Thank you so much for your reply!
I am currently using on camera flash and off-camera speedlights.
I have been renting strobe equipment and that is what I want to invest in.

I have been renting my lighting equipment for too long and this Black Friday Cyber Monday I wanted to treat myself to a whole new lighting setup.
I will be using it primarily for portraits business and headshots and I am completely lost because I've done too much research and now I have no clue what to buy.
My failsafe is always Pentax and this forum so I'm wondering and hoping some of you might have suggestions for me.
Right now I just want a good key light and stand etc etc

I know that I set my color representation to sRGB but suddenly it is showing: Uncalibrated

What have I done & how do I fix it?

Sometimes I love the complexity of this computer camera & other times I want to scream!!!

Thanks in advance for your help!~

ps. What have you found is the best setting for auto-focusing?
I spent an hour shooting chickens & the grass was in focus but not the chickens & no matter
what I adjusted it wouldn't stop focusing on the grass.

Would you mind letting me know where you found this set-up for $825?
I was thinking about doing the exact same but lowest price I can find is $1200!

I am looking at new~

I will be in a meeting until 5pm but then I will get back to everyone & troubleshoot~

I have it on AF-S and I think it is the focus selection that I need to pinpoint.

I will be back & thank you all sooooo much!~ I love living in the SOLUTION
rather than the problem!

My troubleshooting has consisted of me throwing the camera over a bridge....

Seriously, I have been troubleshooting with my manual & the ebook & I haven't gotten anywhere.
It never occurred to me that it might be the lens. It is a relatively new lens that I bought in Dec/16.
Has never been dropped or anything but babied!

The lens I used is the Pentax HD PENTAX-D FA 28-105mm f/3.5-5.6.

I did change out to a 50mm once but I didn't like the results & went back to the 28-105mm.

I kept it on portrait orientation during the entire shoot!

Hello.
I feel certain that there will be a simple solution to this but, I am losing what is left of my mind,
trying to figure it out.

I usually keep my camera on aperture priority but, I had a shoot yesterday where everything
was clicking along perfectly but, when the model put on red lipstick, the focus shifted from
her eyes to her mouth.

Nothing I did would change the focus on any priority or AF mode so, manual would work
perfectly, right? Wrong.

I have searched YouTube for videos about this, consulted my manual & consulted the great
ebook I bought on this forum & I am either a complete moron (the jury is still out) or my K-3
is buggy.... can you help?

Childhood wonder in all its glory. She was talking about the Easter Bunny right before I took this shot.
Later, I asked her mother if she had makeup on? "No, never. That is just her and youth in our family!"
