Hi Fraser;

Thanks for the offer. I'll have to look into it... no travelling for the next few months, though, I'm deep into rehearsals (again)

The problem of getting good shots of saxes and other brass is that there are so many reflective surfaced that it's hard to get a well-balanced exposure. These shots were taken with a Kodak DX6490 without any special lenses or lighting.

Here's a newer shot, taken with the same camera and one or more of my new Hoya close-up filters. (EXIF tells a lot about your shots, but it can't remember everything) I would have done this shot differently, but it was one of my first macro attempts.

Regards,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

Here's one more, with a bit of "gaussian glow" (thanks to Michael Reichmann) Hoya close-ups again.

Question: What kind of gigging do you do? You have quite a collection of horns there. I used to be a bit of a regular at http://www.saxontheweb.net/A great soxophone resource.
