That also describes her Sig P365.

Random strangers on camera

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

On my way back from Pyramyd Air Cup 2018, I took a snapshot of a young child at Columbus airport. The eye-tracking feature of my new Sony camera worked extremely well, getting the focus just right even at 2.8 fairly close up. The kid’s mother and I talked for a while, turned out she was also heading to Nashville.

Today, I took a few studio photos of them. I’ve only edited one so far, but quite a few came out well. The kid, being a very positive, smiley cherub, stole the show.

The kid’s aunt, his mother’s younger sister, came along for company and also ended up on camera. This way, I met interesting people and gained an interesting local model. I like how things just work out.

Pregnancy and contact martial arts do not mix.

Ranged solutions tend to be more convincing…even before shots are fired.

Obviously, it’s best to have training completed before pregnancy progresses much.

Editing old photos

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

Every so often, I look through old images and find something worth editing. This photo from last year was one such picture.

Sometimes, people from my past reach out and that prompts me to review the archives, finding something editable there. The portraits below date back seven years.

Besides me being a bit better with Photoshop, I think forgetting the original intent of the composition helps with a fresh re-approach to it.

Catching up on last year’s photos

I met Angel by chance late 2015, and we did the first photo shoot Spring of 2016.

Fast-forwarding to October 2017…she made pretty good progress with weaponcraft.

Ridiculous, defined

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

This is a 1954 Chinese type 53 (a clone of the Soviet M44 Mosin carbine). Somebody chopped the forend short, replaced the buttstock with an AKMS folding stock and a pistol grip of unknown provenance.

The end result is a rifle that’s nearly useless for bayonet fighting for lack of a grip space for the support hand, and rather unpleasant to fire thanks to the underfolding stock. That stock, already uncomfortable on the lower-powered, self-loading AKMS, was originally meant for an open bolt 9mm submachine gun (MP38/40) with almost no felt recoil. Every round fired from this bolt action is outright painful.
