I would like to 'Photo Document' my collection of firearrms. Would like to take Closeups and Full Rifle shots. I have a decent SLR Digital Camera.
I have a couple of questions.
1) What color 'background' is good for taking pictures of rifles ?
2) What lighting is recommended ? I have two official photo 'lamps' for taking portraits.
3) Would it be better to take pictures with artificial lighting, or a combo of artificial and natural light?
4) Is there any place that explains how to do this? I have tried taking pictures of rifles before and have been less than happy with the results. I have seen some
excellent shots on this board. I would like to try to produce pictures that are as nice as the ones on this site. Getting good rifle pics is not the easiest thing to do.
Any advice would be appreciated.
