OMG Christine, how did you achieve that look of the Stonehenge?

It's very, very cool pic.
It was taken on FE35, heavily cropped, and then I ran a barrage of effects on Color Efex Pro on it. The original was very boring.

Love those two shots, particularly the background - white is so boring.

I've not heard any specific issues about using the camera in a studio, but I have heard of overheating flashes. I didn't have any issues using my HVL-F20AM to trigger my HVL-60M, nor have I encountered any over-heating issues, even when using the flash in burst mode over at least half an hour.

What sort of lighting did you use for the shots?

Thanks , maybe i shouldn't take much notice of canikons

These were shot on a creative night at the studio i use , so the lighting was
already set , both of these shots were taking on a infinity curve using Bowens heads ,
like i say already set

I'm going to be in the studio on the 24th of this month and i guess ill be using the a7
as the main camera for the majority of the shots .

Only had time to take this shot , the weather here is atrocious at the moment so
ive not really had the opportunity to go shooting

I don't think you will be disappointed , the 28 - 75 has been a favorite of
mine on my k5 and it looks like ill be using it a lot on the a7 too.

If you are using flash - the 1/160 sync speed may be a bit limiting, but there are ways of compensating.

Sorry to hear about the atrocious weather - I remember landing in London in Feb a few years ago, and it was a beautiful day - flowers were out, birds were singing lalala ... Then it rained continuously for the next three weeks I was there :-( Lucky it was a work trip, not pleasure.

You've captured the gorgeous light in some interesting and very nice ways.

Agree - superb backlighting control - in both Michelek's and your shots.

I was out for a short walk around town (Newcastle UK) and popped into
one of my favorite store , a real old fashioned camera repair and dealer

i seen a old K mount Tokina 24mm f2.8 on the shelf and thought it would
be shame to leave the store without it
Greys Monument


Greys Street


These two images were taking using Pentax-M 28mm F2.8
Newcastle Quayside

Fantastic colours on those shots. Nice lens indeed!

Pentax M 28 F2.8 - I wonder how that compares to the Praktica 28/2.8 (screwmount) that I have - unfortunately the aperture is locked into wide open because it was designed for the Spotmatic (which unfortunately no longer works).
