A Sample of the 40 Limited & 100 Macro from this Weekend
Posted By: benjikan, 03-13-2007, 03:21 AM

Here is a sample shot with the 40 Limited and the 100 Macro Pentax lenses. It was the first time I used the Pentax for Still Life. As the left image is intended to be very abstract you may want to know what it is..It is a "Bulgari" Diamond Ring...

Excellent shots Ben. I'm sure the first one took more skill, but I like the second one better!

You mean you wouldn't prefer the "Bulgari" Diamond Ring? Gee I wonder why...

Really good

Were I leafing through the pages of Vogue, both of those images would make me stop and gawk. Love, love, love the shoe coming at me and the lighting of the model in that second shot.

All of the images are "Double Page" format, that is, each Fashion Shot will have a matching Still Life to re-enforce the concept of "The Diva" there is also a High Heel, I Pod, Dior Lipstick, Armani Perfume and a Font Graphic. That makes a total of twelve pages. It will come out in April 2007 for "Style Mone Carlo" magazine. You may view their website at:

That ring must be really pricey considering it's from this prestigious company. I was surprised by the lack of sparkle from the diamonds but I'm guessing you shot it like that on purpose.

The model throwing the shoe was a fantastic shot!

Diggin' the shots, Ben. I still can't figure out that first one. Can you post a more blown up view of the ring?

Noooo. Not the garbage bin!!

Way to nice of shots. The color purple then the action and then the expression....a little deeper into the shot each look. It is easy to appreciate your finished work.

Curious..how many shots does it take to get the shoe in a right position airborne like that?

Just post all your photos here, in the "Post your photos" forum. I wouldn't ever make a recycle bin for Pentax photos!

Have you got a piece or two of nylon holding up the shoe, or was it actually thrown?

Very nice and original.

Always humour from your posts.

And I believe the airborn shoe is probably "pasted" there? Otherwise this photo would be a lot a lot of work!!

Great eye candy too
