    Your Guide to Taking Amazing Holiday Photos

    Last updated 10 months ago

    It is not uncommon to receive an abundance of family photo prints in the mail during the holiday season; however, it is uncommon to find one that truly stands out. Whether you strive to have the best holiday card or you just want to capture your family’s candid moments around the holidays, there are certain methods that you can use in order to create brilliant holiday photos.

    Fill the Frame
    Holiday photos tend to consist of a group of people standing in the center of the frame, but the group should be taking up the entire frame. There should be no extra space above, below, or next to the group, so that the viewer gets a close up look at the subjects and is not distracted by anything in the background.

    Take Many Photos at Once
    The more people you have in the shot, the more likely it is that someone is not paying attention, blinking, or making a silly face. The best way to ensure that you get the perfect shot is to take as many photographs as you can. Taking several in a row over the span of a few seconds will increase your chances of getting the best shot possible while refraining from trying the crowd’s patience. This results in a beautiful snapshot of a happy memory.

    Anticipate the Moment
    It is a good practice to take many pictures over the course of an event, trying to anticipate emotional reactions. Since it is impossible to know when surprising or eventful moments will happen, the best chance of snapping a picture of them comes with taking as many pictures as possible. You will end up with a few extraneous photos, but you can take comfort in knowing that you will capture the best moments.

    We have a great Deal of the Day on Vortex Viper HS Riflescopes!

    Last updated 10 months ago

    As I am sure you are aware by now, a little while ago we started a "Deal of the Day" promo. This, "Deal of the Day" is posted everyday I am here at work, assuming I find the time each day to do this, lol. 
    We buy lots of demos, close-outs and assorted new product deals and sometimes we wind up with enough to offer crazy cheap deal on something awesome. 

    We recently had a Sports Optics Event here in the store and opened a couple of the Vortex Viper HS 2.5-10x44 V-Plex Riflescopes, #VHS-4302 as display units. They were pushed into rubber grips on wood stocks so they show no marks and basically are same as new but we will not put these back into new inventory which opens an opportunity for you to buy these for only $299.99!!
     

    An evolutionary upgrade, Vortex Viper HS riflescopes offer hunters and shooters an array of features sure to be well received. A new optical system highlighted with a 4x zoom range provides magnification versatility. The ultra-friendly eye box with increased eye relief gets shooters on target quickly and easily—because shooting opportunities can be measured in fractions of seconds. Built on a ultra-strong 30mm one-piece machined aluminum tube, the Viper HS delivers increased windage and elevation travel for optimal adjustment. 

    Optical Features:
    XD Lens Elements - Extra-low dispersion (XD) glass increases resolution and color fidelity, resulting in crisp, sharp images.
    XR Lens Coatings - Vortex proprietary XR fully multi-coated lens coatings increase light transmission for maximum brightness.

    Construction Features:
    30 mm Tube - Provides greater strength and wider adjustment lattitude.

    Two Tricks for Fabulous Family Holiday Photos

    Last updated 10 months ago

    We know that creating the perfect holiday photo is no small feat. We imagine all the kids sitting patiently and quietly, the posing is perfect and everyone’s eyes are open!  The truth is, some of the best family photos aren’t perfect but they are authentic, which is what makes them so special.  Here we share two secret weapons to help you capture that fabulous family photo.

    Secret Weapon #1:  Recruit your smiling aunt, funny uncle or any other relative with a sense of humor to be your assistant.  Trying to corral a group photo single-handedly can create frustration for everyone involved.  Asking Uncle Ed to stand behind you and make funny faces for the kids and command the attention of the adults will leave the photographer free to focus on capturing the image at the right moment.  It’s one of the most effective tricks you can use, and many pros are quick to enlist an assistant for these exact purposes because it works.

    Secret Weapon #2:  We tend to be so focused on getting the perfect shot that we forget to be in it!  Spending a few minutes to learn how to use your camera’s self-timer so that you aren’t fussing with this important function while everyone is already posed and waiting.  Making the time to practice with the self-timer before all your guests arrive will take the pressure off and help you be a more relaxed photographer when the time comes to gather the group for the family photo.

     

    Today is an update on some new, demo and used product that we are blowing out as year end opportunities!
