I like the lighting , but in 1 & 2 her head position is way of for someone using a scope ( assuming they want to effectively hit their target ).

Nice shots. You can do a lot with ladies and gun poses.

However, the notion that AKs are inaccurate is false. I have several AK and their variants and they are quite accurate :) :)

Index the trigger for sure but those shots are great.

On the second set I'd have moved the camera up a foot or so from mid-torso to somewhere nearer eye level. That pair of shots just feel awkward to me at that angle.

Accurate in close range... Good luck trying to hit someone accurately far out.

While I get what you are saying (rules of firearm safety), it seems to me that if you are wanting to take a photo of someone appearing to shoot, having the finger on the trigger contributes to the picture. If I'm taking a picture of a chef, I don't tell him to leave his knives on the table for safety reasons. As long as safety precautions have been taken care of, and the intended purpose is to mimic firing a weapon, I have no problem with someone's finger on the trigger when shooting a photo.

If you look at the pictures in detail, you will notice that the weapon's safety is engaged, the bolt is locked back, and the magazine is empty. I'm surprised you overlooked those details, and focused in solely on the finger on trigger.

Only 'cause it promotes/encourages bad behavior in the viewer.

To extend your analogy it's like having the chef juggle his knives...

To my eye, anyway, the subject looks smarter when he/she is indexing which, again IMO, improves the composition.

Sorry to nitpick. They really are great images.

DOF looks to narrow in 3 and 4.
Guns are in focus, but the girls are out. Was this intentional?

Perhaps if her finger was "correctly" positioned on the trigger it would look better. Her trigger finger is more like you would see on someone rolling a double action on a revolver , not on a rifle. Fix , that , and place her head in the correct position , and the image would look much more "realistic".

All in the details.

Then you could move on to correct position for the legs/feet when shooting prone.

Can't wait to see your next set.
