    Re: Computer Technology

    One more before Christmas. Tore open an old IDE hard drive to get a photo of the platter and drive head. Tried to add some interest in the reflection off the mirrored surface. I'll probably try some different angles after the holidays.



    This was a tough one as the magnification was a bit over 1:1 and the effective aperture was f/128. I popped the flash 4 times at full power to get enough light.

    I am thinking the first three are really nice, but the other ones I feel (highly personal) have more of a "documentation" feel - I am just guessing it has something to do with the less dramatic (flatter?) light.

    Keep on going, it'll be interesting to see what you come up with.

    Thanks for your thoughts Jimi.

    I am picking up as much old computer detritus as I can fit in my car over the holidays from storage so I'll have lots to work with in the new year . So I'll definitely be working on this project more then.

    Know all of that "old" technology. Great stuff and well put on photo. I really love those old boards with their PTH components and very strict placement and routing.

    Somewhere down the strata of detritus in my place there must be a box with in it: a 286, 386, 387, Pentium, PentiumPro, Pentium II (in cartridge form) and an Athlon. Guess if I delve deep enough I can get one of those running. The PDP 11/73 has gone to a museum.

    The 11/73 was running RSTS, RSX, or Unix?

    Commodore 64 and 5.25" floppy drive / disks:



    This C64 was found in my grandfather's attic. Not sure why he had it. Unfortunately it's an off-brand floppy drive and I don't have the matching monitor. Perhaps it's time for eBay. This shot was inspired by Ken Lee's images of typewriters...trying to focus on the keys and light reflecting off the surface of the keyboard, along with a pleasing composition. Perhaps you can tell from these images that I like diagonal lines .

    Linhof Master Technika, 150mm G-Claron set at f/26 or so, one light from my Speedotron kit up high and to the right with an umbrella popped 3 times at full power, Efke 100 dev'd in Pyrocat 1:1:100 @ 70F for 9 minutes

    Looks nice Bryan. More tonality in the LF image. I prefer the composition of the MF image. Both are good.

    Thanks for your thoughts! I think I can roughly match the composition by cropping in just a tad. Like you say, I think the tonality here is much better.
