The weather has sucked in the Northeast for the past several days. However, today I received my cue back from the Searing Spa on my birthday. A complete refinish, new premium elephant ear wrap and new joint protectors. I couldn't be happier with the results!


I have a new camera and the learning curve is still in effect.

Thanks for looking,

I think your depth of field is off and you might want to change your Aperture settings on the camera
your pics look like you took it at an f 2.8 or something, try to increase it to f 8 or f 22, you'll get more in focus.

Some of the pinpoint focus is on purpose. I will try changing the f stop on whole cue shots. I read on AZ that Monstermash suggests a 17-35mm lens. I may ask to help me set up lights and my camera one time he's at Paul's shop.

The lens will only help with the amount of cue you can fit into the frame, unless of course it's just a better lens then the benefits are greater, but F-stop will open up the amount in focus, it will improve the total focus on the pics but you'll need a tripod to avoid blur from your shaky ass holding the camera. Even on macro shots where you want super close high def focus you still can have a wide depth of field.

Jim is a damn liar and knows what he's talking about.

I used to have a 17-35mm Nikkor. One of the few items I've ever sold that I regret selling.

Is Rich still around?
