Thank you to John Purlia for contributing the following.  Check out John’s site Wind-up Dreams and Vinyl Nightmares too! To the right is one such vintage album find, French Pastry by Eddie Barclay & His Orchestra, released by Mercury Records in 1958.
Web sites dedicated to vintage vinyl collecting can be found all over the web with more blogs popping up all the time sharing the best, wildest and most exotic that vinyl has to offer. Ideally, the task of digitizing your vinyl treasures would be as simple as laying your album covers onto a scanner bed to capture the spectacular artwork.
I began photographing my LP collection a couple of years ago as a means of building a database of images I could quickly reference when planning new photos.
Over the past couple of years I’ve shot close to 500 images of album covers, and (for the most part) the images I’ve captured look pretty great.
To get started, let’s learn a little from a set of photos that don’t at all do justice to the great cover imagery they mean to capture. For some reason, people think they can take a good photo of an album cover if they lay the cover flat on the ground and shoot it from overhead. Again, as with the previous Don’t Do This shot, the flash is turned on, just to reinforce that you should definitely not use a flash when photographing album covers. A variation of the flat-on-the-floor technique is the flat-on-the-table technique, see to the right.
Enough space in front for a tripod and “distortion elimination distance” (4 to 6 feet is good). I use the sunroom off my bedroom (formerly, an open balcony when my house was first built 80+ years ago) for my Album Cover Studio. If you can’t use natural light, select a room with as much artificial light as possible, and remember to set the white balance on your rig accordingly. Though you can’t see it in the photo, the background mat is propped up using a standard metal library bookend, which also serves to hold the cover as vertical as possible.
Setting the album cover at a nice 90° vertical angle is essential to eliminating many of the perspective problems we saw in the set of “bad cover shots.” Up and down perspective becomes skewed as your camera moves below or above the album’s vertical centerline, while left and right skewing is introduced as the camera moves right or left of the horizontal center. Luckily, we have marvelous inventions like rulers, tape measures and T-squares to assist our lying eyes. We can find the vertical center of a typical cover by placing an album at the edge of our workspace, and measuring the distance from the floor to the top of the cover. So, in this example, the height of my tripod—from floor to the midpoint of my camera lens—is measured out to be exactly 34 ? inches. Well, yes, I did, that is the correct standard, but in practice you’ll find that most older covers seem to be 12 ?” square.
Note: If you’re using a camera that supports auto focusing points, you can get really fancy by placing rubber bands around a test album at the horizontal and vertical middles. Close may be good for the amorous ways of nature, but it introduces lots of problems when photographing square images. Imagine, for a second, that you have super wide angle lens and place your camera one inch away from the center of the record album.
Ah, you may be one inch from the center, but geometry tells us that you’re now also 6 inches from the edges, and 8 inches from the corners. Note: You definitely don’t want to use digital zoom when photographing album covers, or pretty much anything else except for spy surveillance photos that are intentionally all pixelated and blurry to raise “reasonable doubt” when you present your “clandestine mob meeting” photos in court. Getting back to our example, turn on live display mode and zoom to a reasonable focal length (as above, the 3x level for my SD1000). Note: Feel free to use a T-square, a fancy laser level, equal lengths of string, or whatever other trick you may have up your sleeve to remain on the centerline.
My cover photos are all shot in Manual mode with the flash turned off, and I pretty much allow the camera to do everything else, though I sometimes increase the exposure time if the light is lower than desired. Note: When cropping covers like the one above, where the original image has been pasted just inside the edges of the cardboard sleeve leaving a border around the image, you may find that the edges of the crop tool will cut into that border, resulting in thin slanted “slivers” around an otherwise square album cover. I was looking for some collaboration on a few of my FLORA and “FLORA?” LP covers – and naturally came to your site to find a lot of his covers in 1 place. After that research I looked at (I believe it was your “blogroll”) and went to the article on record cover restoration.
You (or blogger) talked about separating out inner elements and -after fixing background- dropping back-in these pixel-doctored text sections.
