    My Remington 870 (Photos)

    Even though I generally have no idea what I'm doing, (and lack the creative flair) I like the technical aspects of photography and like to shoot from time to time. I hadn't picked up the camera in a while, so tonight I thought I'd combine two of my hobbies and this is the result. I was only using a single bulb floor lamp so the results aren't great. I really need to get some off-camera flashes and diffusers/softboxes, preferably a hot light, and a bigger working area to really play.

    The images are rather large, so I'll just drop some links:

    The second picture has some halo, I guess the camera moved a bit. Easy mistake considering the 1.3 second exposure time. White balance isn't great either...

    It's a Nikon D3100. An entry level DSLR. For these two I think I used a 55-200mm kit lens. Thanks for the compliments guys, but really, they're not that impressive. I just mess around. If you've seen Slugo's photos, he knows how to take a really good one.

    Couple years ago i bought my wife a nikon coolpix L110, not as good as yours but a step up from her 70 dollar digital cam. Hers takes some pretty good ones too.

    Great pictures. The Remington 870 is an American Classic.

    That first one is pretty good.
    Photography is a ball. I fiddle with it a good bit and find it to be a great way to relax and build some creativity. There's a few folks on here with some photography skilz. Jamesb tends to make me look stupid with his shots, but still fun to post up our greater shots on here.

    Keep them coming man.

    feel free to throw up any of your other shots here.
