I lost a bet on this wonderfull sportswomen against the reporter for our newspaper. The Slovenian Mina Markovic became second and the Austrian Anna Stòhr won the championship. Have to buy a beer next tuesday.

10mm ISO 100 f/3.5


43mm ISO 800 f/4


43mm ISO 400 f/5


For whatever reason, the K-01 meters much better than my K-5; the images are very consistent shot to shot. I'm quite impressed with this little camera.

Hadn't shot anything in a while so I decided to try out some ideas in the living room (makeshift studio).

Been falling behind on this thread, but thanks to many of you - gda13, tclausen, LeRolls - for the kudos on my macro adventures!

Last weekend I went down the "flash-diffuser-from-a-Pringles-can" route. I quickly figured out that my 90mm plus tubes was too long for a single can, and will require a telescoping setup made from two cans. Since I only had the single can on hand, I went back to the Pentax 50mm F/4 Macro with 50mm of tubes. Using the onboard flash with this setup makes a really, really light 1:48:1 (greater than life-size) set-up. After some tests, I settled on F/14, 1/180s and iso 200 at MFD (bugs standing on light, reflective surfaces might require iso100). Recipe: head into the garden, approach bug slowly, very slowly, and when focus is reached, hit the shutter!

Not A Jumping Spider:




Red Eyes #2:




Timini The Jumping Spider (#2):




Sans dessus-dessous / Upside-down:




This last one was shot while holding the camera upside down as the bug was hanging underneath a leaf.

I'm having a blast with this camera.

Very detailed shots of really interesting critters! Nice work! I'm glad you're having so much fun! The K-01 is definitely the most bang for my buck I've ever gotten out of a camera!

A concept that's been knocking around in my head for a little while now. Fairly pleased with how it turned out.

Nice dog, and good shot. Peaceful. Interesting chairs in the back, too. Did you add to the fall off? It definitely helps this photo.

Love the combination of textures, lines & colors.

Thanks! Here's a non-macro (!) late evening shot taken with the FA 28-105mm F/3.2-4.5, using a makeshift support (a rock bench & the width of my hand to prop up the lens and get the right angle). The scene is the front of the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts, where there is currently a Chihuly exhibit (of which I posted shots a while back). They've installed a Chihuly glass sculpture out front:




p.s.: Dark shots like this look better on a black background (like over at Flickr), IMHO.
