Disjointed jottings from the Deadman's desk
Those of you who keep an eye on the website will have hopefully noticed a new uniformity to the frame photo's now I am the proud owner of a mini-studio. It all sounds very posh and I love the look on people's faces when I tell them I have one, little do they know that is really equates to a large white polyester box with a back drop in it. Although simple in design and execution it is very effective at evening the light out and making the object that you are photographing stand out. I can highly recommend the use of one to anyone needing to sell small items online.
On a more exotic note, those of you who love the more glamorous and elegant elements of 1950's design can see a number of 1950's Anodised Aluminium Tura frames at Dead Men's Spex. These are a set of salesman's samples that had been locked away in the demo box for over 50 years and are really indicative of all that was good with "the atomic age".
