    Another Pics Thread, But This One Is Mine

    First time taking pictures of guns, but I did what I could for now. The pics feature my HK USPc in .40S&W, my Pre-Lock S&W 442, my K-Bar TDI and my Benchmade Mini-Griptilian.

    Any suggestions/comments are welcome.

    Take care,

    Nice guns. As far as the photos...I'd suggest soft, indirect light. Also, manual focus and focus on the main item. Like in the bright one with all your items in it, it's focused more on the mag than anything else. Also, too many items in focus make it hard to look at. Simple composition is good, else make everything else way out of focus to draw attention to the subject. I like the second pic with just the gun and mag.

    Thanks for the compliments on the guns and especially for the tips on the pictures. I'll look into/keep those things in mind for next time.

    Take care,

    I won't comment on the photo's themselves - Lord knows I can't take a picture to save me. It is a nice family in the photo's though!

    Edit- I changed my mind a little bit. Something that did help my photo's quite a bit was picking up a cheaper photo light box kit that came with the professional lights (around $50 shipped on Ebay if you look). The lights on either side and the type of light really helped a lot. You might check into it.

    Very nice setup. Gun porn, we never get tired of looking at it, do we? :)
