Inside a Leland Faraday motor

To prevent any future fireworks I replaced the power cord on this old motor.

Brass is (still) shiny


Hope this is the last time I have to shoot this thing. It's time to move on.

Brass is shiny

5000K CFL, Nikon D40, white seamless background paper, Douglas fir branch, a bunch of bailing wire, and a little bit of art.

With the advice of  J R Compton’s, “How to Photograph Art” I’ve started the process of re-shooting  my work. The new images are better than the old ones but brass is still either too shiny or not shiny enough.

Oh, how I envy painters sometimes.
