Check out Ken Lunde's photos and his notes at the end on photo technique. See: http://www.praxagora.com/lunde/firearms.html I figured he uses Adobe Photoshop instead of Paint Shop Pro since he works for Adobe. He used an Olympus C 3030, then a Nikon D100 with a Nikkor 60mm macro lens, and has a Nikon D200 on order. He has an outstanding firearms collection which is a pleasure just to view. Good thing he does not live in San Francisco or he would be selling them or moving.
