I’m a big fan of pictures of things. Professional photos can be good, even great, but sometimes their sterility removes context, scale and real world helpfulness. I like pictures of stuff out in the wild or at the very least with something as a reference.
A recent example of this is a littlebits order that I received. I’ve purchased some of that gear with the goal of making some homebrewing-helpful contraptions using this
electronics toy rapid prototyping platform. Anyway, I ordered some toggle switches and at first glance on the website, they appeared standard size. When I got them and they were, for lack of a better word,… little. Closer examination of the stock image makes that clear, but on a quick first look I thought they were larger.
We recently held a FastFerment Conical Fermenter Giveaway. Entry to the contest was gained by submitting a picture of what you received or purchased for yourself around the Holidays.
I thought it would be fun to share some of those. So, here are some of the pictures we received along with reviews (when available). These include the Twitter handle of all who entered.
Thanks for entering the contest and for sharing these photos! Note that these represent only a part of the ones we received. More than I wanted to include in a single post. Look for a Volume II in the near future. Do you have a photo, deal tip or process tip you want to share? Get it on over to me. You can use the Submit a Tip Link or send me an email.
