Longshot scpoe painting part 2



Hmmm, I've finished it!!! the following pictorial will show what's going on. :-) 

I had so much fun, I decided to paint one of the many tactical lights I have too. :-) 
simply painted it white with masking on the back. a bit too lazy to add more detail.
Putting the painted pieces in my dryer for faster resolving.
Here I've masked the body of the scope to add orange to the tips (they didn't match the longstrike colors)

After adding orange. (it still didn't match. correct thing to do was paint the whole thing white, then orange. ) 
Obviously I didn't want to paint the clear plastic lens too, so I mashed it for painting. 
Here I'm adding a layer of gloss sealant to protect the finish. 
The finished product, WHITEOUT Longstrike with painted scope and tactical light. Should have added more details, but too lazy to do detailed masking. 
Tactical light still works perfectly after putting it all together. 
The finished paint job. Quite easy, if the design is not to detailed. 
Another shot. It's very hard to keep the white paint finish clean during the process though. Fingers must be spotless, and the pieces cannot touch anything. Darker colors would be easier to paint. 


There you have it! my finished scope!! since I still have black and orange paint, I feel like painting a recon with orange highlights. :-)

Thanks for reading! 

Just started painting my longshot scope white! Part 1



I've just started painting my longshot scope white...so here are the pics of the paintjob so far. :-)

The paint and masking tape I bought; From left, black, clear  lacquer, orange, and white. 
Here's the scope, with screws removed, ready for first masking. I'm planning to paint the base white, then the orange, then the details.

process of masking the knobs. 
completed masking for first white base coat. 
first coat of paint. recommended 10 minutes wait between coats, then another light coat. total 3 coats required. 

It started raining, so I used my clothes dryer to dry the paint. 

More pictures as I continue!

Words of advice from our judge!!



NERFMALAYSIA is proud to present a 10-question interview with our esteemed judge, Mr. Solomon Freeman!

1) What do you focus on in your NERF photos? 


Capturing stunning action shots & players' emotion.


2) What do you look out for to get good color and contrast in NERF photos?



NERF products are already very colorful, it certainly adds more interest into the photo.



3) What are 3 things not to do when taking NERF action shots? 


Never interrupt a game. Never bias towards any team. Never disrespect anyone in the game.


4) What are 3 things you should do when taking NERF action shots? 


Anticipate the action you wanted to photograph & wait for it, if you do not envision your shot first, it'll be too late to capture when it happened.



5) How important is the camera / accessories for NERF portraits or action? 


When photographing any action shots, for DSLR users you need a minimum shutter speed of 1/250 second to freeze the player's movement. A telephoto lens (70-200mm F2.8) to zoom in closer to your subject without physically getting closer & interrupt the game. As for portrait, any camera will do.



6) How do you know when to shoot the picture? 



Always anticipate what will happen next & stay in the spot to frame(compose) your shots, index finger always on shutter button & viewfinder never lower than your nose-level. Follow these criteria & you'll be fast enough to capture any shot when the opportunity arise.



7) What are the general elements to a good picture? 


Lighting, composition & exposure. If you master these 3 main elements, you can make any boring subject look interesting.


8) How do I know if a picture is good or not? 


Photography is an art, art is subjective to each person's interest. If you like the photo yourself, then be confident.



9) what do you think is in a good short movie? 


To be able to tell the whole story.




10) What is the one piece of advice that you would give to all participants in this competition?


Stay passionate in whatever you do & you'll be surprise what you can achieve.