INSTEAD (since you or blogger were OK with boldly going in and making wholesale changes to these poor images – in service of a return to the original look of the art) the answer is to REMOVE the text – and RETYPE it. Here is THE KEY what most folks don’t know they have: PHOTOSHOP has a gizmo in the toolbar (should be an icon toward the right-of-center area on your toolbar that looks like a stylized “page”). If you would like, I can e-mail you how to use ICE to join your scans seamlessly (and easily). I remaster all my vinyl into digital computer files, and then also have hard copy CD’s as backups. While I do really respect all the effort and precise direction and explanation that the writer of this article has put forward, in my humble view, I think scanning is the way to go. I tried some of your suggestions, but the photo finisher loused up the end product by overblowing the prints (their standard procedure) and cropping off the top and bottom of the covers. Thank you so much, really great to read all this, feel encouraged now to get my collection photographed! This article above contains a lot of sensible practical advice I am sure I will find invaluable. It seems a shame that there doesn’t seem to be a free web archive where good quality LP cover artwork could be uploaded for the benefit of all interested parties, especially as the survival of that artwork may otherwise disappear. I’m interested in shooting the vinyl itself, on account of the all-important etchings on the vintage pressing. I agree that shooting photo’s with an inexpensive digital camera is MUCH better AND faster than scanning all those covers. What about photographing at an slight angle (and at a higher resolution than your final image file will be) and performing a “perspective correction” and downconvert the resolution? Any suggestions on how to eliminate reflections when taking pics of a cover that still has the original shrink in place?
If you’re thinking of giving Polaroids a try, I hope this post will help and inspire you, and that you will soon be as addicted as we are! Great post, Kirstin – I wish someone had explained the exposure dial to me like this when I started shooting Polaroids last year! Thanks so much for this post, I will refer back to it in the coming days once I receive my SX-70. I’ve just bought the one step 600 and after trying all 8 films, all but one were a disaster.
Hey, when I take my polaroid shots, a weird, dark, possibly overexposed (I say this because I do a lot of traditional darkroom photography, and overexposed 35mm film has a similar appearance to this) blotch of film remains at the top edge of the photo.
I just got a Polaroid 600 One Step for free and I’m planning on giving it to my best friend as a wedding gift to use in her wedding.
Can I ask where in London is servicing you SX-70 I have found one white SX-70 model 2 in the loft but don’t want to waste money on film until I know it works.

How to Take Care Of Your Body and Get Rid OfOld Acne ScarsHave you been having acne break outs which leave behindmany scars that you cannot stand? Clipping is a handy way to collect and organize the most important slides from a presentation. When shopping for vintage high waisted items, figuring out your size can be very confusing!
Under the seat is a trip wire (B) that is connected a short rod (C) with a hole through the center of it. To remove the old trip wire, unscrew the bolt at C, pull the wire out of both ends of the rod, then unthread it through the slot at E.
Get A Replacement from LaZBoy: Contact a Lazyboy showroom and ask the location of a service center. I recently had a request (see first message at the bottom of this page) asking if it was possible to change the handle to the left side of the chair.
This seems to indicate that the option for having the handle on either side might be built into the design of the La-Z-Boy frame. With that said, if you, or someone you know is wanting to try it, this is how I would suggest. First, get a flashlight , turn the chair on its back and thoroughly look the chair mechanism over. Follow the instructions on these links to take the recliner apart and take the backrest off the recliner. The goal is to free up the square rod so that you can pull it out from the side of the chair. Alternatively, (I'm not sure this is any easier) instead of taking the metal rod all the way out, you may be able to just push the rod through to the other side. Push the rod through to the left side so that it protrudes out the same distance as it was on the right side. Measure the distance between the existing cotter pin holes and mark the same distance from the other side. After the holes have been cut and drilled, push the rod back through the new hole into the middle of the chair.
Carefully and slowly push the square rod back through the same bracket that it was removed from. After you have the rod and handle put back in place, use your pictures as a guide and reattach any brackets or springs that were removed. When you have all this part put back together, stand the chair frame up on its feet and operate the handle. When you have the chair mechanisms put back in place, go back to step 4 and follow the instructions in reverse. One of the great conveniences of most Lazyboy recliners is that the backrest can be easily unlatched and removed removed from the base of the chair. This is really helpful in making the chair lighter and more manageable when you want to move the chair or to transport it to another location.However, if the Lazyboy is being transported with the mechanism of the backrest in the unlatched position, the back can fly off the chair and be lost.
