I thought you guys might appreciate some photos I took last night. They are of my only sword (Albion Crecy), and it's scabbard by Brian Kunz. I'm by no means a photographer, but I do enjoy messing around with my DSLR.

The pictures were taken with my Canon T3 Rebel, kit lense, and Giottos tripod. They were set on 100 ISO, 30 second exposure, using 4 candles for lighting (no other lights on in the house). Seeing as how the subject matter is a sword, I thought the candles would give it more of a medieval feel than artificial light. Three of the candles were in a candelabra, and the fourth was by itself. To make the lighting more interesting, I put the fourth candle on the opposite side of the subject (usually near the pommel) to counter the light from the other three candles. Anyways, on to the pictures:

scabbard and chape (both are hand-made)

Lo, they do call to me.
They bid me take my place among them,
In the halls of Valhalla!
Where the brave may live forever!

That second photo in particular is stunning, as is the subject. Nice work.
