I have loved playing the guitar since I first picked one up in my sophmore year of high school. I have 4 but this is my newest addition I picked it up in a fantastic little music shop in Ashland OR. 2 weeks ago and it sounds so sweet. I took these shots tonight just for this challenge. Then I had to put down the camera and play a few songs. It was a good night.

Cheers,
Steve

Steve,

Very nice entries.

Would love to see a shot with your hands strumming the strings. Something long the lines of:

Very nice Steve,

The second one is a unique angle. The neck seems to go on forever

I like the soft lighting in both shots and the perspective in the second. Selvin, what are those instruments the women are playing?

Thank you Selvin, that's a great idea. Now I have to figure out out to shot and play at the same time. That could be another challenge altogether. :lol:

Hey thanks Mugmar, I was trying to come up with unique angles using my Sigma 10-20mm. It is almost too extreme.

Thanks Cal, I was using a warming filter and really dialed back the flash. I also was bouncing it off the wall to get the side lighting effect. I appreciate your commnents, as always.

Thanks Bob. I am really quiet impressed with the Sigma. It seems to be a really solid build and I have had no noticable CA in harsh sun. I haven't had it very long but I really think it is going to see a lot of action. :|

All the best,

Steve
