Nice pics...

I've got a long way to go in my photo technique, but some of these turned out half-decent.
Very nice macro work... almost as nice as the pistol. I can tell by the different angles that you are mastering "poor mans's lighting" (usually the sun).

Thanks for sharing,

Thanks for the comments-

I found that my wife's new camera has a "super macro" setting that lets me get very close, but I have to mount the camera on tripod next to the table to make it perfectly steady.

These were shot with natural light only, diffused through thin curtains to try to cut the glare down, but there's still some glare. Very difficult to photograph shiny steel and get a true color in the pictures.

An old post of Mr. Holbrooke's suggested using a neutral backdrop, and my old sleeping pad from the Army was close to hand. I like the texture but maybe the color's not complimentary to the pistol?
