Post Photography
Tonight my aim was to take a decent photo of this guitar. I'm still very much a photography noob, but i'm getting there. Luckily I can usually save most photos in Photoshop :lol: I wanted the light reflections around the edge to be nice and continuous, but I think I'll need to invest in some proper lighting for that.

I like the picture, and that the countour blends with the background.

Gets the viewer looking more closely at the picture.

Not guitar related, but here's one that I took while deer hunting last year.

This is actually 5 snaps all stitched together end to end.

To print this I'd need a paper 11 inches wide by about 4 feet long.

I think it's actually good enough for Squier to use on their official site! (it's much better than the ones they use now) 8-) Except that the original colour got a bit lost and now the guitar looks as if it's brown in colour :P

Who else is thinking about a jigsaw pickguard right about now? Or maybe an all-out finish in the style of a partially completed jigsaw. :o Nice one Allroy

Yea... or a pretty cool display at a computer store with a row of monitors set up along a shelf.

Realised I'd put this on the wrong forum, so I've moved it to the Moshpit.

Here's a cool one I took. I briefly had a macro lens and shot a close up of a dead wasp.
