The Sorcerer’s House

It’s very hard to find time these days.  I don’t finish work until 10pm, it’s after 10:30 by the time I get home.  I took this picture on Monday night using the new lightbox I made on the weekend in combo with my two flashes.  I’m not entirely happy with the results.  The problem being that I just can’t spend until after midnight messing around rigging up apparatus to vary lighting diffusion and so forth. I do have to get up at about 6:30 in the morning…

Actually, it’s not too bad for a rushed attempt.  I really want a pure white background with no shadows – I didn’t achieve that.  That aside, as I mentioned in the previous post, it really is a beautifully presented piece of the bookbinder’s art (though no doubt done by a machine..).  Once I get the lighting sorted we’ll have a closer look, but for now, here it is.
