I've been digging/finding for a year or so, but I never really took pictures because I'm a terrible photographer. I recently bought one of those simple light boxes to help, so hopefully these pics came out ok. I apologize for how dirty some of the bottles are! Feels like the lighting in a fitting room, very revealing... ANYWAYS, I've done a little research on these bottles & I look forward to learning more!

Those pictures are fine. A few people on here are very experienced photographers, maybe even professionals, but I believe the majority of us are just bottle collectors.
Nice bottles. Keep those pictures coming... everyone enjoys seeing what others are finding. Roy

Thanks, Roy! I realized it was less about the pictures themselves and more so my methods of taking them... I would constantly place the bottles in different locations for lighting/take pics at weird angles. At one point, I was lying on the floor trying to take a picture & said to myself "this is ridiculous" :p So now they have a designated picture box. Done haha

Perfect, RoseOnTheRocks.
This is a fun hobby for me, I enjoy every part of it, the preparation, the hiking, the digging, the cleaning, the tumbling , the
history, and connecting with people who share similar interests and experiences.
You don't have to be an expert at anything here, just have fun and keep smiling!!! Roy
