Was messing around with my SLR I got for Christmas. Took this in a dark room and held the shutter open as I moved a flash light around it. Came out great!! My desktop.

Nice one! A bit dark (or is it my weak eyes?) but dark and sexy nonetheless!

Cheers!
It is a bit dark but I wanted that dark, highlight look. Makes you really look at it.

It looks amazing on my ibook in high quailty and as my desktop. Almost catalog cover quailty.

#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)

1. Thanks.

2. I use it for target shooting and hopefully matches in the future. I would like to make it my shtf gun because it has very little recoil and how 9mm is the most common full size handgun round.

3. The barrel is a 5" 3-slot compensated Bar-sto semi-drop in match barrel. First time I shot it, I hit a 8.4 oz redbull can at 25yds on the 5th or 6th shot.

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.

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.

Here is a car shot I took playing with under exposing. You can see a car drove by as the shutter was open.
