Ivy Pt. 2: Film vs Digital (K1000 vs K1)
Photo Location: Seattle, WA 
Posted By: alan_smithee_photos, 06-06-2016, 04:21 PM

Following up on my first last post (https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/12-post-your-photos/322741-not-work-safe-...fa-43-fun.html), here are some shots comparing digital shots from the K-1 with film from a K1000 (my trusty ol' $40 never-been-CLA'd purchase from craigslist four years ago) along with a few medium format film shots thrown in for good measure.

The K-1s are all with a FA 43mm 1.9. The K1000 was loaded with Lomo 800, mounted with either a Voigtlander Nokton or Ultron; the Fuji GA645i was with Lomo 400 (both at box speed).

I can't see any evidence of flash or studio lighting, but do you manage to get the walls and floor lit with just sunlight? I really like your photography, thanks for posting here!

Thx much!

It's all natural light. There's a bank of west facing windows that run along one wall, about five feet off the floor that give the room really fantastic light. Depending on the time of day it can be creamy and smooth (mornings, especially cloudy Seattle mornings ) or have hard, bright sunbeams (late afternoon). It can be a little tricky to shoot sometimes but I'm pretty used to it now.

Nice images. Even though the model is on some very minimalist support at times, she manages to look (mostly) quite comfortable. Good use of light. The way some photographers except a model to contort herself typically ruins many images for me - if a model can't hold a pose comfortable for 30 seconds, it just end up looking unnatural. By that guideline, with maybe the one exception, you posed her really well.

It's always to hide a flaw or accentuate a feature, Demondata. The models all understand that and do it knowing it makes them look good.

Your own family members will benefit in your pictures of them by taking their cues.

'Pushing the ears foward' to separate the chin from the neck feels odd but really works for anyone, for example.

The side by side is great, the natural light makes the comparison even more interesting. The warmth of the Lomo 800 is a little distracting, but I love the shots - THANKS!
