jade on blue: K-01 and our cat

I knew that our new blanket would make a nice color for our Siamese cat and his similarly-shaded eyes. Shot with Promaster 100mm macro at f/4, 1/40s, iso 5000 and processed lightly from DNG. Too slow a shutter so he's not sharp, but hey it's a portrait so all is good...

Duncan learned a few years back to hate big cameras, when I used the flash once or twice - he yowls and faces away from me whenever I put the K-5 to my eye. However, the K-01 has not flashed him and it's since it's not held up to my face he's more relaxed. As long as I promise to take natural-light shots and risk a bit of blur, we'll get along fine.

You should try getting a 50 F1.4 or 1.7 lens, the faster aperture will definitely help prevent the blur indoors.
