Thanks everyone!

First thing I wanna say is: I hate weapons, every kind of weapons. I'm an extremely peaceful guy and even weapons for shelter your own family are IMO too much and a world without guns would be muuuuch better. But it's just my opinion.

I wanted to take an anti-guns shot, I even had a couple of ideas but they required at least 5-6 people and I had no time to search.

So I called Alessio, who's the gun owner and explained him what I wanted to do.

It had to be a cinematic shot and that's what I got.

The shot is taken in studio, with a 800W halogen light and a soft box just to bounce light. Water is done with stuff like this

I wonder how people killed each other before guns were invented?


There are (and there were) many ways to kill a man - guns make it easier.

Not sure on what you did for processing with the background, but the look the gun fits.. one of my favs. I expect this to be high, I would expect to see a ribbon on this too.. nice!

hate the hammer coming back and finger on the trigger since I want to promote gun safety, but the image is very well composed, lit and creative. Nice capture
