Here are a few simple product shots I’ve been working on for an article on custom firearms. This is a highly customized “1911” pistol built from an inexpensive Kimber firearm for competitive shooting. Building this “race gun” was almost as much fun as setting up the lighting and props for these product shots.
For those of you unfamiliar with the 1911 semi-automatic pistol, this gun’s design dates back to the late 1890’s and early 1900’s. It was invented by one of the world’s most famous gunsmiths, John Moses Browning. The M1911 was introduced for the US military before World War I and has seen continuous use around the world for the past 100 years.
