Hey folks!

I got a new tripod for my camera and some new lights and started experimenting with it. This is what came out after some time! A small vignette depicting a gunport aboard a late 18th century British frigate with an 18 pounder cannon. The light in the front is supposed to come from the cargo access. There are missing some rigs and a proper recoil absorbing hoist - this is something I intend to redo completley. But for this small vignette I focused on the lighting.

As always I'd appreciate comments and criticism!

Very nice shots! Your vignette looks good as well. The cloth piece works very well as a bed. :thumbup:

Neat lighting! Although I would invest in smaller string. Neat ideas though

This already is the second smallest string for the recoil hoist that I have and would be realistic - but it might look better and more plausible when the scene is redone.  :pir-sweet:  


Thank you all!

(I've got five of those little hammocks in my ship and just had to show them another time  :pir-blush: )
