Photos: Baoer 801 Fountain Pen

I bought a pen at the BWI Fountain Pen show last Saturday. My searches on Google, Amazon, and Ebay have failed to locate the exact make and model. UPDATE: I’ve discovered that it is most likely a Baoer 801-

It’s silver, thin and looks similar to the Jinhao 126, with differences. It has a hooded nob and the finial is longer than the pictures I’ve seen. Additionally, the clip design is a little different and it used a plunger converter, instead of the twist style that I’ve seen on my other JinHao pens. It has four rings around the section.

I played around with my Canon 40 DSLR, 24 mm EF-S lens, and two Yongnuo YN600EX-RT Speedlites to try to photograph it.

After getting started, I remembered that photographing shiny objects is really, really hard. I’m not especially pleased with the results, but I thought I’d share anyway.
