So I came across an old viewmaster slide upstairs today – I’m pretty sure the actual viewmasters we used to own, plus all the other reels were given away years ago… I guess I may have hoarded this one as it was my favourite.If you hold it up to the window the pictures are still bright and clear – Rainbow Brite has these lovely solid rainbow colours in between dark indigo and grey shades.
However photographing clearly has proven a we bit more difficult… The clear OHP type panels also show anything behind them so hold them up to the window – you get trees. Put it on the table – brown woodgrain. I held it up in front of a blank white photoshop page and it was really clear… Until I photographed it and the monitor flicker showed through. Have resorted to white paper, but it doesn’t show the brightness of the true colours; I guess I should make a lightbox. Then there is the fact I didn’t bring my decent camera w me this visit so am stuck w iphone snaps – It just cant get all the close up detailing in focus, So I guess I’ll just have to wait till I’m back in Melbs… Unless anyone else has a way smarter and prob. way more obvious solution?
