It has been a long time since I posted some of mu photos on pentaxforums..
I have been practicing with new macro stuff (tubes, lenses and flash) and somewhere down the line my K-5 died on me and I had no other option but get a K-3 second hand. Also past year I've started to do some simple stacking in photoshop to enhance the focus in some off my bug photos.

Some examples of the results:

I have a bit of winter boredom going on.. not that much natural subjects for photography and my main PC is out due to motherboard issues :(. So time to share some bokeh experiments from last fall that are already on flickr.. Both taken with meyer optik grlitz trioplan 100mm lens.

I don't have the lens you are talking about, but other lenses not so expensive. The panagor 90mm f2.8 (which is also branded vivitar 90mm) and vivitar 135mm f2.8 close focusing (max magnification 1:2), I prefer these often over the more expensive DFA 100mm macro or FA 100mm macro, both standing on the shelf here :lol:

The 90mm is favorite!

Nice one! Is your helios 44 in m39 mount? (How many different 44's models are there? not counting the 44-2 or higher -)

From me another picture from a m39 mount helios 44 (chrome/silvery finish and 13 aperture blades)

I also use the ee-s focusing screen plus recently I got the o-me 53 magnifying eyecup which helps a bit. I consider both of them a marginal help but for the most your eyes have to be able to do the job plus It is crucial to nail the shims with the focusing screen.

In the meantime I did join... 2nd is done, now to see what will be a nice subject for 3rd of bokehcember :rolleyes:

You mean the f1,2 photographing? It can be a challenge... For me the challenge lies in finding the right subjects to go with the short dof. I have a s - type focusing screen in my K5 to help with pinpointing the focus and post-processing for me means mostly removing chromatic aberrations / fringing.

I am owner of the pentax K 50/f1,2 nd recently I bought the A 50/f1,2 ... I heard some people talk about the A being a bit sharper or more contrasty, plus it's way easier to use flash with the A version. I will probably sell the K version. Though I really love the A 50/f1,2 I wonder sometimes about the Revuenon due to difference in minimum focus distance.

One that I made yesterday:

oh oh, my LBA had kicked in in awaiting the spring... today I could almost hug the postman when he arrived at my door 10 days before I would even start to expect him. With a beautiful chrome m39 helios 44 lens. 13 blades.... I think I'm in love :rolleyes:

I think only with the 1964 preset macro takumar that goes 1:1 magnification (not the super/smc/s-m-c) because of the difference in amount of aperture blades (preset version has 8, later versions have 6 I think), also there is a russian 50mm macro lens; the industar L/Z that can give those star shapes.


Here is another bubble bokeh picture from past month: (also given more red and orange in lightroom, not because I always do, but I am in the 30 days trial so I am experimenting the possibilities)

It has been a while since I posted a picture in this thread... I have had some fun with my macro takumar 50mm preset yesterday. After some time of not using this lens because it had had some problems with loosening screws (I get unsure about lenses falling apart in the field :o) I already fixed the problem a long time ago with some soft locktide but the fun was gone, yesterday I found the fun about this lens again :D it has star allure!

I am new to this lens club ... didn't know it was here, I picked up a pentax k 50mm f1.2 this past winter (and it feels like it has just past, straight into summer, a week ago or so :lol: ) I still have to learn more about the f1.2 shooting, it seems in harsh light 1/8000 at iso 80 just isn't fast enough to keep from getting blown out highlights. Well, this topic gives some inspiration for sure!

With my k5 body being broken and in repair service (4 to 6 weeks, middle of summer... aaaah!) I took out my older friend, k10d .. with kiron macro lens.

Sticky: The EXCLUSIVE GALLERY ("PEG") at PentaxForums
Posted By margriet

I received comments from judges this past night and finally there's no comment containing the blabla "no national geographic photographer" bla bla (which I got also with the past 3 pics I tried to get into the peg)
In stead there is still a huge amount of opinions, some really like when I use shallow DOF and some don't like it or suggest results might look better with a bit more DOF. I guess the overall average opinion fell just a bit short for this picture which is fine, good judging with understandable and respectful comments. There's just one judge that was saying :

"DOF is too shallow so parts of object are out of focus. It would not qualify for PEG in any event because it does not meet the criteria.
Perhaps my assessment will encourage you to study the art of photography.
"

In his comment he draws the conclusion it isn't possible in macro photography to have a part of an insect or spider to be the subject instead of always having the whole thing in focus. I always try to get just that part in focus to bring alive the subjects I study in nature, so it feels it's my "art" to have small DOF... at least it should bring some creativity. Does anybody know where are the criteria to get photographs into the PEG written down? Have I forgotten to read things before trying to enter this photo? Or is this judge talking about "the photography rules" in general?

I always respect judges or other photographers when they give their opinion about my photo's, tips to improve are always tried out by me in the field. By being this resolute or absolute this judge confuses me about what in fact art is, to me by definition, not just following all the rules to perfection..

kind regards,

Margriet

I just love jumping spiders, so I really was content to find new to me species after moving to another house in the Netherlands...
This species has some great looking eyes.. metallic green. And it came visiting just when I was outside on the terras / patio drinking coffee... as I'm quit lazy I didn't mind not to have to go look for one :lol:

I tried out the Kiron macro lens with pentax helicoid extension tube.

Hi there!

Here the outside macro season definitely started! Some pictures I took with the Kiron macro lens I had for a long time but it was horribly to use due to all kinds of rubbish and weird residue inside on some glass. Last winter I finely got the nerves to clean it myself with good results (at least I didn't damage anything whilst doing it :lol:) .

1st: I love the jumping spiders ....


Heliophanus by margreetz, on Flickr

2nd: Lots and lots of these moths fly around the freshly green leaves of birch trees ...


Smaragdlangsprietmot - adela reaumurella - 2 by margreetz, on Flickr


3rd: This jumping spider I had the chance to use Kiron lens with helicoid extension tube to get closer... It's my favourite of the pics because I never seen this species before.

I hope you enjoy! I love the jumping spiders shot with Q some replies ago!

kind regards, Margriet
