A Week in the Life of NJP
Cameras, Thieves, and Metrology
This past week has been filled with a variety of randomness, ranging from photographing legos to photographing old cameras to photographing probes that measure parts at a microscopic level! Read below and check out the photos to see what I get to do on a weekly basis at NJP.
The first photo represents a very happy moment for my film camera collection: The complete set of Kodak Duaflex Camera's (1-4). I decided to take a family portrait of them all together to celebrate the moment.
Next I helped Sarah, my fiancé, with one of her photography projects. She decided to set up a scene with Lego's to tell the story of a thief stealing treasure. With macro lens in hand, I snapped a photo of the scene as well, capturing the culprit with treasure in hand, and the remaining treasure behind him.
Last, I discovered an entirely new industry this past week that I did not realize existed: Metrology Solutions.
Metrology is the Scientific Study of Measurement
A local business in Fort Wayne, Apex Metrology Solutions specializes in Metrology Services and Products. I was asked to build their new website. The first step was to photograph what they do on a daily basis. I was given the chance to see their amazing machines at work. They use probes, such as the one in the third photo below, to measure the accuracy of parts made by manufacturers. These probes are about the size of a pencil erasier. The impressive part is HOW precise these machines are, measuring down to 100,000th of an inch (which is basically about 1/10th the thickness of a strand of hair). Expect an update soon on my Completed Projects Page where you can see more photos and their new website as well!
