    Hi Fred,
    I'm looking forward to seeing those images. Even with "Live View" I have a tough time getting that focus just right. For now, hooking up a monitor to my K5 is beyond my pay grade.
    Thanks again for sharing and have a Happy Holiday.

    Hi Fred,
    I just wanted to "Thank You" for sharing your expertise and knowledge on this forum. Last year you encouraged me to take my snowflake pics to the next level after seeing one of my postings. This summer I gathered all the necessary parts and made a copy of your "snow catcher". We finally got some snow in Buffalo, NY and I had a good first try. I need to work on my lighting technique and a few other things but feel confident I'm heading in the right direction. I've submitted three images on PF if you'd like to see my first attempts.

    Thanks Again,

    Gary (Zman on this forum)

    About Me
    I've been shooting with Pentax equipment since 1979 when I acquired a Spotmatic SP1000. I went digital in December 2004 with an ist*DS. I then progressed to a K10D, then a K20D, K5, and now a K3. I also shoot IR photography on an old Sigma SD14, and a converted istDL2.
