Welcome Home

I took the day off work today and spent a little time out in the woods with my camera and tripod, and a pack full of knives.  I got some pretty nice pictures that I am happy with.

Some REAL BEAUTS ! Thank you Carl , I enjoy your pictures and Great photography . :-)

Thanks Jeff, I like practicing my photography skills, so this is the perfect hobby (or combination of hobbies)

Keep em coming ! Practice away ! lol

What a great bunch of Tuna Valley knives and superb photography.  Carl - do you use natural lighting or are you walking around with a back pack full of photo gear?  I wish I had learned about Tuna Valley earlier, just bought my first ones this year. 

Thanks you David! All my images are outside natural lighting. Full sunlight is bad, because knives have too many reflective pieces to them. So I try to do all my photography on cloudy overcast days.  All I have is a normal $150 camera, and a tripod.  I try taking the image at a bunch of different exposure settings, ranging from way too dark, to way too bright. And then I choose the best one from the bunch when I get back to the computer.

1 of my pet peeves is seeing a reflection of the camera lens in the bolsters or blades. So I have to take a lot of pictures, and throw 90% of them away.

The Tuna Valley line are great knives. I like that they are made in low numbers, not too many releases per year, and once it has been released, there will never be another release with that same pattern/handle ever again.  It keeps them unique and collectible.

Well, it's been a long time coming, but I finally found one of the Tuna's that I've wanted since I began collecting Tuna knives.  The 2012 swing-guard.  The only ones I had found previously always had the guard broken. This one is pure mint shape, and I'm so happy to have it.

She's a beaut. I looked for 5 years to get it. I know where a few others are at, but the people don't want to part with them. :)

real nice !
