I had a plan of from where I was going to shoot this. People got in my way just before they came down the aisle. Then, the PA announcer said no flash photography.  I ran the ISO up real quick and zoomed the 24-70 to 24, and fired a way.

What you say?

I think they should stick with M-1 Garands or M-14's for this kind of stuff, wooden stocks just look better!  The color looks good, there's the obvious face shadows because of the no flash request, other than that it looks good to me!


Nikon D-3300 18-55 VRII, 1971 Nikkor 135mm Q-Auto, Tamron 70-300 AF. Not much! But I'm working on mastering what I do have.

M-1's are especially dressy when the stocks are hand-finished.

 

In my Navy days, we used chromed 03-A3's for our drill team rifles.  We each custom-finished our own stocks.  Tru-oil was the finish of choice.  We also made bayonet scales from broken stocks to replace the original bakelite scales.


Best,

Dennis

From my vantage point, images look good.

Have to agree with the M-1 comments. Perfect for parade.

Nicely done, given the conditions.

 

I agree with the M-1 comments.  That was a ceremony; not a SWAT incident.  :)
