Ok, enough testing, time to try making a transmission master for later reflection copying.
The layout is a simple 2-beam transmission.
I've had a bit of a hiatus due to work and playing with H2 setups. I've had such an itch to just make holograms that I've torn down the copy setup while I ponder what further optics I'll need and the geometry I can use on my small table. In the meantime I've made a few more holograms using a two-beam setup.
Today I made a two-beam hologram of my millennium Falcon model. It came out very bright with a light ratio of 3:1 rather than the old 8:1 of the single-beam. It also required my longest exposure to date of 26 seconds.
This morning I shot my Celtic Cross again with the two-beam setup. It's difficult to light correctly but is really bright.
After getting home at an ungodly hour of 1am I changed the setup to do a hologram of a Terminator I borrowed from a coworker. Upon waking up on Friday morning I shot him.
This one should have had a 60 second exposure but I hadn't programmed R2 to count that high and did a 40 second. It came out just fine with a bit more development.

This morning I did a couple of shots of Snoopy using the two-beam setup. Since I'd had good results with other subjects, I had to give old faithful some time in that setup.

Today I added a backdrop to the R2 model to see how that would look. It turned out pretty decent except that now it looks like R2 is levitating in front of a wall.
Later in the evening I added a floor to the setup so that R2 looks a tad more normal.
This morning I shot one hologram of R2 (sitting on the ground rather than floating in front of a wall) and followed up by shooting a new Celtic themed image.
Last night I added a C3PO model to the diorama with R2.
and this morning I shot a couple of holograms of that setup.
Theepio is blurry but he's interesting due to the large number of highlights on him.
It's not a great picture but this morning I shot the pig. This is a pig that went to Jamaica with us and will soon accompany us to Ireland. I thought he might enjoy visiting Hologram Land.
