K5 Problems Clearly User Error

QuoteOriginally posted by bxf Quote
Just to show that with my K20D, I didn't have the type of problems I'm having with the K5. Also, since I recall some post not long ago stating that the poster was tired of the images being posted and asking for something a bit more anatomical, these should provide some relief
Maybe now we can put to bed the notion that the original K5 shots are a result of your obvious inability to take a good image of this lovely lady due to your lack of skill...

Nice shots.

Thanks, but they're just home snapshots, actually. Interesting how a nice subject can sometimes compensate for lack of proper technique.

Technique is OK

The subject does matter, of course, but I especially like the image with the white top where her face has a small splash of light on it.

The images do look somewht soft, but I presume that is a PP choice in the tradition of glamour or fashion shots. I use a technique in PP that gives me the slightly softer or smoother skin like this while keeping fine details nice and sharp (like the eyes). It is a bit time-consuming, however.

A little fill light off camera (if possible) would be helpful in most of these shots, IMO, but for "snapshots" they are just fine.

Anyway, a bit OT, I guess, so maybe we should start a portrait thread so we can discuss the OT parts more and let this thread get back to the K5 and how well it focuses for you (or not).

I just judge a pic on how it pleases my eye or not, so subject makes an awful lot difference. but none the less you've captured her beauty well
