I found a scruffy bit of paper Sunday evening on which was written Woody inside camera painting picture. I almost threw it away but decided that I should see what I could produce.

I remembered too that it was inspired by the camera imps created by Terry Pratchett - I really should re-read his books Smile

So whilst doing the MNC I thought I'd rummage in a few boxes, throw a few bits together and see what happens.

Thanks Smile it took longer to set up than planned as the silly man kept falling out of the camera!

Why on earth I gave it the title I did I don't know - surely I could have thought of something better.......

Does he not have a jar of green light to complete the magic trio for his light painting?

Welcome Back Woody!

Great photo Al! I love Discworld books and this just made me laugh! Without even seeing your 'blurb' I thought of the camera imps!

You now have no excuse to read every Discworld book, best read in order!

Great image I must have the same going on in my camera - would explain why my pictures never match what I saw. Not sure i can blame a woody for a bad picture though Grin

That's absolutely brilliant, I remember the camera imps now... I just love the thinking behind this and the concept. I will not nitpick and say anything about the texture IMHO needing a little more blending.... oops

Thanks everyone - glad you appreciate my efforts Smile It was admittedly rather thrown together - a proper plant stand for the pot would be a good idea for a startSmile I was going to have another wooden man in front reclining on a sofa in front of the camera but could I find another small man? Nope - they were all downstairs for some reason.

Now I think about it a classic Victorian style portrait setup might work - chair, aspidistra, heavy curtain behind - I reckon I could manage that.

He's got lots of jars in his paint bucket Roy - just not enough room to put them anywhere and I also must try to find his pallette - which is doubtless buried in one of the wooden man accessory boxes.

I'll give it another go and do a better job with the texture next time............ Arrietty Tongue

Great Iconograph.


'Good Mornink' said Otto. 'Do not be movink please, you are making a good pattern of light and shade.'

He kicked out the legs of the tripod, peered into the iconograph and raised a salamander in its cage.

'Lookink this vay please - '

Click

WHOOMPH

' - oh shee-yut!'

Dust floated to the floor. In the midst of it a twist of black ribbon floating down. There was a moment of shocked silence. Then Vimes said 'What the hell happened just then?'

'Too much flash I think.' said William

Thanks again everyone Smile I have another one that might be uploaded tomorrow - one more planned after that with any luck (though I need to sort out some suitable props for that one).

Thanks for the snippet Scaramanga - I must settle down with some Pratchett again once I've finished the Cussler I'm currently reading.....

I'm reading Night Probe at the moment - one of the Dirk Pitt series. I shall keep an eye out for The Truth and give it a go.
