    Thanks. I know I'd be no good at it either, so I sent my cornet to Artistic Engraving. The pictures really don't do it justice - Sherry did a fantastic job on it.

    I can tell it was done by an artist. I might even get something like that done to my horn in the future. How much did it cost to do that?

    No problem. It stays really clean by itself.

    Re: Horn pictures

    Dale Proctor used the right technique.

    QUOTE:
    The easiest way is to go outside on a bright day and take the pics in an area not in direct sunlight. A darker, light-absorbing background can look good, but I've seen some very nice pics with white backgrounds, too. Here's an example - this one was taken on a sunny day on my patio under the picnic table umbrella, no flash, with the inside of the case as the background - pretty simple stuff.

    Since a trumpet is a "shinny" object it will reflect everything around it. A small light source, e. g. a flash, will just create a "hot spot" and generally not look attractive. Shooting outside on a cloudy day, or in the shade, w/o flash will usually give the most pleasing results, and it's easy to do.

    If you have to make the photos inside because there's a blinding snowstorm, or it's -25° outside, you can "bounce" some light off the ceiling assuming it's white or near white. By this I mean to direct a light source(s) at the ceiling instead of the horn. This will produce a soft, over all light that works well with highly reflective subjects. If you really want to get jazzy you can place pieces of white paper or cardboard close to the instrument, (but out of the cameras view). These will create highlights that will add some "sparkle" to your photos.

    MOST IMPORTANTLY IS TO USE A TRIPOD.
