    Range time pictures!!!!

    I just wanted to post some pics of a few buddies and myself at the range. (Everyone loves range pics!)

    At the Range - a set on Flickr

    The guy in the white sweater is my buddy Mike who is in the Army. Eliott is in the gray north face jacket and I'm in the vest. I broke my foot a few weeks ago so I tried my best to get good positioning with a air cast/boot on.

    We also shot skeet and I was the designated thrower since my foot/back was hurting pretty bad. All in all it was a great afternoon at the range.

    I know it must have been a good time, in fact, I've never had a bad day at the range...I can't imagine anyone having a bad day at the range (providing no one gets shot).

    Nice pics...

    Heat stroke would be a bad day at the range... I came close once when I just got my XD9sc. I just had to shoot it! Went a little overboard.

    After I got outta the sun, hydrated and cooled off... I remembered it was fun at first!

    Great pics! Looks like you and buddies had a great time!

    Thanks for posting those!

    I would guess a digital SLR and a lens with a wide aperture. Something like the Nikon D40 with a 50mm lens set at f 1.8

    I have a Nikon D80 and this was with my Nikon 50mm f1.8D lens. Pretty much my everyday walk around setup, the 50mm 1.8D is great for low light or minimal light photography, plus the lens takes very sharp photos.

    As far as the pictures it's just like the gun, lots of practice and a lot of Flickr.com and internet lurking on different sites to learn more. Once you get the camera settings down then it's all composition and lighting and that's my primary focus right now with my pictures.

    Pretty darn close on the camera :) It's a D80 and a few months ago I bought a barely used D70 from a friend just to have as a backup (plus I got it for a steal of a price).

    +1 on the Ken Rockwell site he has very straightforward reviews.

    Also checkout the flickr.com groups pages. There's a ton of groups for different camera ect. and alot of good discussions in there with good info.
