Bore Photography



Somebody asked about this in another thread. Okay - I'll share some tricks. This image I had the bore placed uopon some sticky putty you get at HD or Office Depot, and you can see my light and hand in the back which is blue because it is more towards daylight color temp. Now - put your camera focus on manual, and focus with your other hand...then hit the sutter or use self timer...make sure you use a shutter speed which will stop any movement. I also tend not to you any strobes...these were color corrected lights and I dialed my camera to the light setting for indoor lights.

Another way to photograph bores, is to use a white packground and give it some good light to reflect into the back of the bore. Again, I often manually focus - auto focus doesn't always know where you want to be.

Nice tips. But what about the f. stop? Smaller aperture should be better I would think.

Also, a clean cloth patch with the LED light behind it would give a more diffuse light to let you see a bit more of the bore I would hope.

Just my thoughts.

Bores tend to be good, "frosted" or dark in most descriptions.

Here is a boring shot of my M1911 I took with simple digital flash camera catching a reflection of the breech face, extractor, and firing pin.

F-stop was the first thing i thought when opening this thread.

larger F-stop number (smaller aperature) means more depth of field, so i'd go with the highest the lens could do (in the lighting conditions used)
