Yesterday, as you probably know, I registered the domain name of http://www.365flyfish.com/. With this step up in commitment, comes a step up in pursuing my passion (along with sharing it). I'm starting to take this technology thing to the next level in my passion.
For example, you all remember last week I tied up the Wonder Woman pattern. The picture I took was what I thought was sub par. As a refresher, here is what that picture looked like:
- The Wonder Woman
As you can tell, there is a lot going on in the background and you really can't distinguish the black feather from something black in the background. After doing a little research on the Internet, I found out that you can make a simple box studio for around $10 with a box, some tracing paper, and some flashlights. I also used a tripod to help stablize the camera. The end result is below:
- Wonder Woman II
I think we can all agree that this is a much better photo. In the future, I plan on capturing all my photos this way and hope that it passes muster with all of you.
Also, I found myself with a little extra time before my wife came home this evening. I got an early Christmas present, and decided to have some fun. My wife gave me a Kodak Zi8 camcorder that is capable of recording in 1080 high definition. With a little experimentation on camera placement, I was able to start a first in a series of recording revolving fly tying. So all those out there who have been a little hesitant about how to fly tie, here's your first lesson on how to start the thread on the hook.
So, as a recap you can expect some improved things in the future. I hope you enjoy, and if anybody has some suggestions on what they would like to see, feel free to leave a comment.
