40:1 CBD to THC Strain. Looks like a monster!

This year I have been growing a few high CBD strains of cannabis. My harvests have been moderately successful so far. Recently I cut down these two plants for drying and had a brain wave. Let's take the new Boling BL-P1 REB LED color changing lights and make an outrun style floating nugget photo! So fun.

You can see the straightforward set up below. Black felt backdrop, cinefoil around the lights to keep the background black, and a Leica SL2 with the Leica SL 24-90mm lens.

What's going on here?

Design happens everywhere. We look at it and give you our critique.

By thinking critically about the design that exists around us - evaluating what works, what doesn’t and why - we can apply new perspectives and rigor to our work designing applications and systems and communicate more effectively through design.

Our observations range from big corporate rebrands to local business street fliers. With each, we’ve taken the time to break down the designs and offer our point of view via a ranking system modeled after the Robert Parker wine rating system.

The Rating System

Unsatisfactory: Does not achieve design or communication goals.
Satisfactory: Just enough, sufficient, fine or “sure.”
Good: It’s good.
Very Good: Better than most but not exceptional.
Exceptional: Unusually good, rare, outstanding.
