New Photos; New Website etc.

Well that was a drama.

The website decided to go into complexity-overshoot mode at the same time as my WIFI went down, so I wound up spending 3 days rebuilding the thing using a cellphone. I’m getting to be to old for this sort of thing. It’s traumatic.

Anyway, I’ve taken a load of new photos using the new photo-booth thing:

I cannot describe what a saga this has been. I’ve found that it’s incredibly hard to take photos. In the end I wound up abandoning the DSLR, and used a cellphone. They’re getting to be pretty good now. They don’t do depth of field as well as DSLRs, and there isn’t the same degree of control, but when you’re shooting in a confined space, at changing distances it’s better to sacrifice some of that to manoeuvrability.

Anyway – the website is (as things stand) 90% finished… which leaves another 90% of stuff still to do… annoying nimminy-pimminy things like the way landscape photos look tiny, while portrait look absolutely massive, and I can’t change the code because someone thought it would be a good idea to rewrite the HTML on the fly using obfuscated javascript. I’m getting to be to old for this sort of thing.

Anyway – here is (hopefully) the best photo of each thing, in my most humble of opinions, if I might say so myself.

Special thanks to my people (Glenn, Grant and Alan), without whom I would have hurled myself into the sea in frustration and disgrace long ago.

Anyhoo… photos:

Golden Mean Caliper Comparison Chart

I thought it might be useful for people to be able to compare all the calipers on the one page, so I made a comparison chart.

Demo of Golden Ratio in Artistic Composition (fairly disorganised)

Over the years, I've built up a collection of Golden Ratio Calipers... and I decided it might be quite useful for people if I made a video comparing them. Some of them are really good - some terrible. So I set up my camera... and found that my video-space looked a bit bare... needed a painting. So I decided to…

Why The Golden Ratio Works For Flowers

Fairly amazing video going into the maths of why flowers (and pine-cones, relative leaf positions etc) are so often based fibonacci numbers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sj8Sg8qnjOg And it's fairly amazing because I actually understood it. It's been a loooong time since I tangled with quadratic equations, but (on the 2nd watch) this did actually make sense to me. I always thought that with…

Limited Run : Neon Colour Range

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zoPqpqB6er0 I was tinkering with these colours a while back... and then someone with exceptional taste and style made a big order for a whole range of coloured ones... and every one was all "ooh!!!" So I made some for the local art gallery - and they all sold as well. So I made enquiries about getting a lot more…

New Product Videos

I'm putting together a series of product videos... one for each of the 10 or so different calipers that I make. [br]They will all look kindof the same... they're mainly for embedding in shop pages and so on. Because they'll all look kindof the same, I've made a separate youtube channel so subscribers don't lose their minds with boredom. https://youtu.be/qvXxBQCkF30…

Golden Ratio Poster

I've been tinkering with movies etc today, and (while I was waiting for things to render) played about with one of the stills and made a poster. I don't know if I'll ever turn it into an actual poster. If anyone is interested though - let me know how big you want it, and I'll do some costings etc. Alternatively,…
