Came across this when I was taking photos of the red deer rut with my K5

Taken with the 8.5mm standard lens, wide open.

I mostly take light box photos of things I'm trying to sell, I don't have more "fine art" such as the bear drawing above.

It's okay, I was curious about depth of field for this type of work. Was this taken with the 01 lens? If they would release extension tubes for the Q, I'd have a pretty hard time not buying it.

All of the lightbox stuff I've posted was done with the Q + 01 Prime.

The photo of the bear was at ƒ/4.0. Considering how "3-D" the scene actually was, I think this was a relatively wide aperture to still get everything "in focus". The backdrop ramps down quickly, the bear is reclining such as she would on a pool lounger. The top paper is just short of vertical, the bottom paper just short of flat (look for the curvature at the edges to see how much warp is present).

Both of the photos of the lens were taken at ƒ/5.6. I believe that the focus distance was very near Min. FD, or about 8". I confess that I'm not big on macro, but I know that photos such as these from APS-C generally fall off much faster, and not many lenses focus at 8".

taken last night, pretty standard evening shot, nothing brilliant that's for sure.

but so far i like the colors that the Q provides.


01 prime.




actually wondering if i should crop the top and bottom down a bit?
