Recent style photos
Here's how I shoot nowadays. This photo was taken at the Northern Area double
Fita Star in 1995, when I broke three Scottish
records. It's a pity that the original photo wasn't a bit larger, you
can't see much detail, but the bottom rod and flat V-bar setup are clearly
visible, as is the archer's belly :-( This photo is Copyright (C) J. Smith,
The next shot shows the follow-through, which should be relaxed, with the bow
reacting forwards. This photo is Copyright (C) J. Smith, 1995.
This is an old photo showing how I used to shoot, with a
side anchor and two-finger loose. It also shows my old bow, a Marksman
Portland 2000, which was re-painted many times (it was originally a rather
horrible brown colour). I've also changed the V-bar, twin rods, arrow rest,
quiver, tab, fletching colour, and I don't use a chest guard anymore.
