Have to admit -35C weather is a great motivation to stay inside and get some work done!Henry's graveyard of burnt out bulbs surround the ceiling light...


There's some crazy dust on the lens, seems to jump around a bit sometimes, and the dust blower did nothing - any suggestions? I'll probably stop by the camera shop tomorrow to see what I can find.

That shot looks fantastic, Emmy. Looking at it first glance, I thought it was of you working on your set! Looking forward to this film.

This pictures are really teasing... so much mood... It all looks so professionally made, and sometimes takes a second look to see, that this is all 'just' a set with a puppet. Amazing !

(^ dust on the lense causing auto focus to get confused?
I love those happy accidents, but if you MUST be rid of them , get a can of compressed air.

wait I think trappedgoldfish put up one of my old experiments with straight live camera ( a mini vhs cam corder: now defunct) where I tried to USE the focus problem to an advantage.

Dust on lens...

This sounds funny, but it works;

Breathe on the lens and wipe with a piece of cotton flannel.

If you don't like that idea, try 91% isopropyl alcohol and a lens cloth.

I've even used the cleaner you get for eyeglasses.
