VOTE NOW: $1000 Giveaway!

Let the voting for the winners of our $1000 giveaway begin!

The top 8 entries with the highest number of votes will be the winners! Remember that we have a grand prize of $500-1,000 of merchandise at B&H, a $150 gift card, a $100 gift card, and five $50 gift cards.

In addition to the votes cast in this poll, one additional percent of votes will be assigned to each entry for every 1,000 views it receives, divided by the number of pages.
So, for example, if 200 total votes are cast in the poll, and a 5-page article gets 10,000 views, an extra 4 votes (2%) would be added to that article.

Without further ado, let the voting begin! Please share this poll with your friends, and be sure to read all of the articles, which are also accessible here:
Member Photo Articles - Camera Technique - PentaxForums.com



Here are the finalists, in alphabetical order, as in the poll:


  • A Photographer's Guide to Perspective Distortion
    There are many places on the Internet that try to explain perspective distortion. Most of these sites are technically accurate but not all that helpful in understanding how or why to use perpendicular distortion. This article takes a fresh down-to-earth view on distortion.
  • Do It Yourself Tripod Mount: How to build a tripod mount for telephoto lenses
    In this article we will show how to build a tripod mount for telephoto camera lenses without a factory-installed mount.
  • In-Camera Time and its Importance
    Most people will not care about the accuracy of the clock in their camera. But for those of us who shoot with multiple cameras, or wish to sync our images with a GPS log, the issue is a lot more important. For some, it will be enough just to get two cameras to agree on the time. For others, having the accurate time recorded in each photograph may be essential (GPS log sync).
  • Making the Most of Long Exposure Handhelds
    We explore the four fundamentals of marksmanship and how they apply to improving one's photographic technique.
  • Martini Splashdown: How I made the shot
    To create a photograph like this one you must master not only high speed photography but also light and color! Read on for all the tips!
  • Old School Ideas for Digital Photography
    I started taking photos during the 35mm film age so I consider myself old school. I embraced the digital age head on with the purchase of a K10D over four years ago and have never looked back to the good old days of film. However, there are quite a few old school ideas that transform well into the digital era.
  • The Perfect Zebra Photo in 3 Easy Steps
    A thought-provoking article about seeing and taking photographs of what you see.
  • Picture Effects Without Computers
    This article offers a list of some of the most common but useful and artistic effects you can do with just your camera, any DSLR, and no computers! Read on if you'd rather use your camera than spend time with post-processing software!
  • Post-Processing Guide Using GIMP
    After going through a few thousand photos from a holiday trip, I developed a post-processing workflow that makes this activity less frustrating using GIMP!
  • Sea&Sea Underwater Case Do-It-Yourself for Pentax
    In this article we will learn how you adapt an underwater case to a Pentax DSLR, such as the K200D. This is much more secure that just using a plastic bag!
  • Shooting a Starscape: A quick how-to
    So you want to get a shot of the night sky to show stars, meteors, and/or the Milky Way? It's not that hard but you will need a few basic items. This article will tell you what you need and how to use it.
  • Star Trail Photography: An Introduction
    We have a fun option available to us to shoot the heavens, and it doesn't require much beyond what you probably already have in your general photography kit. This article shows you how to easily shoot star trails.
  • Time Lapse Guide for Beginners
    This guide will help anyone with a Pentax SLR make his own high quality time lapse videos. A time lapse video is a sequence of photos which shows some event over time and which has been combined into a video. It sounds simple but there is a bit more to it than meets the eye at first!
  • Using Linux for Photography: Where do we stand?
    Where is Linux today as a platform for image processing? The Unix / Linux philosophy is to write programs that do one thing only and do it well at the cost of lesser integration. How well does it work?
  • What to Pack When You Backpack w/ Minimal Weight
    For me photography has lead to a love for the outdoors, and the outdoors has increased my love for photography. Sure, i could hit the trails sans camera, documenting the trip with mental snapshots recorded on my internal memory, but being able to interact with my surroundings through a lens is what makes being outdoors special.

There is something wrong with the poll list, I see two "Old School Ideas for Digital Photography" lines and none of my favorite "The perfect Zebra shot in three steps"
