    What I meant about the shape was that guitars look leaner and sexier at that angle because they physically look slimmer, but you can still see the top. Particularly true of les pauls. This is definitely just my personal preference though.

    This look amazing, were you using a tripod for this?
    Normally tend to use 1/320 for handheld cause of shaking

    I'm assuming you're using a full crop since you're using F4 and yet there still plenty of light?

    What tips would you give me-a crop user- to compensate for some of the pros that come with full frames, besides obtaining one haha

    Yes, I used a tripod for both shots. With good technique you can easily get away with 1/shutter speed as a lower bound for handheld shutter speed (lower is possible with really really good technique and a lot of practice).

    That shot at f/4 on a crop body or my D3 would look the same. There is no interaction between sensor size and the amount of light let in from the aperture; light meters are my counter example to there being such an interaction.