Also, even assuming that you could get a replacement of that mechanism from Lazyboy, making a functioning backrest is more complicated than just cutting and gluing wood together. I would suggest that you get on Craig's List and try to find an old Lazyboy recliner of any condition.
You best bet to try to match your existing fabric is to go back to the store where you bought the chair.
The filling in the backrest is general foam, sometimes it also has a polyester batting around the foam base.
Assuming that you have an old backrest, just take it off the frame and take the cover apart to use as a guide.
It is very difficult even for a professional to try to fix the zigzag springs from the bottom of the recliner or the bottom of the seat. When you have the seat out of the recliner and loose from the hinges, then take and all the padding off the seat. If you don't have a local supplier for the 9 gauge zigzag springs, here are a couple places that you could get the springs. You will also need some EK clips (No Sag Spring Clips), such as these that attach the springs to the wood frame, and some EK nails, such as these. Once you receive the springs you may still have to cut them to size with a pair of bolt-cutters. The situation, you have a lazyboy recliner and you need to move it.  Because of their unique recliner mechanism, this proceedure will only work on newer Lazyboy recliners. After you have unlatched both sides, then you can use your screwdriver to gently pry up both sides of the backrest.
Yes, that’s 53 years ago! Sadly, they just don’t release covers like this anymore, and the world is surely a sadder place.
My own humble collection is shared on several sites, with galleries available on Facebook, Flickr, and MobileMe.


Is there a vast database somewhere akin to Amazon or the iTunes Store where seemingly every album cover ever released is available for download? Unfortunately, as very few commercial scanners feature a platen that will accommodate the 12? horizontal and vertical dimensions of a record album, your next best bet is to set up a makeshift Album Cover Photo Studio and shoot photos of your collection. As many of you know, my fine art work uses vintage LPs, books, and other printed material as backdrops for the three dimensional scenes I build and photograph. With my LPs stored in iPhoto, I’m able to open the Record Covers album, and leisurely flip through hundreds of covers as I consider whatever narrative theme I next wish to explore. Oh, sure, not every cover I’ve snapped is picture perfect (and I do plan on going back someday and correcting those anomalies), but the standards for snapping a nice web-friendly picture of an album cover is somewhat below MOMA-quality photography. When I see photos like these I imagine the son or daughter of a vinyl aficionado liquidating dad’s lovingly cared for collection, one album at a time, as if they were snow globes at a Waikiki giftshop. To the right is a photo typical of internet auction sites, where cover art photography often takes on the feel of a slipshod assembly line: set ‘em up, snap the shutter, next! We’re now ready to begin talking about “how to take decent photos of record albums” (and thank you for reading this far). This is a perfect spot for shooting album covers, as I get lots of natural light and have a low bookshelf that’s just the right height for setting up covers and shooting them with my Canon SD1000.
A tripod will keep your camera steady and, moreover, guarantee that every shot you take is aimed at the exact same point. Basically, you want your lens to be square to the very center of the album cover, which in most cases is 12 ??? inches square.
Then, simply subtract half the cover height and you have the distance from the floor to the center of your lens. As you pull the camera back from the center point, the angle to the edges and corners becomes smaller and smaller, and the picture you take will become, well, more album-like, with straight edges and nice 90° corners. Digital zoom is evil; it’s like taking an jpeg of an postage stamp and blowing it up to the size of a building. I use the seam between the boards of my hardwood floors, which are perpendicular to the bookshelf workspace. It’s much easier to move the right side of the cover back a smidgen, than it is to move the tripod—especially if the album cover is being supported by a moveable object (like a bookend) as opposed to a wall or window.
The camera is far enough away to reduce distortion, it’s at the right height, and the lens is pointing at the very center of the album cover. Depending on how well you were able to level your camera and keep it square to the cover, you may wish to apply a small amount of straightening so that text and vertical images aren’t tilting out of control. Don’t worry about cropping your image absolutely square; few album covers measure precisely 12 ??? inches along every side. If you do, then any properly installed photoshop utilizes ALL fonts that are in your library. It will be RIGHT in front of you simply displaying the ONE (1) word: “crisp” or “none” or “smooth” etc.
There seems little point making lossless digital archives of the LP without doing justice to the artwork too.
I have never been that into photography but your hints and tips are just the job for a novice like me.
Any tips on photographing the actual vinyl to highlight nice clean and (hopefully) unscratched surfaces? Store the film in the fridge. Once you have bought your camera and film, remember that the film should be stored in the fridge before you use it.
