balancing whites in the lighting

These days I have printed in 3D a second version of my adapter for the Rogonar S 35mm, with 10 LED housings to create a flat, ring lighting. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49472246261_a236a8bccb_c.jpg Everything works fine, but the colors of the LEDs obviously do not look anything like the colo...

I used a similar device for years to hold reflectors and diffusers. But instead the copper wire I use a flexible arm cannibalized from a cheap computer microphone from the Chinese store. I have six of them, and never I have enough...

I have spent much of the day trying to understand the creation of a 3D volume in Photoshop ... without luck. I manage to texture the basic shapes by default (cylinder, sphere ... bottle, what were the Photoshop programmers thinking?:roll:) I also get your "hedge hog" ... but I can't apply my depth m...

Gracias, JL I have a soft for to convert a serie of shots in a 3d model. in fact, I have made some tests with successful outcomes. That part, on one side or the other I think is fixed, I know the least two soft possibilities for to do it, so for now I want to focus on the conversion of a stack into ...

I can´t find how I can use Zerene for this work. maybe I need the "Pro" version? A tutorial somewhere? I worked a lot with photoshop, but phot...

wow! how much information! I believe that with a synthetic 3D, created from the deep displacement of the images of a stack, it will give me enough information for what I need. I have also tested rotating objects and many photos from all angles (an old music disc player is a good platform to start) a...

How to create 3D images?

Hi. For a new, exciting work, I must create 3D images of objects that are not too small (5 mm) but that already require stacking of images so that they are completely clear. These 3D images must be able to be exported to my 3D engineering software. I know that Helicon does this, but perhaps because ...

Re: Chrysocolla after azurite

............ I was able to print on my 3D printer an adapter of this objective to M42x1 and try it. That is a good result from this lens that cost little but has delivered so much. Would you be prepared to share the 3D printing file for the lens adapter? Thanks for reading. BR John Of course, tomor...

I don't know. These samples are for analisis. Some minerals are identified, some still no.

Chrysocolla after azurite

After reading about the Rogonar S 35 I bought a few. In fact I made a mistake and bought twice! But they are so cheap that it is not important. After several months without free time I was able to print on my 3D printer an adapter of this objective to M42x1 and try it. I like the result a lot. A lot...
