    I've noticed mention of guitars from quite a few members. Since I love guitars, I'd love to see what y'all have got!

    For this challenge, the photos must be guitar related in some way. A capo is fine. A pick is fine. A guitar is fine. A bass... well I guess it's still a guitar... so fine. Amp? All good. And so on and so forth. Simple challenge really.

    I'd love to see some creativity in the shots in terms of lighting, composition, etc... Basically, I'd like them the be better than these that I'm posting which are snapshots done with nothing other than the ambient light in my rec room. And, yes, I did use these in another thread... :lol:

    I'm sure I can do something with this, it's been a while since I've done anything new with my collection. Let's see if I can come up with something over the next couple of weeks.

    Why does it have to be guitars? Can I play with my mandolin and my fiddle, well, i can, but can i participate in the challenge?? I mean a true bass is in the violin family, and the mandolin and violin family run side by side, there is even a mando-bass...

    anyways, i just want your permission to play!

    I have quite a few that would fit this... But I'll do a new one just for you. ;)

    I'm going to be buying a new flash soon ('bout time), so I will wait till then.



    ...Honestly, I take pictures of my guitar more often than I play it. :blushing:

    Don't really know why #1 is rotated that way. Went in and rotated it correctly, but when uploaded it went back to being upside down. :???:

    The word "collection" just opens up a world of possibilities in my mind! I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

    Beginner Squire, or Clapton's million-dollar Blackie, makes no difference! A guitar is a guitar and a photo is a photo! Although... if you have access to Blackie and can get a pic of it and all...

    Eh... for this thread, I really envisioned "ye olde sixed-strung gee-tar"... initially I wasn't even gonna allow bass guitars to play...

    I know... thinking hurts! But remember, no pain, no gain! :lol:

    The thread and I are honored that you'll do up a new shot with your new flash! :lol:

    Seriously, I'm looking forward to some creative lighting!

    Sure they do, but I use these challenge and assignment threads as ways to get me to shoot new things (but I often post up older pics that I stumble across that fit...:blushing:)

    And I like the warm tones in your pic like the warm tones of a bass through an old tube amp! At first glance I was like, "what's that oxygen bottle looking thing in the background...?". And then I realized that I'm an idiot and it's the upper horn of the bass' body! :blushing:

    I really like this image for the lines and shapes (which are what I almost always look at first in a photograph). This shot would also fit the http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/...ssignment-08-light-darkness-due-whenever.html thread!

    I like 1 & 2, but I love 3 for its simplicity and symmetry! Great capture!

    OK, well I still don't have my new flash yet, but here's one to hold you over till then:

    The strings look oversharpened on this smaller version..., but it looks fine on the big one (which can be seen via the link right under the picture).
