“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.
