the bokeh of the FA77 is outstanding ( but you guys already knew that)

self portrait:
the coolest, no doubt

thanks for the compliments guys, that self portrait actually started a bit of a debate in my portraiture class. Because the image I posted is actually upside down. In the original, the image of me in the lens is upside down. I prefer the Former over the Latter...considering the way we read images it makes more sense that way.

henry:

really like the 2nd shot in your last post. Looks like the "grain" is a bit uniform though...did you add it in using LR3's new "film grain" simulation tool? If not still a neat treatment!! Love your shots since I can't get out and shoot anymore, well only for a while I hope...but you stuff is always nice to see.

Today I'm a happy member of this club! Got my first FA Limited today, the 43. Had resisted for a long time as it seemed redundant with my best lenses. Now I see it was those lenses that are redundant! :-)

Excuse my daughter's dirty face, she'll pose briefly but no way will she submit to a washcloth.

brecklundin, hi. This kind of "grain" is due to the ISO 1600 on my K-7.

What color space are you using to share the images?, I don't think it is sRGB, as the images look very different between color corrected Mozilla and explorer, thought you may want to know that.

But, lately my explorer is acting strangely as well, with funny fonts that do not respond to font changes , so it could be an issue at my end, so would like to know the color space.

That is simply a marvelous shot Digitalis. Do you mind telling us how you set it up? Obviously your head is behind the lens, but that is all I can figure out.

Hmm that is interesting. I notice that the colors are a little more subdued on my Internet Explorer as well for a few of them. My camera is set on sRGB now, but perhaps before it wasn't. Thanks for the heads up.

Update: The two at the top are sRGB. The two on the bottom are Adobe RGB.

For doing a self portrait...... there's a mirror involved (check the lettering).

I'm going to try this out... but I only have an M50/1.7 so will need a longer arm, or maybe a smaller head

Yeah! I noticed it most with the last image (which is my favorite of the lot) then, it is the color space making the difference.

correct, I used a mirror to set everything up. I also will point out that the smaller the f/stop of the lens is the closer it will have to be to the camera/mirror when you take the shot because the image in the lens will be smaller.

I did a version of this image with the new Leica noctilux 50mm f/0.95 ASPH but I needed more than two fingers to hold that monster up (at $12,000AU I really did not want to drop a lens that expensive) I liked the version with the 50mm f/1.2 because it is simply my favourite lens in my entire collection of pentax glass.

I used a Single wireless AF540FGZ flash with a sto-fen diffuser at my lower right to illuminate my face and hand. As Steve pointed out I used a mirror to align my face in the lens and I used Live view on my K-7 to check on my composition. The camera was of course tripod mounted, It only took me two frames to get it right I was most concerned about how my hand would appear. All I did in post processing was flip the image, and sharpen and convert into monochrome.
