Silver Decagram by Kittenpants Silver Decagram by Kittenpants
Okay, I've got the decagram cast in pewter already in my gallery, but the exciting thing about this (other than the fact that it's cast in silver) is that I just took this photo in my BRAND NEW HOMEMADE LIGHTBOX.  EVIL Laughter! 

I made it out of masonite with leather hinges (so it can be folded flat when not in use).  It has tissue-paper diffusers on the sides, but I'm hoping to replace them with frosted acrylic, and maybe put in frames for sliding in colored gels for fancypants special effects.  It's been two days of jigsaws, exacto blades, spraypaint, and superglue, but I actually got to test drive it today, and am excited, therefore I am spamming my watchlist.  ;)

It still takes a lot of GIMP tweaking to get the color balance and levels right.  I'm sure a lot of that is me not knowing how to use my camera correctly, but for a first try, I'm very happy with this image.

::EDIT::  Hey, I just figured out that Color / Auto / White Balance is my friend.  I knew there had to be something buried in the menus to do what I wanted, I just had to mash all the buttons to find it.  Uploaded the new not-green-and-pink file.  Yay GIMP!
