Congrats on getting your pics in the big time. It'll look good
on your photographic resume. Shame the mayor doesn't know that guns are not capable of killing people by themselves. People that think that way are just sick! heheheh

What kind of lighting did you use in the example photo?
Also is that a Nikon sticker right below the package the gun came in??? I didn't know they made guns!

Skip, you're doing so well. You should be really proud of the progress you've made in such a short time. Proof that obsessive photography pays off!! :)

Some of my co-workers are in NYC, I'll ask them to have a looksee.

Yes, those gun dealers really p NYCers (including me) off. Glad you got to cover it though. Hope the dealers get locked up in the slammer for good.

Congratulations! My dad reads that paper everyday (I'm originally a New Yorker but am in Japan now) - I'll have him keep an eye out. That's so cool :)

Yup, he linked to it in his post. Hope somebody scans the paper like his tear pages so we can see how it looks.

They don't, but they make excellent binoculars, which is something hunters use a lot.
