    Looks like you are using a cell phone camera. If not, turn the flash on or if you insist not using a flash then you need to either increase your ISO or use a slower shutter speed with a tripod.

    You are out of focus. Just take your time. You are on the right track.

    Thanks for the tips!

    Tried the Macro setting with better results, but the flash just whites' out the photo, so no flash comes out better.

    Am playing with the shutter speed and experimenting.

    Adjusted focus, too.

    I actually have two BT-99s for sale.

    This one is a 1987 model, 34 in, w/tubes, ejectors, Monte Carlo, original pad and LOP.

    I was told it was shot about 50 times, but was put together for a long time, and handled.

    The metal is 99%, and the wood has only one tiny mark at the bottom of the stock about the size of a pencil lead. No marks or scratches on fore-end

    All in original box w/ original tubes and paperwork.

    $875.00 plus shipping after payment, to your FFL with 3 day inspection on your end for your satisfaction.

    I like grey or white backgrounds for gun pictures, brown cardboard is not bad either. Regardless, IMO get what you are shooting on the ground or a flat surface because suspended in the air like that on a chair for example creates focusing issues with cameras.

    Out of focus with a digital camera is usually the result of focusing, holding down the button down halfway, and then moving before taking the picture. I watch my wife do this all the time.

    The white will influence the camera setting and make the blueing and wood darker.

    Take a darker colored cloth, like a blanket, or even a hide, to put the gun on, and take it outdoors. Try the photo in direct and indirect sunlight.

    Here are some examples:

    Indirect sunlight with a medium colored background to help prevent the metal finish from going too black.

    Difference between direct and indirect sunlight.

    This 10-22 barrel is solid black. So to see the detail, it was photographed indoors with flash, against a black cloth background (actually a pair of black jeans).

    [​IMG]

    Direct sunlight to bring out the color casing on this Win 9422 Trapper. Photographed against deerhide as a medium background to keep the blueing from going too dark.

    Danny, try taking the picture in the house during the day and closer to a window for more natural light. Your shutter speed should be quicker that way without the flash, and eliminate the shakes appearance.

    BTW, what is your second BT-99 for sale? Does it have the Competition forearm and what barrel length?
