Help me caption this poster!


May 8, 2004, 02:15 PM
Last night I had some old rolls of film developed, and some of them turned out really well.

I really liked this one... It just needed something, so I put it in there:

Can you think of something that might fit in there? Anything that fits better?


P.S. Extra credit if you make me laugh! :D

"Can you run 850 feet per second? Didn't think so."Well, if he was using 10mm, it would be more like 1300fps...

I think the caption you have is dead on perfect, but a.) you need an exclamation point instead of a period, and b.) the Helvetica type face and its imitators have been used to death.

Focus on the front sight!

May 8, 2004, 03:17 PM
Some of these are pretty good!

I was initially thinking "It's your turn to do the dishes."

Oh, it's a BHP 9mm, BTW. So I guess he's got to run 1150 FPS. :D

I had a couple of other ideas last night, but they're not coming to me... I'll post again later if I think of more.

You don't ALWAYS have to focus on the front sight you know :neener:

May 8, 2004, 05:31 PM
I don't have any particularly witty suggestions as to captions, but you might want to try experimenting with a few different fonts. To me, the one you have right now looks a little gritty.

May 8, 2004, 05:32 PM

You may not even need a caption.........the picture is worth a thousand words. That is a GREAT photo !

To me, the one you have right now looks a little gritty.

Yeah, that's what I didn't like about it. I'll experiment with different ones.

Thanks for the captions, guys! :D


May 8, 2004, 06:40 PM
I dunno, I really like the caption as it stands. Different font, sure. But the punctuation is perfect. IMO, anyway.

"You have 13 reasons to leave my property."

Holy crap, that is an awesome one! It really fits great because I named that gun "Lucky 13." :D

4v50 Gary, I like "Wrong House" too, but I was just looking for others that might fit. Basically just looking for variety.

I'm not witty enough for good captions lol, just wondering what exposure settings you used?

I was using my Minolta SRT201 SLR with a 50mm "standard" lens. I opened all the blinds on a bright day for the lighting. I believe (but don't remember for sure) shutter speed was 1/125 sec, and f-stop was either 4 or 5.6.

I didn't plan the shutter speed and f-stop out... I usually just shoot shutter priority and leave it at 1/125 or 1/250 for versatility and adjust aperture to match.

Basically what I did was get the lighting bright enough for a good picture (I don't have a flash), set the shutter speed fast enough not to detect shakiness, and made the aperture match. Before I shot I used the depth-of-field preview to make sure it would look good. Then I shot. I'm pretty pleased that it turned out as well as it did for only trying it once.


EDIT: Oh yeah, I had my Brother hold the pistol while I did all that. His gunhandling's not bad, eh?

I agree with Standing Wolf and his suggestions.

I'm not good at captions...I'll try.

"Carry Out "

"Prone To Go"

May 9, 2004, 06:36 AM

Your caption works, I just added some explative for spice. I don't think I could come up wiht anything better.

Maybe "I SAID let go of my daughter!"

Change the pic to a female, and "NO MEANS NO!".

Ok, I have to. This has to be in a Samual L Jackson accent.

"You probably asking yourself, can I shoot 14 shots or only 11? Well, since Clinton screwed things up you never can tell. So you just have to ask yourself one question. Do I have to outrun 11 or 14?"

Most people consider 13 to be an unlucky number. Those people must not own a BHP.

:) Funny you should say that! 13 has always been a lucky number for me. (Jesus Christ AND the Twelve Apostles) That's, 'Why' I like my Browning P-35 (Hi-Power) and Glock Model G-21: Both hold 13 rounds. Although the last time I had to pull a gun on somebody it was a S&W Model 59 with 16 rounds stuffed into it. (He decided that he didn't want to play!) :D

I like "wrong house" it's short and potent. As far as the font, if you had a glass effect to apply to the font it would be cool. You could see the caption put it wouldn't detract from the picture.

May 10, 2004, 10:32 AM

I like "Wrong House". It's high density information for a powerful image :)

If you wanted wordy, you could go with something along the lines of "The last thing through your mind is the first thing out of my barrel" or something like that, I suppose....

The original 'Wrong House' was good, 'county jail or county morgue...your choice' was great, 'some things are perfectly clear to criminals' is excellant!!
Some quick ones,off the top of my head...
"Pondering a New Career?"
'Support You Local Mortician"
"Damn, I just bought new carpet...thank god it is red!!"
"Time to test the Stainguard on the new carpet, I guess"

"Do you believe in reincarnation?"
"Is your life insurance paid up"

"Got Toilet Paper?"
"Depart my house or this world in the next 5 seconds!"

I've read all the posts and I have to say "the original" is still the greatest!
I liked it the first time I saw it and still do.

Every gunshop in the country ought to have a big poster of this for all the public to see.


May 12, 2004, 12:12 AM
Jercamp45, lots of good ones there.

I think I'm going to modify one of your captions and see how it looks in the poster...

"A hollowpoint is a terrible thing to waste." :evil:

I've got to admit, though -- I still like "wrong house." :)

I like messing around with Photoshop, and I'm trying to find a pic similar to the original (gun in hand, pointed almost straight at the camera), but in extreme close-up. However, it needs to be a revolver; I want to see the rounds in the chambers (and, if possible, the one down the barrel). Because my caption is "Your name here" with little arrows pointing to the visible bullets.

I've looked at hundreds of pics using various image searches and only found a small handful that was almost, but not quite, what I need.
