    I love me some gun porn. Have you guys ever considered a quick little project that can help with lighting your gun pictures?

    It's a simple little device called a macro box or light box.

    A snap Shot of the Light Box I constructed out of 1/2" PVC and Panel Ceiling Florescent Light Diffusing Panel. The two "work lights" with 6500 Kelvin Florescent Lights provide good light.

    The Background is just White Poster-board suspended from the back top part of the box, and allowed to curve forward.

    These are some of the pictures I have taken with that setup:

    Light box is the way to go. Camera flash just about ruins every shot. Cheapest is a very large cardboard box with top and one side cut out. Drape interior with a brand new very white bed sheet. Use the cheap clamp on reflector lights with the silver bowls for lighting. Try to find daylight spectrum light bulbs. Turn those camera flashes off.

    Man, I hate to be blunt, but these are among the worst photos that I have ever seen taken of guns with a Nikon DSLR. You really need to study photography more seriously than you are.

    Take this photo for example:

    [​IMG]


    Looking at the EXIF data for the photo, one can see that you set the white balance for tungsten indoor lighting. But then it also shows that you used your flash. Well, the color temperature for Flash is much different than Tungsten, so the colors are off in the photo.

    Even worse, the photo is definitely well underexposed and consequently way too dark and muddy. Whenever you photograph dark objects with a lighter background behind them, you need to increase your exposure to compensate. The light background will reflect light back much more than normal, and the camera ends up thinking that there is more light than there really is.

    There was no need to use such a fast shutter speed like 1/250th second. You could have used 1/60th or 1/80th and have been fine. You could have also used a higher ISO setting than just 200. Doing that would have also increased the power of your flash.

    Probably the best series of books on digital photography is the set by Scott Kelby. You can buy all 3 books on Amazon.com for only $44:

    I used a flat piece of colored posterboard, next to a window...
    Balance the gun on top of a small hotel shampoo bottle to get rid of those ground shadows and give it a 'floating effect' with crisp edges, position the shadow of the bottle underneath the gun so it's not seen:

    Too much stuff to remember. I just put my guns on a stump, leave the camera on auto and push the little button.

    My weapon of choice is a black felt backdrop with some special lighting so as to make the velvet disappear.

    This NV scope is pretty heavy :whistling:

    Had to pull out some of my photography tricks to get this shot:

    I kind of have to agree. You gotta try hard to take pictures that bad with a Nikon DSLR. I tell you what though...a Nikon SB-400 flash will help you immensely. Bounce it up off the ceiling and you'll be taking beautiful pictures like this (if I may say so), which was taken with my Nikon D40 equipped with the SB-400, bounced off the ceiling (which is the key):
