Thread: New lighting, set up and camera angle on cartridge

  1. #1

    Default New lighting, set up and camera angle on cartridge

    Trying some different lighting, prop setup and camera angles on bullet pictures. Just playing around trying to get something unique in presenting a cartridge. You all have seen other pictures of mine on cartridges, what do you think?

    358 Win 225gr Accubond

    Mainly a lurker here, but I must say I always enjoy your posts and photos. In this case I would vote for photo #2, grey circle, then photo #3, wide angle. Photo one does not show enough contrast, colors tend to blend together. Photo #3 on my screen has a bit of a shadow or halo behind the cartridge but is still crisp. Maybe the circle in #2 could be enlarged just a bit to pick up more of the base of the cartridge. I understand the base is all there, but maybe the light would be better if there was just a bit more room at the bottom. Very nice work, and thank you for your interesting posts.

    Final one for consideration





    Now this one is for fun :mrgreen:

    I hope more vote because I am trying to get a good picture that most like so I can have one for an article I am doing for June. Here is one I did a 7mm-08 140gr berger.

    Still voting for post #1, picture #2. The colors are much more vivid in #2 than in the last photo for consideration. Now for one who likes to be on the fence, me, the last photo may crop better for publication.

    Thanks, you might be right about the cropping but the editor will let me know and that might determine what is used or not.

    I think #2 is the best, but they're all heavy on shadow on the right side of the casing. Need to tweak your angles just a smidge. The 7mm08/berger is the only one that looks 'balanced'. I know it's not much, but when you're dealing with super tight detail like this, it's gotta be bang on or it feels tilty - if that makes any sense. Great shots!

    Post #8, either photo #1 or #2. I like that the base has been moved up in the photos. #1 the white tip does not wash out as much as in #2. #2 the cartridge appears larger/closer. Both photos are excellent. #3 the background is busy. Maybe if this photo was closer so the cartridge was larger the background would disappear a bit, but then the Nosler name would not be visible. Good composition in #3 with the Nosler name fully visible.

    Post #8, definately #1. The cartridge just stands out so much better.
    Science has a rich history of proving itself wrong.
