Beautiful bridge in Qiong Tai Xian Gu park in the town of Tiantai, China. A magical, remote part of China and I met no other travellers from outside China on this trip. Lovely temple and mountain hotel there too.

I do a lot of studio days and I'm proud to be a Pentax maverick in a room full of Can/Nikon slaves.

Thanks Ivan. You know I've worked in London for 30 years and still every month I visit a bit of it I just didn't know existed. You never tire of the place.

Apple Digital Camera RAW passes over Pentax K3 again

I took over 200 studio shots of a model shooting RAW on my relatively new K3 yesterday only to find Apple's Aperture can't see them. They come in as DNG files but it can't display them, mighty devastated. I spoke to an Apple Aperture techie for a long time and even he had to seek internal advice but he came back and said Pentax haven't supplied Apple with the code needed for K3 RAW images so at present they will not display in Aperture.

I very nearly bought Lightroom on the spot, assuming it would work but found a free converter by Adobe, Adobe DNG Converter that converts the DNG files into a type that Aperture and probably other programmes can use. It seems there is not one common standard for RAW and each camera brand creates their own propietery version of RAW which doesn't help matters.

Just turned midday here in a chilly and wet London, ( what's new there then ) and joined the forum last night 24th Jan 2014 so hello to anyone reading.

I've been interested in photography since being at school when I'd spend Sundays at Brands Hatch racing circuit taking pictures of the bikes when people like Barry Sheen, Phil Read, Agostini used to ride. Both round the track and close up in the paddock where all the bikes were prepared. Would develop the film after school in a blacked out toilet, literally, then print up some 8 x 6 black and white prints on an old knackered enlarger and sell them at school. I was the one and only member of the school photography club run by our pottery teacher at our all boys school.

My biggest shock came at the age of 15 when I went in to the pottery teachers back room store cupboard to hang up some prints I'd made and left soaking overnight in a tray of water. He said to come and collect them lunchtime and he'd hang them up for me to dry in the morning but as I was early into school that day I thought I'd save him the trouble. He must have done some printing of his own after I had gone home as there were more trays there with prints soaking. Not knowing what was mine I lifted up a few face down prints only to see fresh topless shots of our newest and one of a very few young female teachers at our school. My hands were trembling and I couldn't get out of there fast enough for fear of being caught and getting a thorough beating for looking at our pottery teachers after hours hobby !

My first SLR was a Praktica. I always wanted follow photography as a living but I had a Saturday job in Boots the Chemist ( yes on the photography counter ) and the older chap in charge told me I'd never make any money out of it so I went into the more traditional world of work. Years in I run my own graphics and restaurant outdoor fit-out business now and can pay my bills so in my mind things have worked out OK.

Kept up the photography as a hobby over the years, snatching time when you can. Had a Pentax K5 when they came out then recently bought a K3, like the rest of you hanging on in there for a full frame. One day !
