Pretty!

The face looks maybe a little too lightened and smoothed to me, but still a great model, pose, and mood.

Walking around the Pike Place Market after work one night earlier this month with Maddy.

All photos shot on Cinestill 800T (tungsten balanced, pushed 1-stop) with the classic setup: a K1000 + M 50mm 1.4.

Thanks all!



Ha! Alas, no. But this space is so nice, cheap, and readily available it's tough to find anywhere that can compete!



Ah, the metal conduit is still there; it's in the studio down the hall. :)

It is nice to e shooting that Acros again. I still love the super grainy look of Delta 3200, but it's nice to change it up every now and then with the silky smooth Acros.

I know it's heresy but I'm pretty much ready to throw in the towel on LXs. I've bought two, both of which have issues which are essentially un-repairable. One still shoots (mostly) but they're super fragile. My K1000 seems indestructible and basically shoot circles around them. I'll probably put them up for sale here to someone that will love them more than me. Looking at them and thinking of the money spent (and opportunity cost) just makes me angry.

Re: Leicas, one thing I'll say in their favor is resale. Nothing holds its value like a Leica M (except maybe their lenses).

Weird behavior: image in playback has a filter applied but is normal on download?

Heh, thx!

My comment was more: they're both digital files. The data differs but in the end it's...data. Output, rendering, etc., differ. But it's 1s and 0s.

I am curious about your workflow, though, and how the in-camera stuff you use compares to what you do with RAWs in post.

And bravo on that Nokton. It still has pride of place in my bag! :)

Not to be pedantic but a jpeg is just as much "a string of numbers" as a DNG. Obviously, I get the point that a renderable version has to be created for playback -- unless it's a camera that has no preview (like a Leica M-D).

For me, I'd rather look at a histogram than some jpeg approximation of a post processing filter. But again, I'm not knocking anyone's workflow, just saying that this in-camera processing and stuff adds no value for me. I'm sure plenty of other people dig it. Hell, I'd pay a premium to get rid of that stuff (although no a Leica M-D sized premium :) ).

I'm sure you guys are right. Thx!

Don't get me wrong, I love the K-1 but man it would be *so* nice if you could just wipe all that useless (to me) stuff off the camera and keep it simple, simple, simple. That's another big reason while I still shoot so much film. Filters and whatnot add no value for me and only introduce complexity (mucking up the user experience, etc.).

Interesting that you could have them out of sync (esp if you're not shooting RAW + JPEG; I was shooting only RAW).

The first thing I looked at was WB; it was set to AWB, which is what I'd been shooting previously without issue.

It's odd to me that you could have two different sets of settings being applied like that. Can't really think of many cases where I would want that to be the standard behavior. I never shoot jpegs so haven't really poked around in any jpeg-specific settings (kind of oblivious to whether they existed, I guess). Still wondering how I could fat-finger my way into doing that. I could see if I tweaked something way down in a submenu but whatever happened would've been from me inadvertently pressing some button(s) on the back during normal shooting. \_(ツ)_/

I'm not sure, but wouldn't that processing have been applied to the DNG when I opened it up in Lightroom? I figured I'd done something like that but when I opened up the files and they looked normal -- not filtered/cross-processed at all.

(Also, where is that setting? One of my only gripes about the K-1 is how easy it is to inadvertently change settings. The 'lock' feature helps but can also be a little annoying.)

Was shooting the other day and somehow got the camera set in a weird display mode: after taking a photo the image displayed for review appeared to have a filter applied to it (color and tone shifted in a weird way: desaturated, shifted to a sickly greenish hue), and the look of the "filter" seemed to shift from image to image. I didn't know what the camera was doing (I check the settings and couldn't find anything changed from my standard) and couldn't get it to stop. I cycled the camera, swapped the cards, etc; nothing fixed it.

When I downloaded the images from the card to Lightroom the thumbnails initially showed the same filtered look, but when I edited them the filter disappeared -- they displayed as normal unfiltered RAW files. Bizarre.

I still couldn't figure out how to change the playback display back. As it happened, I was planning to upgrade the firmware to 1.40 and thought "hm, wonder if that will reset it?" After updating the firmware, no dice: the playback image was still being filtered like before.

I went back to the settings and did a reset. Problem solved. But I want to know how I got in that situation to begin with -- and how to change it -- in case it happens again.

Any ideas?

Your Thoughts On Lensbaby Lenses

Funny, I just posted something related to this: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/12-post-your-photos/334053-people-trinity...ml#post3830092

I had an old Lensbaby Composer that I never warmed to. Cool effects but too fiddly.

I actually prefer creating these sorts of effects through lenses (perspectives, etc.) vs. just manipulating them digitally. (Then again I prefer shooting film most of the time too :) ).

I will say that I'm impressed with the build quality of the new, higher end Lensbaby stuff (like the Velvet 56mm). I'd love trying some of the vintage designs they sell (the Petzval or daguerreotype lenses).

People Trinity -- warming up to the Lensbaby Velvet 56mm 1.6

I bought the Lensbaby Velvet 56mm 1.6 soft focus lens last spring on a lark. I've been smitten with the vintage, soft focus look from folks like Vivienne Mok and others and thought it'd be fun to have this piece of glass in my kit. The lens is really pretty nice, but I've never really warmed to it. It's so soft at wide apertures that it's really hard to even tell where the focus point is. I wouldn't say it's gone from dreamy to nightmare, but it hasn't gotten the use I'd hoped.

Anyway, I shot with a super cool person, Trinity, earlier this week. She was specifically interested in a softer, more feminine look than in some of her other shoots. Figured I'd give the Velvet another go.

This time I really liked the results. There's a tendency to want to get super close with the lens but stepping back a bit worked much better (for me).

Anyway, here are a few I did a quick edit on yesterday. I used the Mastin Labs presets, Fuji Pro 400H for the color, Ilford Delta 3200 for the b&w. all All were shot either at f2.8 or 2.0 (1.6 is just ridiculous).

K-1, Lensbaby Velvet 56mm 1.6
