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 themselves, providing a larger context to the image.
Stickl posted the first K-1 photo we've selected for this series, a fantastic shot capturing soft, morning light and fog moving through an evergreen forest in the thread Post your K-1 pictures. Thank you, Lauri, for taking part in this ongoing series and for this fantastic example of Pentaxian nature and landscape.
The Time-consuming Part
By K David in Articles and Tips on Nov 2, 2016
This article looks at some basic software and editing approaches related to astrophotography, including discussions about and samples of specific photos I've shared over the course of this series. Toward the end you will also find resource links for a number of excellent sources on capture and processing techniques. Note that this article is not an in-depth exploration of niche astrophotography editing techniques. Many other resources, both here on Pentax Forums and elsewhere, cover that well. Also, the niche editing techniques are not generally intended for DSLR users.
