This post has been in the back of my mind for a while now and I figured why not jump in and start my ramblings. Ever since I've discovered linear lighting, I haven't looked back. I've settled into a workflow with which I'm pretty comfortable (I do find myself tweaking it of course) and I figured I’d assemble my heap of random notes into something coherent...kind of. It might help someone get on the road to making some of those Ikea like shots.
This weekend is going so great! It all started when I gutted my PC to do some proper dusting, which is a labour of love, every fan blade, every nook and cranny is cleaned. I reinstalled Windows, which is such a fun and exciting process, I mean who wouldn't be overjoyed with such a task. O.k that last bit was sarcastic. Had no problems, she was running fine, installed drivers, security software, some common utility software, you know the stuff that gets a new install rolling. I had to step away for a while so I powered her down. The case is still open and sitting on my desk, I turn it on and seconds later, a plume of acrid smoke comes rushing out at me, I shut it down and yanked the power cord so fast that I didn't realize I was shrieking wtf in a pretty steady stream. I was mortified and kinda relieved at the same time, it seems to have come only from the power supply but who knows if it damaged anything else. I tested it (the power supply) and it was shot to shit, oh well. I already ordered a new one from Newegg, but I'm stuck on my iPad for now yay!