In an age of digital perfection, there’s something peculiarly satisfying about getting a really great exposure from a mechanical, chemical system. My gut feeling is to make the image lighter, either by sliding the exposure wheel towards the light side or use flash! Polaroids are great cameras and completely magical to see your shot come right out of the camera.
Despite the high cost of the film, once that first frame ejects from the camera it’s easy to get hooked.
I’m planning to buy Polaroid 660 soon, i just want to know if the photos would be as clear as i hope for it to be and not blurry or anything like that. So yes, the film costs more than the camera and the first package of 600 film I used without a filter was kinda sketchy for a first time user, but this helped for sure. I’ve attempted cleaning the rollers, which seemed to help some, but it did not resolve the problem completely.
It almost looks as if the photo is subtly divided into thirds, with the left and right portions resembling each other in color and value while the middle portion seems to have lighter, more saturated color.
I have just bought a Polaroid 600 on eBay without doing prior research (yes not very wise!) now I’m reading that the 600 film takes 30mins to develop – is this right? I didn’t know that the 600 had a long developing time, I thought all Polaroids had an instant developing time once it was spit out of the camera?
Well it is time you startedtrying to fade away all those ugly scars so you can regainyour smooth skin tone! We've created a hopefully easy-to-follow guide to measuring and shopping for this style. The rocking mechanism is designed so that when the handle is pulled the footrest comes up and the recliner is locked from rocking.
There is a square rod that runs underneath the recliner from one side of the recliner to the other. As you read each step, look at each step of the instructions that corresponds with the actual chair. If for some reason you can pull it out, carefully inspect the full length of the rod to see if anything is still attached to it.
Be careful to line up the position of the handle the same as it was taken out from the right side. If you might switch the handle back to its original location some day, then you only need a temporary covering.
If you try to build a new backrest one problem is that when you lost the backrest you also lost the upper part of the metal Lazyboy mechanism, which is attached to the backrest. Depending upon the style of the chair, The foam in some of the Lazyboy backrests have been molded to shape, so to duplicate it the foam needs to be cut and glued to shape. Then it will be comparatively easy to replace the springs from the top (Assuming that you have access to some new 9 gauge zigzag springs (also called arc springs). The seat springs in a typical Lazboy recliner are approximately 19" long, but check the actual size of the springs in your laZboy. To see it, look under the front of your lazyboy here (look clear up to the bottom of the seat):Click on picture to enlarge. Put the tip of the flat screwdriver under the downward pointing end of the lock level and lift the lever all the way up so that it will be pointing upward. Once upon a time, record and department stores were filled with beautifully cheesy covers like French Pastry, printed in all their 12? square glory on glossy cardboard sleeves. This is a lot easier than flipping through crate after crate of poly-bagged record albums that line one wall of my studio. Here, the record is propped up on a table and leaning against a wall, with the photo shot standing a couple of feet away. Unless you have a super fancy tripod that provides for overhead shots, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to hold the camera still at a perfect 90° angle. Plus, just think of how ridiculous you’ll look straddling over the record shooting down between your legs. Getting the lens perpendicular to the surface is even more difficult when leaning forward over a table, so most aspiring album photogs end up standing beside the table and shooting down at an angle of roughly 60°. Just like you don’t want yellow pictures of real people, you don’t want yellow pictures of the ultra hip people on your incredibly cool record albums. In fact, I rarely use my studio when photographing records; it’s just too much trouble to pull out the light tent, the floodlights, the high-tech space-age tripod, the “nice” camera, etc…. As you can see above, once the work area and tripod is set, album covers can easily be shuffled in and out of the “studio” without having to recompose every shot. I leave my pro tripod in the studio, and instead use a simple, 20 buck tripod with a built in level that I retired from my fine art work a couple of years back.
Again, assuming a width of 12 ? inches, the horizontal center will be  6 ??? inches from the left edge. Next, think about all those street-level photos you see of buildings, where vertical walls seem to shoot off at diagonals towards the corners of the picture frame.
On my Canon SD1000, I zoom to 3x, which is the optical limit for my camera before going into digital. Slowly pull the tripod back along the horizontal center line, being careful to keep the camera parallel to the plane of the album cover. But before you shoot that vinyl envy photo, carefully check the LCD for any unwanted glare or reflections.
