Looking for something else, I happened upon this and realised I'd meant to upload it ages ago.
Being a bit restricted as to where you can stand while firing was going on, I found myself a bit frustrated. The machine gun loaned itself best to having a photo taken, partly since it was on the end of the line.
It took a bit of messing around to arrive at the composition, shutter speed & aperture (1/25s, f/32) that I liked. The small aperture was necessary to allow the relatively lengthy exposure time which would give some motion blur. The benefit was the pile of spent cases being in focus thanks to the depth of field. Forget now whether I focused on the firer or the cases, think I experimented with both.
All C&C welcome, thanks.
