    Turning pens

    Hi, guys love the forum. I do visit regularly and I am creating pens. I do keep up to date with what is going on. My photographic skills are zero so I don't post pictures. But I'm making pens and they are selling the Xmas orders are coming in. I recently did a run of ball pens for a Children's Charity that went down well.
    So I am creating just not posting pictures.

    Post some photo's Dave, some people here have gone from zero photography skills to the top of class advice from other members.
    Unfortunately I am not one of them.

    Your contributions are greatly appreciated Dave. Don't be shy about photos though - there are no photo police here to tell you off. Occasionally you might receive a comment here and there, but they're always given in the spirit of helpfulness and friendly hints and tips. We'd rather see your pens whatever the standard of the photo, than not see them at all.

    Always good to see others work so post away with photos even if it just a simple pen on a plain background and close to being in focus. No need for any special equipment.

    There is always a little leg-pulling so a good sense of humour helps.
