15mm Pinfires & Updates to my Website & Photography Tips


#1

Photography Tips:
I recently bought a “Portable Photo Studio”/Light Tent for product photography from Amazon (Here is the link to the one I bought) and have been retaking pictures of some of my collection.

If you are looking for an excellent way to get great looking images this is the best I have found for the price. Without any photo editing it takes a great picture, and only needs a little bit of editing to get an outstanding picture (All i did on the following images was, using Adobe Photoshop, adjusted the curves by setting a white point from sampling the background, and a grey point from sampling the lead and other minor curves adjustments on a couple)

15mm Pinfires:
Here are the 15mm pinfires that are now in my collection. They are all the same scale so you can get a really good idea of their size in relationship to each other.

Some notable ones are:
#4: 15 M [over] MADRID
#12 KYNOCH & CO [over] 15 M/M [over] BIRM
and the dummies and shot cartridges

The whole list with more information on some is available on the website.

Excellent work. What camera do you use? On a tripod?
