some thoughts on digital film simulation and stuff

I’m still trying to figure out the whole digital simulation of the film shooting process. Not just the post-process with the Alien Skin Exposure 7 Tri-X preset, which I adore. I want to simulate the whole thing as much as possible  – the limitation of exposures, the way you have to think when you shoot […]

cannondale is done!

The Cannondale R500 Feminine Triple is finished! Although I’ve changed the saddle and the shifter position slightly, this is pretty much how she looks! I had to find new (old) Tiagra shifters, which I did find on the Facebook page, Online Swap Meet for $55; new Deda Elementi Piega handlebars for $40 (including shipping); new […]
