Like most of you on lightstalkers, I am a photographer who is also involved in creative pursuits that don’t involve my camera. For the last 5 years, I’ve dabbled a little on my own designing objects. My most recent one is a bottle opener that engages and removes the cap as you grab the bottle. It’s not the only one-handed bottle opener, but I believe it is the first to work like this with a single, simple motion. Here’s a link—and this is my first try at really putting together video and audio, so any feedback on that part is welcome too:
My motivation on posting this here is twofold. Naturally, one is in getting the word out, so I can gauge how viable this will be to pursue long-term…Since I’ve only met one photographer in 20 years who was never inclined to open a bottle, I figure lightstalkers is as good a place as any to ask.
The other part comes from the idea that every creative pursuit that you take on can enhance the other things you do. So I also want to ask, what other creative outlets do you have outside of your work?
