Many Updates

Many Updates

I had many updates to perform today.  I’ve had so much time sucked away from me lately it is ridiculous.  I ended up having to do catch up on several websites and studio to-do things.

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to have a set time to do certain things each day?  Well, sometimes we can, but other times we’re subject to appointments and time schedules that are beyond our control.  It is for that reason today is a catch-up day.

I’ve been looking at the LED light I’ve created.  It’s all scratched up and beat up.  Of course, it is a prototype, but I do wish it didn’t look like it has been through a world war.  I’m going to make a new one from scratch and do it perfectly this time.  I want to to look like something someone bought at Best Buy, and not something that looks like parts from the junkyard.

I need to find a source where I can see and handle the switches before I buy them.  That was part of the problem.  I bought a 5 pack from Amazon.com and 3 of the 5 were defective.  As a result, the case got kind of messed up because 2 of the 5 defects were mechanical and rather than return and wait for new switches, I attempted to correct them with the Dremel Tool.

The light is great for portraits.  Functionally, my light works like a champ.  It’s just… ugly right now.  That is why I’m going to make a new one from scratch.

LED Strip Light Test Shot

Well, I have many updates to perform.  I better get back to the grindstone.

Oh, one more thing…

On May 21st, Saturday, 2016, I will be conducting a Super One Day Workshop for PPA on LED lighting.  Yes, it will be educational and fun.  People can register here:  http://www.ppa.com/edu/content.cfm?ItemNumber=3236