The best you can hope to do is keep every corner of the Crop tool inside the dimensions of the album cover. If you do not, these fonts are easy to get, often free – from VERY safe, professional font-houses or their agents. It easily gets to look like a spiky, wet tabby cat, especially on (and most of it IS) small type. If I were to scan or photograph these jackets rather than use the image from the internet, do you know if I can use them in this book without violating copyright laws.
But figuring out how to get the best from old Polaroid cameras (which have been gathering dust in attics for years) and new kinds of film (made by Impossible Project) is far from easy.
The folding SX-70 type is a design classic—its elegant design inspired Steve Jobs—which means the cameras are now cult collectibles. Impossible Project recommend letting it warm up for an hour before putting it in your camera.
Unlike original Polaroid film, the Impossible Project film needs to be kept in the dark for a few minutes after exposure. Trial and error will always be part of the charm of Polaroid shooting but these tips will surely be helpful to anyone getting into the game. Very reassuring to a new user to know that their first shots might not all work, I was devastated when some of mine didn’t and like Jenny, found it odd to turn the dial to dark when it was light and vice versa. The seller does say that it is in great condition but that they do not know if it works so it was a risky purchase and after reading your post it’s quite possible I will have to send it out for further servicing. I’m wishing that there was a forum or I had other enthusiasts close by who could give me feedback as to what is happening when it goes wrong. Luckily, I had several Polaroid experts on hand to give me advice, but now I have a place to come back to for reference! My shots tend to have a pattern in their resulting quality: the regular color of the photograph is interrupted by a lighter stripe in the middle.
What would be the best Polaroid and film to get for quicker development, I wanted it for my wedding guest book.
First photo was cream with brown blob (after standing still for a few years maybe it just needed a start-up, second photo was fully cream coloured and nothing else. The good news is that there is a lot youcan do to treat acne scars and in this article I am going to sharewith you some of these tips and hope that you will use themand be happy with the results you get.There is a lot of hype on the internet and TV these days aboutskin care products. I turned it upside down and thoroughly investigated the mechanisms, the handle and the other parts of the underneath. When you have the recliner all taken apart you will be glad to have the pictures to guide you in putting everything back together. The handle is attached to this rod, which also connects and controls the operation of the recliner mechanisms.
Take a close look at where the rod ends, and the direction of the rod to estimate where to mark where to drill the hole. You will want to put the handle in the same position when you put the rod back in on the left side. When the footrest is all the way up, the chair should be locked to prevent it from rocking. You can use a wooden medallion to cover the hole and use finishing nails to hold the medallion in place. Some of your choices are to dispose of the chair, to try to purchase a new backrest for the chair, or (if you are good at woodworking) to buiild a new backrest for the chair, or ????
If they are not able order more fabric, then you will probably have setting for a complimentary fabric.


When you have the pins of both sides taken out, you should be able to lift the front of the seat up high.
But today—with most music sold digitally or on compact disk—all you get is a teeny tiny jpeg or a skimpy little booklet crammed into a 5? plastic case. You won’t find French Pastry in iTunes and the image that appears on Amazon falls into the “don’t do this” category we’ll discuss in a moment. Just a few simple tips and techniques using a point’n’shoot camera to take photos every bit as nice as the covers themselves.
And even with the aforementioned super fancy tripod, the camera (unless your lens is also super fancy) is likely going to be too close to the record to avoid excessive optical distortion like the dreaded barrel effect. There is also a bank of windows to the right, so I usually shoot covers mid morning when the sun is directly over the house and not yet spilling in through the windows.
So, with an album in place on the “stage,” measure 6 ??? inches from the left edge of the album, set a mark on the base mat, and align the tripod so that the camera lens is centered on this mark. When the autofocus point is dead center over the crossing point—bam!—you’ve found the horizontal center of the album cover.
If the right edge looks a little taller than the left, then the right side of the lens is a little closer to the cover than the left.
