Reset

Starting today, I'm going to be slowly working on:

  1. Upgrading some of my older sites to a newer version of Drupal.
  2. Rethinking where I post about certain things.

With regard to the latter point, I'm going to start focusing more on life, religion, philosophy, and such things on this particular blog, while I will focus more on technology (and web development in particular) on my Midwestern Mac, LLC blog.

I've hit a point where I think I'll start putting a few sites I maintain on mothballs (much like I have my old 2002-era Latin website, the Dual of the Seminarians site, et all).

DIY - Make a Free Light Stand Out of an Old Tripod

If you need a better way to hold the light you use while taking pictures with the DIY Greenscreen you just made, or you need a better way to control where light goes for keying out backgrounds in Photoshop, read through this tutorial on how to make a quick and durable (and highly configurable) lightstand out of one of those old, sort-of broken cheap tripods you have sitting in your closet. Even if it's your main tripod, you should be able to modify it so you can swap it for a lightstand or standard tripod pretty easily.
