    I got bored today and decided to do some shooting. I was messing around with lighting, photoshop and different stuff and wanted GTs opinion and any advice on how to take better ones. Through some trial and error I started bounching light around (Ruger LCP pic) by using white paper.

    Make your own light box with a cardboard box and white sheet. Use the cheap shop lights with the big bowl reflector and some 'daylight' light bulbs. Turn your camera flash off.

    I wouldn't I've had hipoints that are more accurate than them. Also ammo is hard to find and expensive.

    I have the best luck taking pictures outside in the shade or on a cloudy day.
    I just let the digital camera do it's thing and I do just the least little bit of experimenting with the settings.
    The great thing about the digital camera is you can just keep trying until you get it right.

    Nope. There's another option most people don't know about. State Defense Force/State Guard.

    For some reason, the bottom pic {I guess the LCP} doesn't show up for me. But the others look good.