Some of the very best album covers frequently sport high gloss covers that will produce glare or reflect light in unwanted ways. As it happens I am quite conversant in that also and would like to pass on at least this one HUGELY time-saving tip – that also yields incredibly better results. Get them*†* I can help …OK, NOW: using the matching font at correct size, retype what you see in the original, into the correct position of your working document (basic denuded, color corrected background area of cover – as already explained in the blog) – of course you can fine-tune POSITION and SIZE at any point in the process before merging the layer (or before ‘rasterizing’ the type if your photoshop demands that. LOOK at all the stuff there you can do to make YOUR lettering EXACTLY like the lettering on the LP cover! Of course it is even MORE exhausting and mind-numbing to re-fix that – and virtually impossible once you’ve rebuilt everything back into place – and AFTER a merge? I have looked everywhere to get permission to use them and I have not yet found the owner of each copyright.
After several false starts and much heartache, I feel I’m on track, with more than a little help from my friends Christy, Debra, Lindsey and Meghan. The chunkier 600 series cameras are easier to get hold of and are a good place to start your Polaroid adventure. I was happy to find one that also came with accessories… tripod mount, self-timer, leather case and electronic flash. I’ve sought help from other sites, but no one seems to mention this malfunction…any ideas?
Photos after that were fine, not over exposed, good colouring, sharp and clear but …. The problem with most people is using lotsof commercially over hyped brands thinking that they willhave a synergistic effect and solve their scar problem quickly.You need to know that the most basic and the simplestproducts are usually the best. Obagi Blue Peel [ about 400 USD per session ]Obagi however is overhyped, its only TCA [30%] plus a bluedye and procaine [anesthesia] so its less painful. When researching, we came across inconsistent findings, but used the most common sizes and conversions in the following charts. That short rod is mounted on a square bar (F), on which is mounted the handle on the outside of the arm. It seems to me that it might be possible to change the handle to the left side, but I have a DISCLAMER: unless a person is mechanically inclined and used to figuring things out, I would caution a person from trying it himself.
Among the other pictures, make sure you get pictures of the side of the chair with the handle, both when the footstool is up and when it is down. This rod needs to be taken completely out of the chair on right side and turned around so that it comes in from the left side of the chair.
Also, take measure how far the handle is from the chair, so you will know how far to push the rod in from the left side. Once all the pins and any other attaching things have been loosened, that rod should just pull out. OR, you can find some material that matches the old fabric and hand sew a patch over the hole. Trying to find an exact match is very difficult, but sometimes you might be able to find it, or something close.
Still, visual treasures of the past wait patiently in thrift shops and garage sales, in dusty attics and dingy basements. In fact, some of the very best strange-but-true garage sale finds can’t be found anywhere on the web. Some auction sellers try to pretty-up the flat-on-the table technique with their own variations: flat-on-the-bed or flat-on-an-ugly-quilt. Use whatever tricks you have up your sleeve: gray cards, controlled lighting, camera presets… just don’t post yellow people to the web! All you have to do is keep the camera steady, set it far enough from the album to avoid optical distortion, and aim right at the very center of the cover. With so much bright natural light coming into the room I’m able to use the auto white balance setting on my point’n’shoot, and rarely have to make white balance adjustments in post processing. Because it’s easier to fold up and carry to the spot I use as a makeshift album cover studio, and I’m not ultra paranoid about vibrations when photographing album covers. Easier said than done, since we haven’t yet talked about the distance between the album cover and the tripod. From closeup, the angle between the camera and the building’s edges is very wide, approaching 90° as you’re about to press that expensive lens to the granite facade.
You can see this effect through the LCD display: the album may be horizontally centered in the frame, but the top and bottom edges on one side will appear slightly taller than the edges on the opposite side.
You could eliminate glare with a circular polarizing filter (and I will applaud your dedication), but remember—we’re leaving all the fancy equipment in the studio, and you’re unlikely to have a filter available for your point’n’shoot. Same leading and line spread (tight, loose, open or even W   a   y       o   p   e   n, as some titles are done.
After a few minutes I take a peek at the image, and after 10 minutes or so I transfer it to a box or an envelope where it can continue to develop in the dark.
Also, I find that Polaroid images are better if they are lit from the front (sun behind you). So we’ll see when the Impossible Project film arrives whether or not I got a sweet deal. When the handle is used, the trip wire pushes against a locking bar (D) to engage a set of notches (A), thus locking the recliner from rocking.
As you make the bends,  keep the wire flat on a table so that you can make all the bends so that the wire lays flat when finishehd.
You could very easily ruin your recliner, such as taking it all apart and then not being able to get it back together.
