    Custom Rod Porn that is.

    Let's see 'em, and any hints you might have as to how to take a good snap (ie, camera settings, background, etc).

    Here are a few that do not suck.
    Much.

    Whats #5 Capt
    ( the one above the purty flowers)
    Its variegation is awesome .
    ( awesome in Strine being a lot better than 'Kewl' but not quite 'totally sick' )

    Hey Capt that is another whole tech thing that I am driving myself nutts over. I really want to get great shots (consistantly!!!!!) with out buying a bunch of camera stuff. I would rather take crappy pics and get the new reel. LOL I do have a Tiger that might fit the Porn label though. I havent taken pics yet but they should be done soon.

    #5 is, from the blank up, pearl white thread, with CP, no epoxy, then hot pink spray paint, epoxy, "sakura petal decals", more epoxy, then some black Testors paint marbling, with and open pearl thread covering, and two more thinned coats of epoxy.

    I call it the "Strine Wrap".

    So where are the pics, guys?
    Not so much about content, as it is good/interesting pics.
    I, for one, would like to see some glossy black guide wrap pics.

    Obviously CKW to my eyes, Denis

    Most important thing with photos is lighting. Especially with the zooming point n shoots, which have rather slow lenses. Without good strong lighting, the point-n-shoots will invariably choose larger aperatures (which lose depth of field) and longer shutter speeds. There's lots of other important stuff in taking pics too (focus, exposure, and selective metering for example), but if you have the lighting I think you can make most things work out as you want.
    Seems dumb to me that there is no manual setting on the point-n-shoots. Aperature priority and a tripod would be quite nice, for instance. As it is you have to sorta think thru the canned modes they provide to force them to do what you want, in a roundabout way. For instance, landscape mode leans toward a small aperature, while portrait mode leans toward large aperature. Higher ISO setting will tend to make the lenses act faster too, but can get grainy if pushed too far.
    Funny that the point-n-shoots are supposedly the ones for people who just want to snap pics and not think. I find the opposite is often true, where I can take better pics faster with the DSLR.

    I thought I could count on you?

    I will have to look around for some but here is a fun one. The center is my picture of Capt. Quint from Jaws.

    G,
    I like to put little detail things on my rods where you know it's there but you really have to take a second look to see it. That little single orange inlay is very hard to see with the naked eye against those colors. I actually enjoy doing stuff like that.

    I didn't take this photo but it's one of the best Rod Porn pix and Terry Henson is one best builder's/photographers I know. His use of angles & backgrounds is stunning!

    Absolutely agree with the subtle bits that typically only another rodbuilder has the eye to see & appreciate.


    Terry H has awesome composition in his images (& his grips).................Ventura John just composes his images with the same background .............. everyone knows that thread pile is from his failed wraps that he has to cut off three times before he gets a good one :D.; you'd think he would get rid of the evidence before he takes images of the real artist's work.

    "G"...........the 'strine" wrap is a beauty. I was guessing some marbling under a CKW & was surprised when you said it was a pearl tiger top.
    nice result from the technique.
