    Either I don't have a lot of interesting areas on my property, or I lack imagination... Didn't feel like going down by the creek. Still soggy from he last overflow. Somehow, I find this rock, and angle pleasing to me. It's "Princess Rock", where we bury our dogs. Either of these any good? I like the shadows better on the early fall shot... I also like the yard when it's not dead looking.

    A few things come to mind...

    1. Change your angle and get lower. The alteration of the "typical" perspective will catch the eye more.

    2. Use a larger aperture with your camera, this will blur the background and make it less busy looking.

    3. You want lighting where the background is darker, and there is more light on the subject. This can work easiest on a cloudy day, or figuring out when the sun will be more in front of the rock instead of behind it.

    Board policy mandates I state that I shoot for BCM. I have also done work for 200 or so manufacturers within the firearm community. I am prior service, a full time LEO, firearm instructor, armorer, TL, martial arts instructor, and all around good guy.

    I also shoot and write for various publications. Let me know if you know cool secrets or have toys worthy of an article...

    1. I did that, but then there was a tree coming out of the back of the weapon, and it looked weird. I can try is again seeing as how I'm no artist.

    2. Nope... my "camera" is an iPhone 7+ other than my very old little 4.3 megapixel Pentax, but I could play with that.

    3. Devil's in the details. Thanks.

    Same rock, but different lighting, (nicer day) different rifle, different angle so there isn't a tree coming out of the gun in the background, still just have a phone...
