Focused Photographer
Camera: K10D 
Posted By: GryphonPhotoCat, 11-09-2014, 10:15 PM

This is an old one from my collection - I haven't posted it any where but was wondering what you all would think of it. I was shooting for a silhouette style but I still wanted to maintain detail and be able to see the face of the photographer. I cropped to balance every thing focusing more on the camera and the highlights on his hands. Tried for more of a cool tone tint instead of sepia because I like how it makes the image feel colder.

This was shot with a Pentax K10D with a Sigma 70-300 lens if I remember correctly. We were out on the river shooting eagles and I started to have more fun taking pictures of my fellow photographers then the birds.

I like it! (Well, not the fact he's holding a Nikon, but a nice shot, none the less!)

It is what it is...... Out of a club of hundreds of photographers there only about 3 of us that shoot with Pentax. Would be nice to see some marketing in the US. I started shooting Pentax first out of a sense of loyalty to the old film spotmatics my father used so often. Also at the time the K10D after every thing I read about offered the best options for me and what I wanted to do. I now have a K5 and a K5II and a K-01. All very nice cameras.
