While trawling the interweb I occasionally bump into interesting photography links which I think others might be interested in but don't deserve a post of their own, so I thought I'd summarise what I've seen in the last month. Enjoy:

Photo Tips:

Camera flash soft box ... t-box.html
Since there has been some discussions recently about softboxes, here is a nifty one using a box from Ikea. I think the box name listed is incorrect, it looks like should be a Skubb Box.

Make Light Painting Circles With Light ... with-light
A neat trick of using a paint roller to make perfect light circles. The author's photo stream is really worth viewing: Dennis Calvert. [via LifeHacker]

What to do when you break your camera ... our-camera
Some sensible suggestions to follow when you damage your camera. I'm sure we all know this already. [via LifeHacker]


Flash bulb at 1052fps ... t-1052fps/
Just 13 seconds of an old style flash bulb burning in slow-mo. Worth seeing in HD. [via Petapixel via Gizmodo]

Lightning Captured by X-Ray Camera ... echnology/
A 680kg X-ray camera shooting ten million images per second sounds great... but at only 0.00003 megapixels (30 pixels). :( [via Gizmodo]

The Internet being surprising:

eBay auction of a battered old camera for US$104,000 ... 740wt_1705
That does seem expensive. The Leica MP-36 was apparently owned by Leif Engberg. [via PetaPixel via Gizmodo]

Camera speakers
Another case of people making things in the shape of a DSLR. Why would you do this? [via Gadget4all via GadgetSin via ChipChick via Gizmodo]

If you find these interesting let me know and I'll keep an eye out in the future.

thanks for that

I will add one of my own, which is a project that I would like to try at some stage

The softbox link might come handy for some of the keen attendees of the portrait seminar. :wink: Or maybe they will just visit the Profoto website... :mrgreen:
