OK. I must preface this thread with the fact I "used to" try and take nice photographs. And recently I have attempted to take some decent shots of MTs with my "better" camera. I would like to think some of them are good enough to get a photographer badge, but I also admit most of my normal pics are taken with my phone for general comparisons in most threads. So, I am unaware if I qualify. Here are some of my favorite shots of MTs taken recently. And please feel free to check out some of my other flickr stuff from the days I was a film camera guy.
MP600 in a Tree by None, on Flickr
OG Multi Tool Titan Club by None, on Flickr

JPSt & Derringer out to pasture by None, on Flickr
JPST & Derringer in Snow by None, on Flickr
SwissChamp XLT Stuck in Tree by None, on Flickr
Camillus and Antique Pen Light by None, on Flickr
SwissTool and Watch by None, on Flickr

Any input on improvements regarding these images would be much appreciated! I have always wanted to be someone who takes good pictures, but I am also lazy a lot of the time and don't put a lot of effort in pictures used for informational/comparison images.
I will be requesting a badge, but I am not aware if I am worthy or not of it. Hopefully I can keep improving the subject, composition, setting, and framing in the future to grow as a picture taker.

Here is one of my favorite film photos taken with my Canon AE-1 back in "the day". Not a multi tool, but it is part of a machine.

Nice pics, but for what it's worth:
The human mind isn't attracted to centered images.
Try putting your subject in crossings of 3.


You'll be amazed of how an "ok shot" turns into awesome ;)

Thank you! My "good" camera actually has the crossing setting, so that will be a fun thing to try soon! :cheers:

For those of us who understand German, I recommend the knife photography tips and tricks of Stefan Schmalhaus. See this short Youtube video for an impression of his photos.
