First Model Shoot/Last Shoot w/ K10D
Posted By quickpix

Well this was my last shoot with my Pentax K10D and it was my first experience w/ model photography as well. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be. Its tough getting the picture you have framed in your mind to transfer over to what you capture w/ your camera. I think the hardest part of the experience was actually just giving out instructions to the model on how to pose haha. I ended up showing the model what I meant by demonstrating the pose myself which seemed pretty hilarious. This may be my last shoot w/ my K10D but I'll still be around since I'll be picking up a Pentax film SLR for photography class :) Anyways, here are the pictures. Please give me your constructive criticism. These aren't all the pictures from the shoot but just a small sample :)

Up for sale is my Pentax Gear! I'm going to be switching over to the Nikon D90 or Canon 50D in the next month or so, so this stuff has got to go!

Here's the list:

Pentax K10D: $250
Description:
Pentax K10D w/ 10, 000 or so actuation's. The body by itself usually sells for around $400ish used but since this camera shows a weird noise pattern above ISO400 and above if the image is not exposed properly so that's why its priced the way it is just to be fair. Its not a problem if you expose image properly. The K10D will come w/ all standard accessories and also has a katzeye focusing screen mounted and also comes w/ factory focusing screen as well as a black roots camera bag and 2gb memory card. Here's the link to the issue described:

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-dslr-discussion/19378-k10d-weird-noise-pattern.html

HIGH ISO Example:



Camera: Pentax K10D
Exposure: 0.1 sec (1/10)
Aperture: f/2
Focal Length: 50 mm
ISO Speed: 1600
Flash: Flash did not fire






Tamron 70-300 LD Di 1:2 Macro: $120
This is a great lens! Very sharp! here's some a sample pic from it. Still has 4 years warranty left!











Sigma 28-70 F2.8-4 DG: $120
Good over all daily lens if your just starting out. Very versatile lens. Sample pic:







Will sell as Whole Package for $450!!

MR-2 Photoshoot

Here's a few pix I took using my car as the subject. I've been practicing automotive photography for the last few months, trying to get that magazine style feel. I've made progress from when I've first started out in April(when I first started learning strobism as well), but I feel like something still is a little off. Please give me your input(good or bad) so I can acknowledge my strengths/weaknesses and work from there.

Equipment for this shoot:
Pentax K10D
Tamron 70-300mm F4-5.6 DI Macro
Sigma EF-500 DG Super
Sunpak 422D
3x Tripods
GI wireless trigger and receivers.

Thanks man. I'm not holding out.. Im just really busy haha. I'll try and post more pix though



The light source is a bare Sunpak 422D at full power. I was really surprised of the cut off line of the 422D (sorta makes me wonder how that would've looked w/ a snoot on).

Yes, I am aware of the sensor dust and it has been taken care off :P



TT model? If you mean twin turbo, then no. I dont think there was a twin turbo model. Yes, I was using a Sigma EF 500 DG super and Sunpak 422D being triggered by the cheap, yet, awesome Cactus V2s
