 My latest video is up.  In this one I build a cool robot model because... cool robot!

New Video: Blade Diorama

 My latest video is up.  This time I make a gothic style diorama to host a 3D printed Blade.  I also learn something about my motivations along the way.

Video: Shooting Mandos

 My latest video is up!  Come behind the scenes of my recent shoot with the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club.   Along the way get some advice on how to make the most of things if you suddenly find yourself in a photoshoot with talented cosplayers.

Shooting Mandos

On Saturday I drive to Winston-Salem to hang out with a camera club and shoot some Mandalorian cosplayers.

I've only managed to process one image so far, but it looks pretty dang epic!

I got more images to come, so stay tuned!

Moar Power!

 I took a mental health day from work.   I ended up running a new electrical circuit in my basement to provide more lights, and put a power socket near the location where my new 3D printer is going to live (oh, I also bought a new 3D printer - more on that later).

I've helped others run circuits before, and I've swapped out a light socket or two, but this is the first time I have done an entire circuit by myself.  It all went smooth (except apparently there are at least 3 types of breakers, made by different companies, that all look remarkably alike, but are not compatible - so a big screw you to the breaker panel people - take a memo:  standards are good and you should try them... but anyways...).

I ordered new LED panel lights to go into the sockets, which are perfect for maker spaces.  The arrive on Saturday.  

Feels good to have made significant improvements to my studio.  Almost adult like, but I am against adulting...adultering?  Adultery?  Defintely against adultery - but I do like moar power!
