It is a bit dark but I wanted that dark, highlight look. Makes you really look at it.Happysniper1 said:Nice one! A bit dark (or is it my weak eyes?) but dark and sexy nonetheless!

1. Thanks.nyycanseco33 said:#1 nice gun
#2 that's one heck of a barrel, what do you use it for?
#3 where did you find the barrel that is that long? (I'm looking into buying an additional longer barrel for hunting purposes)
I'm new to my Canon SLR. I've been playing around with over and under but find all the settings make an impact. It's a huge learning curve for me.supercazzola said:If you were to make the photo again, I'd recommend the use of a piece of white or gold posterboard. Have someone hold it near a window and reflect light onto the gun. Or you may try changing the exposure just a tad, perhaps just to overexposed it by 1/3.
If on automatic, SLR cameras try to change the exposure in such a way that everything is neutral gray. In the old days of film, if you took a photo of a black card, the camera adjusts it (by overexposing) to produce a gray image. If you did the same with a white card, it would underexpose in such a way to produce an image of the same gray. I didn't believe it until I tried the experiment on my own.
Of course, that being said, I would have thought the camera should have made this too light. Did you adjust the exposure manually, by telling it to Underexpose -1 or -2 ?
Scratch that last sentence, I just re-read you held shutter opened. You could get similar effects with natural light, and manually adjusting the exposure to your liking...
It's a great shot, nonetheless.
