  • Replied in Sunset
    SOOC means Straight Out Of Camera. To me, personally I try to get SOOC for my personal vacation / family get together shots because I don't want to have to go back and edit my vacation shots in LR ...
  • Replied in The Geese!
    NOTE: I should have said Degas instead of Manet!!! LOL. I am forgetting the names of the Artists. But it was completely something like this that your photograph reminded me of. :) https://www.metmu ...
  • +1 Unless you don't take the saying so literally. Then . . . it is just as meaningful if you are shooting with a zoom. In which case it is suggesting that you don't just settle for shooting from ...
  • +1 Which is what I think the zoom with your feet is meant to mean. Rather than zoom to get your subject big, walk to where you know the perspective will work well, and then choose the lens for that ...
  • Replied in Nah....
    +1 Fair enough. I guess I am looking at chimping as simply looking at pictures as you progress through shooting. But, I still stand that chimping was possible in the film days. Anyone that had a ...
  • Replied in Nah....
    +1 I believe you. I am just referring to your comment . . . "it's not possible shooting film" . . . which, from my experience is not completely accurate. As I mentioned above . . . I used to art ...
  • Replied in Nah....
    But it is (was?) possible with film. I used to art direct photoshoots. Sometimes I'd sit with the photographer and we'd debate if this was the right angle. Or wondered if a multi-flash exposure ...
  • Replied in Macro Lens
    +1 Gerry! Awesome post! Thank you for taking the time to write it! I think this is useful information whether you want to do macro or not! :) It is definitely whetting my appetite to play around ...
  • Replied in Macro Lens
    Slowly I'm seeing the benefits of the macro lens. So since they are designed specifically for this . . . you get the potential of close-up focusing (to increase magnification), but you can focus ...
  • Replied in Macro Lens
    +1 I think, at least for me, that is the difference overall. If you hit the limits of using a telephoto lens for macro shots, and its just not getting you the results you want . . . then a macro ...
  • Replied in Macro Lens
    RE: Off topic . . . I apologize if this is kinda going off on a tangent . . . but I am just really wanting to know when it makes sense to get a macro lens or when to just make do with what you ...
  • Replied in Macro Lens
    +1 Gerry, Great response as usual. Ok. Sorry if I'm taking this thread off on a tangent. Ok. My dad gave me a macro lens (Pentax-A 100mm f/4) when he handed me his manual focus lenses years ago. I ...
  • Replied in The Bees!
    Looking good! Bees are hard to capture! I tried a couple of times. And they are hard to capture. Congrats on getting them. The top one I see a bit of motion blur. Not that that was not possible. I ...
  • Replied in The Geese!
    Looking good! I love them! :) This is a nice strong capture. My only comment, which would be a personal preference, is that I would have given it a bit more space around the bill. A "negative ...
  • Replied in A Zenit K-1?
    +1 This rumour sounds good! Especially if Zenit is buying rebadged bodies from Pentax (Ricoh). Does this mean Pentax would have better / expanded access to different regions / markets? If it is ...
  • +1 Looking good!!! :) There is a lot I like here. :) +1 It's clear what the subject is. And the background really works to isolate the subject. The BG is soft yet vibrant! I love it when you can ...
  • Perhaps there may be a bit of retcon happening here. But, since the term is established by ISO, then it is their call on how they want to present ISO. Yes, how everyone uses it is up to debate. Muc ...
  • I don't know about operational speed, but besides the difference in sensor size between the Q/Q10 (1/2.3") versus the Q7/Q-S1 (1/1.7"), another difference, if I remember correctly, is that the ...
  • Replied in Vision Statement
    I read your comment and then it hit me. Besides the Leica / Panasonic / Sigma alliance bringing the strengths of three different companies together, it also gives its potential customers stability ...
  • Have you asked this question in the Pentax dSLR forum? https://www.dpreview.com/forums/1036 You might get more response. :) Take care & Happy Shooting! :)
