This is an extremely large series, even by my standards. So I think an explanation is needed here to really appreciate what you’re looking at.
As a kid I used to love taking apart electronics. Clocks, TVs, Tape recorders, anything I could get my hands on. But my favorite thing to take apart was a VCRs. 30 years later and I'm still taking apart VRCrs. Only now instead of VCRs that costs hundreds of dollars, I've graduated to this High End Panasonic Editing Deck that was worth $5000 new. The heads where out of alignment. The cost involved in fixing it was out of the question. So the original owner, who knew of the macro work, happily handed it over to me.
I took about a month taking apart this ProVCR. Taking my sweet time. Great loving care went into taking this apart, only using a screw driver and a set of needle nose pliers. There was only one piece I had to break (shot #017). I had to use industrial strength bolt cutters to get that one out.
After I was done taking it apart I took over a thousand shots. So what you see here are the best of the best! Photoshop was used but only in cleaning dust particles and building the presentation frames. The lighting you see was done in the studio.
