Last year, I had started to photograph different vegetables and nature during the summer. However, I lost interest. I was photographing them on what is called a Porta-Trace.
When I was coming home early today from Dunkin Donuts, I noticed that the beautiful flowers from a huge catalpa tree well starting to fall. The catalpa tree usually flowers about 4-6 weeks after our Canadian Maple tree does. That rekindled my interest for today's instalment.
The Porta-Trace is a light table that emits light through an opaque and thick plexiglass surface. When you place a page that you want to copy along with some tracing paper, the light goes through the 2 pages, allowing you to trace the subject.
I had a small one that I used to use for viewing slides, but that became obsolete with the digital camera.
However, it does make a good light source for certain types of professional or even amateur photography.
