Nice shot. Good detail, even a glint in the eye.
Processed very well too.

Another country road photo with the 16-50 after a very light dusting of snow.

I'll second the question. Watching Rondec's shots here, and how he makes the landscape of Indiana seem paradisaical, I want to know his technique. Not only tripod and the like, but how he sees.

I'm not Rondec, but it's pretty obvious to me how he does it... it's called WORK!


Seriously though, Rondec seems pretty motivated to be up and out during the "golden hours" as you can see by the position of the sun in most of his shots.


That takes effort and commitment, unless you happen to already be out and about... heh. It really is the best time for certain types of landscapes though.

As stated above, he he works during the golden hours and if you look at the times he posts his photos, I don't think he ever sleeps either.

Thanks.

No tripod. I wanted to get pretty low to the road, so I was kind of crouching down in front of my pickup truck shooting here. I do think getting up early or, going out at sunset really makes a difference. I like to include the sun in my shots and so I know where it is going to rise and try to be there just as it gets above the horizon. Roads are sort of interesting to photograph with wide angles too, because it makes them look they are going forever.

I do sleep, but I usually get up at 5 am, which gives me some time to exercise and edit some photos and check the Pentax Forums before I need to stir out. I keep an SLR in my vehicle and I often will just jump out and snap a few photos on my way to work. Most of my photos are taken within 15 miles of my home.

The hard part for me is trying to capture what I think I'm seeing when I am shooting. I use Nik Effects quite a bit, both the RAW Sharpener and Color Efex. For images that have a really wide dynamic range, I use Photomatix Pro and use the natural setting, which doesn't seem to look to HDR-ish to me and doesn't give a lot of halos. When I get the photo back in Lightroom, I will then bump shadows a little and that's usually about it.

I can't say I'm a great photographer -- just someone who really enjoys seeing the beauty around and having a camera with me gives me a reason to be out and about early in the morning.

I hope that helps.

Great composition, lighting and post enoeske. For me, the tones in cheddar and shrimp are always a challenge. Nice work.

Well, still hoping to do better, but these are my first decent results shooting flakes with the K-3. I'm not sure why, but it seemed easier with the K-01... Anyway, the white balance came out very blue in these shots, but after some correction in post, I found I quite like that coolness, so in the end I left it.

Pentax-M 135mm F/3.5 plus reversed Vivitar 28mm F2.8 - almost 5:1 macro magnification.
