A few pictures from the last events at the museum. Im still unsure how to work in these lowlight situations. But it is a good training. I think i pp to aggressivly, but im not sure how to adjust correctly. Using 1:1 doesnt seem to be the best idea with this kind of shots. I try to get rid of the noise but at some point it seems to be pointless, the pictures just get washed out.

First a few from the Taekwondo presentation at our Korean Festival.

The rest is from our Latin America Festival. (last one at ISO 5000 and was hard to work with for me)

I think they look great. Action shots in low light are challenging. From what I have seen the K-3 seems to do quite well in low light.

I acquired a K3 last week and am just starting to appreciate its capabilities, especially in challenging low light situations.

Here's one from a university basketball game I shot last week using the K3 and SMC Pentax-DA* 50-135mm F2.8.

I shot RAW at ISO 6400, 1/1000s & F2.8. I'm happy with the final image.

Great shot. A bit of help from some light on his face.

Sometimes I seem to get the settings correct (when I take the time to think), but usually need to do post processing when I quickly take shots of opportunity.

Bangkok building cleaner. Sigma 18mm-250mm @ 180mm; 1/400 @ F8, ISO 1600, no processing other than RAW to JPG.

Migrant construction worker in Bangkok. Sigma 18mm-250mm @ 148mm; 1/80 @ F9, ISO 200, took some time in Lightroom 5.6 to get this..... and not particularly happy with it even now.

I think they look good too and they are hard subjects to capture. I especially like the 1st one.

I don't think you need too be so aggressive with NR. A little noise is okay and it allows you to keep a little more detail. Further, I find that if the scene is exposed correctly then noise isn't such an issue. Just as a side, you can hide some noise by increasing the blacks a little. Not enough to make the image muddy but enough to hide a little noise. I do it all of the time with my concert photography.

I used that technique with this ISO 5000 photo because I wanted to keep the detail in the subject.

Received my K-3 a few days ago too. I think I'm starting to get the hang of it. It's definitely very different from shooting with the K-01. I look forward to growing into this camera.

Hope the K3 works out. It is very different from the K-01, that's for sure.

A couple of shots with the DA *16-50

Wonderful capture and light. Range of tones is very nice indeed.

Cheers,
