Hello. Here's one of a MkIII Browning HP in 9mm taken today at the range. It was cloudy and did make for a less "contrasty" picture.

Best.

Nice new photos Stephen. Your Colt revolver is a classic. Interesting lighting effect with the Sig photo, and the specular highlight off the reflector of the SureFire creating that small beam of light. Interesting too, is how placing the magazine with its row of circuclar holes, between the flashlight and gun, emphasizes a repeating pattern of circles -- especially with the angle of the shot, and the end of the flashlight and barrel crown in the foreground. Makes for a visually harmonious effect. You can however, also see the effect of either a tiny bit of camera movement, or the limit of your focal range being found, evidenced by the slight blur on the hammer, rear sight and mag well opening. Might be worth considering a tripod and one of those cool remote cords? That almost sepia tonal quality of the Hi-Power photo is very pleasing to my eye, as is the overall composition. It just keeps getting better Stephen -- keep'em coming!

Hello, Desert Dog, and thank you. I'll keep trying. The little Police Positive is a revolver that was said to be unfired when I bought it for about $200 some years ago. It had a very, very good action and I bought it for my mother. The gun dealer was a friend.

One thing that even a novice shutterbug like myself is learning is that there are different "styles" of gun pictures. I'm trying to come up with new ideas on taking pictures, but have to guard against doing "the same old thing" again and again.

Best and thanks again.

Hello. Here's an attempt at photographing another old revolver. Taken outside, I also tried to reflect some light to remove shadows and reduce harshness using aluminum foil (dull side out) attached to a piece of cardboard.



We've likely all heard folks say, "If that just hadn't happened, I could have ...." and so forth. A response heard around this neck of the woods is, "If frogs had thirty-eights, the could shoot watermoccasins."

Well?



Best.

"Mars Jawge, if you'll come down into de swamp I'll show you a whole stack o' water-moccasins."

Thinks I, that's mighty curious; he said that yesterday. He oughter know a body don't love watermoccasins enough to go around hunting for them. What is he up to, anyway? So I says:

"All right; trot ahead."

You might want to take a look at this thread on a neighboring forum: http://www.usualsuspect.net/forums/show ... eadid=5959

For the money it's probably worth a try. I bought the parts but haven't had chance to put it together yet. Less than $50

I'm struggling for improving my photography skills and found a bulk of data, tips, etc on the internet which is helpless and wastes my time. Then, I found this site fully helpful. Because they have detailed reviews on cameras or accessories in a style that you come to know about every tip and feature you are looking for.
