I was doing some product photography (one of my side careers) and thought I'd try shooting some photos of my Armalite for fun! Hope this is the right forum for these. I know she looks kinda dirty on the outside, mostly from the camo paint wearing off, but on the inside she's clean and lubed and shoots beautifully. Good grief there's a lotta jokes one could make when discussing firearms.

I used to have an ad agency on the side for years and did my own photography. I enjoy your photos.  You could get a better depth of field in the 1st and 3rd pix by increasing the F-stop.  Then there would be more of the product in focus.  Just a suggestion.  Keep it up.  It is fun for you and me.

Thanks guys. Here's a few more. BRiNkWaLL, the patch is from my local surplus store. They offer full color, dessert, forest green, and either velcro or iron on. Greco, thanks for the tip, I'll do that!

I like the worn paint look. Looks like that nasty dust that gets over everything.
