Re: A beautiful model, a Vespa, and many cherry blossoms


I didn't use any flash or reflectors. Most of the shots were exposed for the sky in order to have nothing blown out. Given the incredible dynamic range of the K5, underexposing and lifting the shadows works very well. The noise is extremely low, even if you push it by several stops.

Number 3 was the exception in the series: it was overexposed and the sky is blown out. As it was against the sun, her face was quite dark, but I recovered it in pp.

I find the K5 sensor to be simply amazing. So much, that I don't really use ND grad filters anymore when shooting landscape. Shadow noise is so minimal than exposing for the sky works wonderfully.
