Self Portrait - Day 25

Today I couldn't find any inspiration or ideas for the daily photograph. I'm tired after 2 hours of spinning and I have a cold. Hmfffff.

So I Chose to test the Lightscoop Warm flash bouncer unit together with a Nikon MC-36 remote cable release unit attached to my Nikon D300. In this way I could position my self in front of the camera and auto focus by pressing the "release" botton on the MC-36 and take the photo by pressing full. A very smart little cable release unit this Nikon MC-36.

This photo was captured with my iPhone 4 - hence the bad quality due to difficult light situation. As you can see the Lightscoop Warm is placed in the flash hotshoe and the harsh flash light is reflected to the left where is bounced on a white book shelf. This will ofcourse result in lesser light than if the flash light had bounced from the white ceiling. The only way to show the Nikon MC-36 was to wrap it around the flash head :-)

This is the photograph - I must apologize for my appearance but here we go. In LR3 I dropped the saturation a bit and made a few other small corrections (needed :-) )-

I've just ordered a new book from Amazon. The name "x-teams" immediately caught my eye as I read about it in the Danish business newspaper - Børsen. The reviewer assigned 5 marks out of six, so expectations are high.
X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

SnapScan 9000 - be prepared for a laugh

Can you guess who the nice young man is in the image? It is me as a high school student - important years - where my passion for photography really took off. My god - 35 years has passed since those happy years.

I have just scanned b/w negatives and color slides from these years, and it has been hilarious to see the pictures again. Since many of the images are not something to boast about, the mission was only to get the old negatives and slides converted to digital format. Since I have many pictures from my analog years this conversion process must also go quickly.

Therefore I have just tested JOBO Snapscan 9000. It took med just 5 minutes to unpack it and set up. The scanning process is extremely simple. You install an SD card in the scanner, and then feed negatives or slides into the scanner by the help of various rails and frames - one at a time. The scan process only takes 4 seconds per negative / slide. The scanner has some simple correction options such as built-in color corre…
