I don’t feel any pressure to post anymore. No need to keep updating the old photo blog with reblogs and time wasting curiosities. I’ve used the time to work on my scanner instead and boy have I come a long way.
But first. Here’s a recap of some of the final images posted to my Tumblr sites:
Here’s the message I left to Tumblr regarding my feelings on the matter at the time:
The server had an upgrade and a couple of my posts were deleted. Could be worse all things considered. That does mean that I have a lot to update you on though.
Personally I feel a little lazy about it all and may just dump a buttload of images in your lap and let you sort it out for yourself. Heh.
So to bring you up to speed:
the 3D scanning rig (ver. 2) worked better than I hoped. Now I need to bring in more cameras… working on that right now.
Still looking for a studio space. Came very close to buying a warehouse a couple of months ago, it fell through though. Back on the hunt again. The challenge is finding a space in my price range and with a relatively convenient location… hard to do in North Texas.
Looking for some fresh faces and perverse minds for models… hard to do in North Texas too ifnyaknowutimean. If you’re interested, check out this info here.
Here are some images to chew on. Enjoy!
Here are some additional pieces that I’m calling sketches for now. I’m tinkering and seeing where this takes me. It could be good, could suck. Either way I think it’s interesting to see the embarrassing stumbles that might lead to gold. It’s worth the exercise. Here are my stumbles:
Here’s a project I’m tentatively calling the History of Pornography (I’m terrible at titles):
I’m being crushed by a project that’s been going on and on, over-budget and continuous delays. In the background my collection of (slightly ignored) vintage negs has been piling up and I haven’t had a moment to get them organized and scanned.
Well, I’m taking a few well deserved moments to bring you up to date in preparation for the marathon scanning I’ll have to do once I’m out from under the elephant.
Behold! A small mountain of vintage pinups, porn and general nonsense:
I’m pooped. But I’m chugging on. There’s been a few new additions to the portfolio and a new addition to my Candy Earle collection too.
Here’s the new Candy Earle:
Some 3D updates as well… The first prototype camera array has been built and it does work. Just not enough cameras (or the right lens if I’m being totally honest) to produce a clean scan, but it does scan. I’m on the hunt for the material and keep y’all appraised of my progress.
P.S. Totally check out my casting call, because Rhubarb tastes more like stewed prunes than asparagus. That’s why.
