Tell us About Your Photo, Michi Joel

Low-light scene shot with the Pentax Q7

By K David in Columns on Jun 27, 2016

Each month we pick a forum photographer with a stand-apart image in a non-contest thread. This article will allow the photographer to tell us a bit about their photo and himself, providing a larger context to the image.

Michi Joel posted a stunning night-time photo taken with his Pentax Q7 in the thread Let's Share Shots with Q! Thank you, Joel, for taking part in this ongoing series and for this fantastic example of Pentaxian overnight and small-sensor photography.

DIY: Turn any Manual Pentax Lens into a Cine Lens

Declicking Pentax Lenses: New Hot Video, Old Trusty Lens

By Mister Guy in Columns on May 28, 2016

Many articles on Pentax Forums try to give you opportunities to click your way to a bargain.  This is about how and why you might go the other way.  The beautiful quality and feel of legacy Pentax glass might give you a good enough reason to consider popping to a used lens store and declicking your way to a deal!

In essence, by declicking a lens, you can make the aperture ring turn as smoothly as the focusing ring.  This can have many benefits, especially if you're into shooting video.  Read on to learn all about it.

A selection of great photographs posted recently

By PF Staff in Columns on May 22, 2016

It's time for another round od Editor's picks. We want to show the diversity of good photography that is presented on PentaxForums. The below is but a tiny tiny selection of the many outstanding photographs from the past four weeks. We hope that it will inspire you to go out and shoot (some more) and also browse the many places on the forum where our users present their work.

We have picked four photos this time and present them in no particular order. Click any one of them for a larger version and to browse between them.

First up is a photo titled "Duality of Types" by user Geodude. We like the striking composition and the refelctions which brings this image to life. This image was originally posted here in the Post Your Photos forum.

Editor's Photo Picks, April 2016

Some of the great photographs posted this month

By PF Staff in Columns on Apr 22, 2016

Welcome to the second installment of our monthly column, where we present a number of photographs that stand out amongst the many photos that our users have posted the past month in the various sections of the forum.

Since we don't monitor each and every photo posted, the selection may seem a bit random.  If you come across a photo that you think deserves a shout-out, be sure to leave a Like or comment in the thread where it was originally posted!

First up is a photograph of the northern lights shot in Alta, Norway. We find this one truly unique in that all elements have come together beautifully: The foreground, well-defined subjects in the distance, the stars, and last but not least, the light phenomena, captured here so that you get a sense of pulsating light. This photo was posted by Nitrogliserin in the Post Your Photos forum.

"Northern Lights" by Nitrogliserin - Pentax K-3, 12mm lens

The next pick is from the Mini-Challenges, Games and Photo Stories forum with the theme sunsets. It was captured by user Hattifnatt in Circus Park in Romania. What makes this image stand out (besides it photographic qualities) is the spookiness it conveys, at least for yours truly! I cannot help but wonder what's lurking in the shadows!

We are closing with an image by nEjmEd shot on film with a Pentax K1000. It is fascinating how the circular pattern makes an otherwise ordinary photo into something very special. Add to that the technical mastery in the form of excellent tonal range and contrast.

Some of the great photographs posted this month

By PF Staff in Columns on Mar 24, 2016

To counterbalance the recent abundance of gear-related news and resources, we would like to make a return to the photographic side of Pentax Forums.  In this monthly column, we will present a number of stand-apart photographs that our users have posted in various sections of the forum.

Since we don't monitor each and every photo posted, the selection may seem a bit random.  If you come across a photo that you think deserves a shout-out, be sure to leave a Like or comment in the thread where it was originally posted!

This column may be written by different editors from time to time which should ensure some variety in the selection.  Click on any photo to enlarge.


I have always had a weakness for shooting macro so I'll start out with this rose photo by Cee Cee from Australia. I found the photo in the Post Your Photos forum:

Little Joey"Little Joey" by Cee Cee - Pentax K-30, Tamron 90mm Macro

This photo stands out by being tightly cropped and shot on a blurred, dark background. Focus is spot on and depth of field controlled nicely.
