% of it alone, but it was fun anyway. You can see the rest of the series of these photos HERE Or see a slide show by Clicking Here.

Yes, I used a hairdryer and a lot of time and patience.

Cool. I can see how this would sound like great fun to kids and that they would lose patience.

They lost patience before we even started. They helped me sort crayons for about 2 minutes and then were off doing other things. At least they had fun.

Dude, that is AWESOME! Great job, GB's! I saw the recent shots on the facespace, and was really impressed!

What glass where you using? Any external lighting?

Thanks guys. It was a very fun project and I might do it again, but with other ideas.

Tatt, those were shot with my super wide angle lens. It is a Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8. I used various combinations of available light, bounce flash, and reflector.

Did you only use the blow dryer to move the wax around?