You will need these pictures when you put the chair back together.) Use my instructions as an APPROXIMATE guide, realize that what you actually will need to do may at times be different than the instructions. OR, if you can get some more of the fabric that is on the recliner, you can also replace the fabric on the outside of the arm. But best of all, they often feature wholesome looking gals of decades past acting as naughty and provocative as the standards of the day would bear.
Vinyl collecting is on the rise as new generations of music fans discover the undeniable appeal of LP album covers. So… if you plan on sharing your cover collection with the world, it’s up to you to create a decently postable image that can be shown off with pride!
The arrangement is also nice, as there is space to the left for a stack of yet-to-be-photographed records, and it’s quick and easy to move records from the stack to the “stage” and off to the right to be “re-sleeved” and filed away. But until you get your carefully eyeballed photos before the rigid constraints of the Straighten and Crop tools on your computer, you don’t really know how bad we are at judging fine angles and distances. Compounding this unfortunate human reality, the closer your camera stands to a square, flat object, the more pronounced seemingly minor miscalculations will appear in the resulting image. For now, just note the center mark and place the tripod as close to the album cover as possible with the lens aligned with the center mark.
As you pull the camera back, the angle becomes increasingly small, approaching zero as the building fades off into the horizon. I typically eliminate unwanted sources of light by shadowing glare spots with additional black mats or cardboard card.
It’s like a message to my former self, and I hope you will find it helpful if you are thinking of giving Polaroids a try. Here are the five tips I wish I had known at the start of my adventure with Polaroids! It will only remove the upperepidermal layer and will make you produce more oil that leadsto more breakout and irritation. Tea treeoil soap is natural and cleans better than other soaps because itdoesnt dry out your skin. Also, Although I know Lazyboys fairly well, and I think that this will work, I have no guarantees that it will actually work.
Move the handle up a number of times and down, and watch how that square metal rod controls the movements of the other mechanisms. Maybe so, but hopefully the tips below will prove useful in improving the quality of your shots. Or (since I use natural light), I just wait until a time when the sun is in a different spot in the sky. When we go on holiday I like to lay them out to make a gradually expanding collage, which I then shoot with a digital camera. Avoid dermatologicalprocedures that only remove superficial skin layer such asdermabrasion and fractional lasers.The best way to deal with the entire skin layer is not viathermal heat but rather, chemical heat. If you use soap that dries out yourskin, your skin will produce more oil and lead to blockedpores and more acne.Use Clean and Clear Persa-Gel 10 to treat your acne. If you have a digital camera, I would recomment that you take pictures of each piece as you take it apart. And as long as each cover is placed in the exact same spot, you’ll get a perfect photo every time.
I bought an SX-70 from a seller in the US, which meant paying extra postage and customs duty, but it was unreliable and I’m now having it serviced by a dealer in London.
And remember the film tends to work better between 15-25 degrees Celsius (55-77 degrees Fahrenheit) so in the winter months the colder film will tend to underdevelop. If you have a scanner you’ll want to scan your favourite Polaroids, both to share online in the short term and to preserve them for the long term. That is why chemicalpeeling [like obagi] are preferred and superior to anymechanical procedures. BUT: even a 2-finger monkey on the keys like me can get the cover-fix done MUCH faster and FAR cleaner, more EXACT by retyping – even if it’s Leonard Big-Wind Feather you are dealing with.
Impossible sells a cold clip  but the easiest solution is to use your body heat to warm up the freshly ejected image after exposure by tucking it into your armpit for a bit.
To further complicate things, each of these three types of camera uses a different kind of film, so check that you have the right sort of film for your camera before you hit the buy button.
You need PX-680 film to go with a 600 series camera, PX-70 with an SX-70 and PZ-600 film for a Spectra camera. Just to confuse matters, you can also use PX-680 in an SX-70 camera, but only if it has been fitted with a neutral-density filter. It may cause a slightburn if you are not careful.It should get rid of most acne within 3 days from the time youstart treating it.
So if you are starting out, go for a 600-series camera that has been properly tested and buy PX-680 film. And remember that you can get the equivalent black-and-white films for each of the cameras too! Drink more fresh fruits and vegetables.Cut out as much diary as possible (Diary is full of hormonesso try and avoid it) and leave the junk food alone.
