The Goose Family

By PF Staff in Favorite Photos on Feb 3, 2013

I love shooting nature, and being a student, I use a lot of second-hand manual focus lenses since the in-body shake reduction of the Pentax K-7 gives me the option of using old lenses with good results. Last year, when I was visiting a friend in Wayne, Pennsylvania, I happened to capture this photo which is one of my favorite shots till date.

I chose this picture because it  1) illustrates the principles I want to discuss and 2) I really like both the pre and post-processing results.

I would like to tell my fellow Pentaxians how I crafted this critical masterpiece.

What "Makes" A Photo?

By PF Staff in Favorite Photos on Jan 27, 2013

I hesitated when I chose to use this photo for this submission. It' is not a magnificent photo. It was taken with a 4.1 MP point and shoot. It was "shot from the hip", the highlights are blown out. The composition could be better. In reality it was an "accident". However, I really like this picture. I would have to say it is on my short list of favorites. This got me thinking: What really "makes" a good photo?

Perhaps it is the story that makes a photo. I want you to see this picture through my eyes. Let me tell you its story.

Untouched Leaf

By PF Staff in Favorite Photos on Jan 26, 2013

As my favourite photo, I picked one that I took spontaneously, but not without some planning, while hiking in a nearby forest. I actually took a couple from different angles, but I like this one the most. The photo has a simple content and hasn't been edited much, but it is a nice photo. It has some magic about it, even though it doesn't have intense colours, powerful contrasts, and kitschy processing.
