This months assignment in our local photo club was to create Kitsch pictures - kitschy, cheesy, tacky - whatever you call it. So I grabbed my Q7 with the 08 to combine some of the most scoffed at kitschy routines in photography, among them:
  • sunsets
  • overly dramatic extreme wide angle shots
  • overdone HDR treatment
  • overdone saturation
  • white vignetting
Those two pics was what I came up with - both done with Q7/08 and of course tons of PP:

Bridge (Sunset/X Wide Angle/HDR/Saturation):



Car (X Wide Angel/HDR/Vignetting):



Have fun!

Orion Nebula - Pentax Q-10 as Astrocam?

On the 2nd of January, I finally got a few hours of clear skies to try out my Q10 attached to a small TS Imaging Star 474mm f/6.78 APO refractor telescope:



2 x 20 images stacked in Registax4; assembeled in Image Composite Editor (ICE); final processing in PhotoImpact X3. 30s exposure time at ISO 1600.


Seeing in the wintertime is worse than lousy from my 4th floor balcony in the midst of a city, surrounded as I am of hot roofs and smoking chimneys, so excuses for the fat, funny looking stars. Still I am very happy to see that the Q10 handles the dynamic range so relatively well.


Now off for some better and darker skies......

Some nice Lichen yellow growing on a dead branch

Found this bright yellow Lichen colonising a dead branch in a hedgerow local to me, nature has the most marvellous colour palette all of year round if you look hard enough!

I'd love to jump in a time machine and bring a Q and modern telescope to Galileo...

Corners of this field are rounded, it seems? I have a vague memory that years ago I saw on TV news that Americans were playing soccer indoors in a tiny field like this but maybe the walls weren't transparent, and I thought that Americans were weird.

And that reminds me of the days of the original New York Cosmos, that's maybe 35 or 40 years ago? They signed with Pele and Beckenbauer, Pepsi was doing a campaign in Japan where the bottle caps work as lottery tickets, and lucky winners would be invited to one New York Cosmos game in NYC. As young kids playing soccer at a local club, we'd buy Pepsi after practice sessions whenever we had some coins (despite the coach's discouragement) for one spring or maybe summer, it was substantial money for us and we of course wasted our money away but it was fun!

Strange that one picture somehow triggers the flashback of these things, I now remember the faces of team mates and coaches even though their names were lost in memory.

That's an ice hockey rink. There may very well be ice beneath the artificial turf. Lots of stadiums host both ice hockey and other sports like basketball. The famous Madison Square Garden in New York City, for example, can host the NY Rangers hockey team on Saturday night and the NY Knicks on Sunday afternoon. How do they do it? They don't melt the ice, they just cover it and then assemble the basketball court on top.

Here's a time lapse on how it's done:

They were the 2 biggest stars but they had plenty of other names, an Italian striker Chinchilla???....They came to Sydney and played an exhibition game, a mate captained the Aussie schoolboys team in the curtain raiser....around 79ish???

Thanks John, it'd be good to watch and photograph that action from close by too!

Thanks John, that's a very informative and entertaining video.
And the field being hockey field, my memory now makes much more sense to me because these American soccer players on the news were doing "wall pass", just like hockey.

Italian guy, wasn't he Chinglillas or something? And what a cool experience your friend had!
Thanks for sharing your football (soccer) memory with me, I digressed but this was fun!
