    No flash used. Image taken with natural light from a window on the opposite side of the room. The light was coming in but not shining directly on the gun, giving it that slight luminance from the top that you can see. Editing in photoshop was minimal, slight adjustment of contrast and brightness using the Curves tool, and slight burning of the edges. If I recall, I may have slightly sharpened the image as well. If I did, it would have been a very, very small amount. The gun is also not lying flat, it is being propped up an inch or two so that light is not reflected directly at the camera causing glare off the glossy black parts.

    Rebel XTi, macro filter, correct aperture and white balance settings, and natural light are the way I go:

    Default Indirect/Bounced Flash

    While shooting on a cloudy day is preferred over a full sun day, shooting indoors with indirect flash or flashes can give good results. I know this doesn't help if you only have one flash and it is permanently attached to the camera, but if you have a DSLR with an external flash try angling it toward the ceiling/wall. I'll shoot with up to three flashes, the one flash is attached to the camera while the others are positioned anywhere in the room and are fired using optical slaves.

    Here are a few shots I took today.

    I took the shots in my dining room using sunlight with a Sony Alpha DSLR (10.2 Megapixels). ISO 400, F-Stop 5.6, and a shutter speed of 1/4 second, shot in RAW.

    I did some retouching in Photoshop to even out the levels. Other than that, it is what it is. If anyone wants to see larger versions, just let me know. I shrank them down so our friends with dial up can see them. Any questions? Feel free to ask.

    Don't kill me for posting this pick of my "G word", but it's one of my favorite gun pictures ever. Again, no PS'ing at all (other than the watermark of course). Everything is as it happened, from the flying sand to the steaming shell!

    Nice photos there

    Another tip... Clean what you are going to photograph as even a little bit of dust can ruin a photo. I believe in doing as much work in the camera as I can without having to use Photoshop. This photo would have been a really good one had it been a little more sharp and had I cleaned the rifle better before hand. There is even a fingerprint on the lense. :(



    To get things stopped in motion use a fast shutter speed and shoot on continuous, or whatever your camera setting for rapid, continual photos might be. Here is one I did like that, while not stopping anything as fancy as the above photos, the technique is the same.
