In fact, I finally got the carpet color right and now you guys want me to use a different background altogther.
I am finally figuring out the picture thing as well. It just takes some practice. I have actually been using cheap place mats from WalMart as my backgrounds.

If you do a search over a sigforum for Dr. Lunde, he has a couple of great posts about how to take great pictures.

I personally like the pink carpet. I think it looked great with some of the guns.

Yeah, I was getting too much heat for it though.

It is actually burgundy. The flash of my new camera made it look pink. Until I got my high res camera, I never heard anything about the color.

That's always a great pic, SC.

I've always wanted an Ultimate Master, but I already have two Baers, so I doubt I'll ever get one.

SC, I also tried my new lighting technique with my Classic Custom. I think they turned out well also. They are different due to the gun's mirror bluing on the slide.

It still brings out the details though.

You either need a light box to place the gun in, or a difuser on the light. If you look you are getting a reflection of the light on the slide of the gun.

The best thing to do is natural lighting outside, on a tripod.

You can make a light box, for under 20.00 using PVC pipe, and thin white material. If you want, I can take pictures of what I use. It cost me about $14.00 for the box, and about $20.00 for the lights.

Your camera should also have a white balance, which will eliminate the "pink" carpet.

My biggest problem is that I know how to take good pictures, now have all the tools and equipment, I just don't have the time to set everything up, and do it.

I still like the pink carpet, it added character to your pictures.

Yeah, you can see the light in the slide. I sort of did that on purpose to show the mirror finish.

I'll keep experimenting.

I live in a pretty tight development with a bunch of young kids around. Its difficult to take gun pics outside without the neighbors raising an eyebrow.

I thought about doing a setup like the one you describe as well.

Did you ever hear me talk about using a white sheet? Essentially you put the gun down with full bright sun on it through a window and hold a white sheet up behind the camera so the sun has to pass through the sheet to light the gun ( assuming you are using a tripod and automatic shutter timer). The sheet disperses the light much like a light box. That's how I did these.

OK, here's a couple pics for everyone. I think they turned out well.

I'm working on the lighting.

I love Rock River. Hopefully, they start 1911 production again once they catch up on all their AR orders.
