This picture was taken outdoors mid morning, using a 105mm lens. I decided that I wanted to try and capture the workings of the weapon while being fired. Therefore, I used a fast shutter speed of 1/800 sec to freeze the action, which also allowed me to hand hold the camera. This in turn allowed me to keep the ISO as low as possible and to use a large aperture of f/5.6 to give a narrow DOF, to isolate the shooter from the background.
