I bought a set of cherrywood Ajax grips from a THR member for my wife's commander and they looked so good I thought I'd try my hand at some glamour shots.:D


There was about 30 seconds of daylight left so i ran out and snapped these quickly... whaddaya think?

Nice pics!

Not sure I like the mag resting on the gun like that though, but I like where you set up the shot and the light is nice. I like the bottom one the best, I think because you got in a little closer. Considering you were pressed for time I think you did a good job, keep it up! Also watch out for your shadow when the light is behind you like that, unless you want add a little of yourself to your artwork;)

Oh BTW nice gun:D

I think the mag resting on the top looks bad. Maybe laying in front of the grip/frame?

You might want to try out the macro setting on the camera if you have one. With sunlight like that you can get some AMAZING pictures.

They do look nice. I think there would be better balance if the magazine was below the gun, rather than above it and parallel to the slide.

Yes, there is a place for all of God's creatures: right next to the potatoes and gravy.

Try to not get your own shadow in the pic, just a pointer.

And my shadow's not in the photo, consarnit! :D

The light's coming from the right, and my shadow is running to my left out of the frame.

I can see what you mean about the mag... I wanted it in there somewhere but it wouldn't stay anywhere but where it is in the pics. Next time I'll take a minute and set up a better composition.

Try a different background. But you did good using the light to keep shadows off the object.

Awesome photos!
Might I suggest some different angles? maybe catch a slight glare from the sunset..
