    Johnny, I also came from the 35mm days. I didn't have a light meter, but would bring my camera right up to the item I wanted to photograph and use the whole camera as a "light meter". Not effective as you actually using a light meter, but better than nothing.

    The thing I continue to enjoy about a digital camera is the "instant feedback" you get on photos. No waiting for development of prints. And, a heck of a lot cheaper!!

    You have some good pointers here. There's actually someone that's asking for photo help on this page (M1903). I see that you have this as a sticky on this page, I think it would be a good idea to have a sticky on all the pages.

    Old Nikon 6 MP D-100.
    Direct Flash/Indirect Background Light
    I-Photo Post-Processing to adjust sharpness, contrast,brightness, color and effects.

    Sometime simpler is better.
    Sometimes accessories help.

    Looks like my biggest photography no-no's are the use of a white background, and the use of direct light (both indoor and outdoors). Could some one elaborate on some simple methods to create indoor diffused lighting ? Any tips other than waiting for overcast conditions for outdoor lighting?

    Regards
    Pat

    Two suggestions:

    1) If you have a shady part of your yard outside, that works pretty well. "Light shade" works well.

    2) Inside, near a large picture window, but not with direct sunshine coming through.

    A tripod and self-timer is invaluable, too.

    As far as background, I got a neat idea from John Beardicon - go to a fabrics store and buy a large sheet (maybe 3x4") of gray felt. Use that as a background and it works almost perfect.

    Removing photos from Milsirps

    How does one remove a photo posted here? I want to delete some before I exceed the limit.

    That might be worth emailing/PMing the other moderators. T be honest, I've found going through Milsurp for pictures a little hard to do and tedious. I cotinue to copy and paste from my photohosting site.

    Rick, Nice tips!

    I just found this site, but I remember you from the old CSPicon site. You forgot to add the part about colorful afghan backgrounds!

    my 1903A4 (somewhat)

    this is a 1943 A3 remington receiver affixed with a redfield original base and original lyman all weather alaskan scope. the bolt is an A4. if ever I find a A4 stock I will have about a 95% A4 shooter. the stock does have the arsenal P by trigger housing, but no cartouche.
    How much invested ? round figures about $500 +
    Sorry to say I did not do the technical changes.
