Here's part of what I shot today.
One hell of a day today! It started out with going to a diving competition and taking some pictures for a client. Then Lacie (my grand daughter) and I went out and shot a few rounds from a S&W 3914 and a Hi Point 9mm Carbine. Then we went to a local BMX and Skate Park to take pictures for another client. I'll not clutter the thread with the diving and BMX/skate board pictures but here are some of the firearms.
Yes that is brass flying in the pictures. I shot them at 1/3200 of a second to make sure I got some brass. The DOF is a bit off as it's hard to shoot real guns as you do not want to be in front of the muzzle. All the shots were done with a remote shutter release.
This is the first time ever she has shot a real gun. She loved it. She's already wanting to go shooting again.
I know it's shaky btw, once I can afford a tripod it's gonna be game-on.
I just bought a nice monopod and I'll say it is honestly pretty sweet for video. It's much lighter and more portable than a tripod for going into crowded situations and you can rig up some pretty simple steadicams with a monopod.
Chris Arnet, make sure you want that much vignette in an already dark image; thats all ill say.
You're right, I need to tone it down on my vignetting in PP. I know the background isn't flattering in some of the wider shots with the foam on the wall, but thats out of my control. How are they otherwise?
