Wonderful pictures, great gun.

What kind of set-up do you have to take such excellent pictures?

Thanks for sharing them.

Hum, lovely Boar on the straight-hand stock. The Belgian marks are worn so I wonder if the retail house Brun-Latrige à Saint-Étienne(Loire), Maison Fondée 1836, actually added some effort or just retailed it? Would a 10 bore have been rare for a French offering?


Cheers,

Fine pictures. I wonder if your 10 bore is a relatively light gun, compared to most 10 bore centerfires. A couple of 10 bore pinfires I have handled have been in the mid 7# range. Would that be the norm ?

Thank you very much for the link to your wonderful collections!
I passed it on to a friend who collects miniature pistols, many of which are pinfires.

Most of the things I shoot are smaller than the long guns, such as pistols, cartridges, cartridge boxes, etc.



All of those and any detail (closeup) shots I’ve posted of the shotguns I shoot in a MyStudio VS36 tabletop studio. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079LLFJWM

I also have extra lighting. Lots and lots of light is really the key. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007SHJJV4/

I actually did a blog post recently that kind of shows both of these in action. https://whitebackground.photography/2018...ite-background/

And this works fantastic for pistols because they’re small enough to fit inside the studio and I can actually suspend them from the ceiling and photograph them so that they look like they’re just floating with no shadows or anything.

Since pistols and cartridges have been the main thing I’ve been photographing for years, all of my equipment is catered to them. I use a lot of macro lenses which works fantastic for close-ups but gave me another issue on photographing the shotguns.

With a macro lens I have to be so far away!



This is obviously inconvenient so I bought a new 24mm lens to go with my Canon 80D and can now fit a shotgun in frame from about 4 and a half feet above it.



Now I can set up this background outside with plenty of natural light and position a little extra light to help shadows and darker areas and get a good picture!



Hopefully next year I am redoing an indoor studio space to have 12 foot wide space for photographing anything with a white background.

So hopefully this gives a decent idea of how I photograph these!

Then also use extra lighting and touchups in Photoshop even in shots that may look like they are just straight out of a camera with no thought.

I Finally got around to weighing this thing. It is right about 7 pounds.
