“We operated in three-man teams, one man with the Springfield, one with an M1, and one with a Thompson submachine gun. The ’03 had the scope. The other men furnished protection for the man with the scope. The use of three-man sniper teams had evolved from the lessons learned during the early stages of jungle warfare… The man who was to function as the sniper would select a suitable position. The second man, acting as an observer, would search the area for targets and the third member of the team placed himself in a position to act as security. Two-man teams had been tried, but it was found that the man not firing could not observe and provide security at the same time."

Im still learning a lot about the camera. Its got a lot more capability than I do. Im also generally not a very creative person so setting up a shot with all the accessories so it looks 'right' is a very frustrating process for me. Like that last post with my trench gun, I took 37 pictures, each one changing a camera settings moving accessories or doing something to try and get a perfect shot, and at that I cant quite say in completely satisfied with that picture.

37 pictures, sounds about right haha. I pretty much never use any auto settings on my camera. Manual mode is for me. Most of my pictures are nature but I want to set up to get some good ones of my guns. I need to invest in some lights and diffusers as I prefer that over flash.

I’ve gone through phases, like experimenting with light. Some with natural light outside and trying to use a poster board to diffuse light, inside hanging blankets or whatever to prevent shadows. I don’t know what works best for me. I probably really need serious lights or whatever else but as this photography thing is barely a hobby for me I don’t feel like finding a place to store the extra equipment. Maybe it’s being lazy, I don’t know? I typically use aperture mode and dial the exposure up or down to try and get what I’m looking for. Full manual mode I am not ready for yet.

Complete nerd alert, got a new phone and it’s got these filters on it. Thought they were kind of cool.

I took a screen shot and played with the software I have for photo editing, just to let you see what it might look like 

with a white background. I didn't spend too much time so please be kind to the results.

 

Thanks

Not really one of my super creative shots, I didnt do anything to set up the picture other than putting the rifle in my fence and take a picture. I put a Battlearms Development collapsible stock, hand guard and French walnut stock set on my AR. I think it looks pretty cool.

No, its a standard run of the mill AR. The stock set is probably worth more than the rifle as a whole.

Haha, I still need to get around to doing a budget build. I just noticed the markings for fire, safe etc and thought it might have been a FA.

No, theyre just there for decoration. A lot of lowers have them like that. My favorite that I saw was siesta, fiesta, donkey show.

That's great haha. I've seen other humorous ones, but not that. I should mess around with some photography on mine.
