First test of my "new" Tamron Adaptall2 28mm f2.5(autoportraits.)
Lens: Tamron Adaptall2 28mm f2.5 Camera: Pentax kx ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/200s Aperture: F2.4 


Here ISO 200, shutter speed 250, f2.5.
I wanted this one with high contrast...but i feel it's a bit overprocessed (i like it though).
I just started with the studio lights a friend lent me, and it was the first day with my new 28mm that i got from Sholtzma.

I've been playing with onesided light and cenital light and i am looking forward to start setting more complex setups.

Nice test shots and lens! I like the top one best...a bit of mystery to the pose.

Nice subject. He's got some seriously great eyes and great bones, that guy. He truly looks like he should be wearing the robes of an Aztec king or something.

#1 is an interesting pose, a little less squashed composition (compared with #2) and has good tonal range aptly chosen to create the strong shadow areas and hence the more dramatic result. Appears to be a good lens.

Thanks for the comments.

And it is a good lens..i wanted a wide lens but missed the pentax 28mm and ended with this one...wich i'm very pleased with. (and as a bonus i can use it with my film nikon).
