Thanks Stick. Those are some great images. I am headed off to Lowe's get some of that gloss tileboard to give it a shot. At $10 for a 4x8 sheet, and it is cleanable/reusable, it's hard to pass up.

Here is my first shot with my new B800. Setup was B800 boomed (1/2 power) almost directly over subject with socked HOBD with a slight angle towards subject. 2nd B800 (1/16 power) was height of subject camera right at 45 degrees.

Base is white foam core board from wally world.

What do you think Stick?

I love how this became all about pistols... just the pictures I'm looking for too.

Thanks for the information on the modeling clay, I've been playing around with shotgun shells to hold my pistol up but that doesn't work too well :-\

imo, everything is super crisp and looks great. the gun critique has been taken care of... i think that the belay device is mangled with the carabiner and you should find a way to display it so it's not so intertwined. i wish i could tell you how to do this, but i am approaching this from a climber's perspective as opposed to a photographer's perspective... possibly hang it from some rope or webbing as a climber would have it or maybe fishing line so that the carabiner and belay device are properly aligned for the picture but the fishing line would be "invisible" so as not to detract from the picture.

Having trouble with the carabiner. Will work on it some more tomorrow. Here is another Glock shot, not sure about it, or why I cropped it to 5x5...but here it is anyway.

Thanks Chris! I have worked hard to get here; and I think it is finally getting to where I actually have a slight grip on what I am doing, haha. Stick is THE man when it comes to firearms/weaponry photography. I have learned a lot from viewing his threads over the past couple of years.

I have a very limited space to work in; and items to work with, but I am attempting to rectify that so that I can shoot some carbines, long guns, and more equipment.

Remember, it just takes time, patience, and persistence.

Oh, I forgot to tell you guys that all images tonight have been with my 50mm 1.4 lens. I love that little thing.

i didn't know if i was just being too picky about the carabiner/belay combo, but my husband, who is also a climber (but not a photographer) agreed. compositionally, he thought that the way you had the combo displayed was more interesting, but for a product display point of view, it was not very descriptive. good luck!

I completely agree, from a product sales point of view, it is too jumbled together. It needs to be more evenly composed/presentable. I am glad you said something, as I want to improve on my abilities, and I cannot do that unless someone points out why something is not appealing to them. Thanks again!

I think the lighting is a little flat.

Digg the shots, looking to get into that myself. Was there any PP done to get the background so stark white? or does the backdrop just look that seamless?
