TTV Digital Camera Take 3

So far I’ve made the mod box and another box top specifically for my digital camera. I’m determined that I can make my digital camera work. I’ve learned what some of the settings on my camera do that I have never messed with before. I’m still tinkering with settings but so far the results are a bit better. I’ve also cropped it a bit to take out the super dark bits and the reflections of the Ciroflex’s insides.

TTV Take 2

This morning, I made another top for the Ciroflex TTV Mod Box.

I’m slightly more happy with the digital camera results though I’m still holding out for the possibility that the disposable camera photos will turn out better.

So what does Zoe think about all this? Looks like he’s not amused… probably because I interrupted his nap to ask him.

TTV Camera Mod

I picked up this Ciroflex Model B last September with the intention of moding it for TTV photography.

I took some time this afternoon to make a very inexpensive mod to hold the camera in place and block out any extra light. All I used was a bit of black foam board, duct tape, braided elastic, and some pipe insulation foam.


I experimented with my new mod box with the disposable camera that is in the photo above, my old faithful basic digital camera, and the camera on my phone. I don’t have any of the disposable camera photos yet as I still have some exposures left.

This is an eerie photo of my kitchen chair that I took with my phone’s camera. I don’t think this is going to be a good option for TTV. I took many photos but this was the only one that looked like anything.

This is the same chair but taken with my digital camera:

I had better luck with my digital camera outside:

I’m not entirely happy with my digital camera results. I’m hoping to make a new top to the mod box that is specifically made for the digital camera to see if that will give me the results I’m hoping to get. I’m also excited to get back the disposable camera photos to see if they’ve turned out any good.

Destashing Yarn

I have too much yarn. It’s the side effect of working at a yarn store. Some of my yarn needs a new home.  Will you let it come home with you?  I currently have some things listed on Ebay so these yarns will be gone quickly.

Yarns on Ebay:10 skeins of Louet Riverstone Mill Ends

1 skein of Cascade Eco+ in Aporto (my favorite color from Cascade)

1 skein of Malabrigo Lace in Black Forest

1 skein of Malabrigo Lace in Pearl

1 skein of Malabrigo Lace in Frank Ochre

I’m also destashing 5 sets of Sock Yarn Minis on Ravelry.

And… I have 30 other yarns listed in my Ravelry stash that are for sale.  These will gradually go on Ebay to be sold since selling on Ravelry is not always speedy and I would like to free up some space sooner rather than later.
