    Hello there,
    after playing guitar AND doing photography for many years, I decided to combine my love for both passions. I hope this is the right place for these kind of shots, nobody gets offended by the amount of dad-guitars (I'm well aware I am on sevenstring.org - I'm just getting older...) and everyone has a good time looking at my stuff. If you have questions feel free to ask!

    Man. What do you use to take your photographs? Those look fantastic.

    Did you use Imgur for your host? I don't see anything.

    Could you repost the pictures? Would be great to see what you've come up with.

    Act as if you're going to reply to his message (hit reply) then refresh your screen. Should get the pictures to show up.

    EDIT: Great shots btw!

    You da man!

    Mate these photos are so pleasing to look at it, especially the True Over Drive one with the rocks around, that one was especially eye-catching. Well done mate! What kind of camera did you use? I assume you're using a lighting setup as well?

    Those look really nice. It's like you're a pro photographer or something.

    Thank you! I use two different cameras, one is a Fujifilm GFX 50S and the other one is a Fujifilm X-T2. Most of the time I use the GFX because I have more lenses and different focal lenghts to choose from. :)

    Yeah, that was the first one I had a real idea for and built a set. Most of the time I use a GFX 50S (but you can't see the magic of medium format images at this down sized pics anyway - the files are huge, i mean you can see my type of haircut in the reflections of the volume knobs, its crazy :-D .) I have two cheap lights I bought from amazon but they only work for the pedal shots because you can place the lights in front with nearly no distance. They are just not that bright, I try to get better lights asap!

    Aw, you are too kind. I do landscape photography for many years and I have a webdesign/graphic design background - so maybe that helps a little bit. Anyway, thank you for the kind words. I really appreciate it! :)

    Oh and sorry for the images which aren't working until you press "reply" – there is nothing I can do as long as I use imgur, right? Some sort of bug?

    From what I understand it's not a "bug", imgur has this site on their hot-link blacklist. I might be misremembering, but it may have something to do with the situation having a For Sale section.

    Therefor I added the direct link to imgur where you can view them directly https://imgur.com/a/KprZWLa :) But I'll try to get it fixed!
    Ah okay. I'll check out other image hosting provider and hopefully get it fixed.

    Amazing bunch of instruments and pedals you got there! But an NSFW warning would have been nice. I wasn't prepared for this my porn. That first guitar from your link is a guitar and company I'd never seen before. Also that Jackson looks amazing.

    Sorry, next time I'll add the NSFW tag! ;-)
    Funny, that was the one (besides the Jackson) I thought everyone from SSo_Org would know. I prepared myself for getting shit for the Valentine and Silver Skies. :D

    As a hobby photographer, and guitarist, you did GREAT! Great lighting, composition, colors, angles, shadows, etc! Love it! Very light and airy and tack sharp too!

    They look great. Saw them a couple days ago on Reddit. Did not help my Silver Sky desires!

    Little off topic but I asked in the Beginner's forum about hosting and people pointed me towards postimages dot org, works great for here and other places.

    Extremely nice pics of your gear, thanks for sharing!
