Had some free time so I took some photos of my latest purchase to experiment with the camera, let me know what you think of the firearm and the photos.

Note: Gun was unloaded and safety checked before the Photo shoot.

Pretty good first time out I took 21 out of 25 single clays. I do need to add better buttpad as my shoulder was pretty banged up in only a t-shirt.

A good start.
My father was a professional photographer, and I recall the hours he would spend setting up for product shoots. A few tips: only show your best shots we don't need to see repeated shots of the muzzle, your best one is sufficient. And, an experienced photographer would have made sure the muzzle was bright and shiny clean. Your detail makes it look like it's corroded. Try to have your photos tell a story. Instead of your, "Note: Gun was unloaded and safety checked before the Photo shoot," wouldn't a photo of gun opened say the same thing in a language understood world wide? With firearms, details of the factory engravings and markings tell volumes. It will take a lot of experimenting with the lighting and camera angles to get satisfactory results. With your gun, the story is untold... I don't know exactly what it is; but, my experience tells me what it's not.
I'm looking forward to seeing the highlights from your next shoot.

Thanks I appreciate it.

This was the first time I ever used an SLR and was really just experimenting. I discarded about 200 shots which were repeated, out of focus too bright or too dark. I was working on manipulating the exposure not documenting the gun.

I will however keep your comments in mind in the future.

Good start.

Top quality pads are neither scarce nor expensive. The KickEez, Decellerator or Limbsaver lines will serve you well.

A smith with some experience at fitting can get this shooting where you look.

Well they are a bit scarce here in Malta but I will find something that works.
