Just posted my Harper's BAZAAR Cover & Editorial Spread shot with the K20D Here: Harper's BAZAAR Pentax Shoot
Wow, those are some very interesting looks you have created. Can you describe your approach to choosing the color palette?

I'm happy for you Ben., your talents are obviously being noticed now that Vogue has invited you to shoot for them. After Vogue, I predict your next assignment will be for ELLE. Keep up the excellent work.
I have absolutely no interest in shooting for ELLE. It could be considered a major step down from VOGUE.

thought Pentax would be trying to make up with a 645D endorsement for you....

they should, the ******s! Nice shooting as always, Benjikan!

What do you think of the Q? Just curious. I know it's not a serious piece of kit, but have you seen one live? They are amazing!

Cheers,
Cameron
Never tried one...Can't say.

For this shoot it was quite simple, the Pentax DA*16-50 f2.8 and DA*50-135 f2.8 lenses.

Nice shot's, but there are a few improvemnts to be made in the shots.
they are:
use aFF camera,
use a 24-70f2.8 lens
use a 70-200F2.8 lens
better AF
better flashcontrol
faster fps

(and yes, this is a sacrcastic reply. As I do think the shots are fantastic, and that a K-5 is more than capable enough to do this kind of work)

Ben is so good, Linda Evangelista said she wouldn't wake him up for less than $10,000/day.

Truly inspiring Ben. I feel all warm inside about the K-5 that the postman is bringing me today. Mind you, I suspect that you could make magic with a box brownie!

Since Chuck Norris's tears cure cancer, do Ben's tears cure oily aperture blades?
