More Photos from the Morning Session
Rob, you want to take that Lens back part of the photos are out of focus! (Must have baught it from same dodgy shop as March?)
Anyway, here are my memories from Gp7, starting with my favourites.
Holly checks that he has braught an extra £10
So that come the end of the shoot and having been whooped once again by a NJR100 he can gladly hand over the Cash.
Good Sport Holly, enjoyed the day. Please note I won the who can wear the silliest trouser comp too.
Now to knock you out of the showdown!
The new Hammerite gun was much inspected and admired. Not sure if it will be available in all the usuall colours?
Some of the Am shooters had to Push Off early as it this pace it will take 2 weeks to reach Gp8!
Strange wind reported by Ozzy on the Zero range
Pm shooters warm up on the Sillywets
The 8 yard reducer was at a nice angle making it not so straight forward.
and he was not the only one to miss it
You heard of running water?
Well East Devon had walking Water. Damm good idea and very welcome to have the mobile drinks fir am + Pm shooters, you did not even have t get up from your bean bag! Cheers!
Note, slightly more glamourous drinks hostess might be an idea?
Warning, Smoking can seriously damage your
chances of hitting a stander
and even sitters
Having done another great ringing display, Arms dealer Jacob sits and enjoys a well deserved tea.
Boys and their Toys
If James is going to stay on 2 down, meditation is needed. Or is it medication?
The old men of the woods
As they we not going very near the desired aim point, Chubby threw his pellets away, only for them to be pounced upon by the pellet praying Caplingmantis
Berty lines up another
Berty is encouraged to carry on
The final podium place in C class went to kneelers, the bears weak point
Leaving Dean Jukes to take 3rd place
Last but by no means least, Thanks to all that helped in putting on and running Gp7.
Cracking stuff Si
Nice to see you on the mend Pete...
Cheers Rob, it was nice to see the day and everybody.
Yep top stuff... thanks for all those that didn't even get a shoot, but helped out on the day
si cracking photos matey didnt no i had a private plate i must say i stopped at every service station on the m5 lol fixed it this morning £1.60 for the pipe and clips so bess will be back on tour(teach me for looking at new cars looks like bess had the last laugh)
Nice pics Rob F. I'm guessing there was some "manipulation" of the dof in some of the pics though. Doesn't look like it's all down to using a wide aperture. "Focal Point" or similar tool used?
Ah, well no... it's all straight off the camera, but I was using a Tilt/Shift lens which swings the plane of focus away from it's normal plane (perpedicular to the view) and allows me to align it at any angle... thus i can (when i get it right) align it to the side of a rifle and get all that in focus on f2.8, rather than needing f8 to get it all in... and i can swing it the other way, so it's ultra shallow... or get other odd effects...
Aha. That would explain it. Thanks for the info.
Very enjoyable sets of photos everyone.
Follow the following for my selection of GP7
Well it has to be said...
There are some cracking pics of the day here lads...
Shame about my score on the day but thats life eh.
I did like the pic of me sat on the tyres contemplating what the hell my rifle was doing tho. Caught me just right there Simon.....
Bring on Bisley.....
I was wondering if you were going to go into the "Big Dave" dance jig!
Far play, you kept it together for the rest of the course.
Nice photo's guys and a great record of the day Thankyou, I can feel your pain in that photo berty.
Reference, as usual!
The best marketing to FT.
Gun sorted hopefully
Popped over to see Doz earlier, wanted to check the internals of the ev2. Fair play I now know how to keep the inside of the rifle clean haahaa.
Hopefully now with the internals not looking like Steptoe's back garden she will be consistant as before.
