Third photoshoot


Link Posted 22/09/2018 - 13:15
Long time since last time I have been here. How are things? It seems that Pentax world is slowing down and falling behind, but I am still an happy user.

I want to share one photo from my third photoshoot in my studio. Learned a lot of stuff so far, much more to figure out.

I am much more confident with the tech. The cactus tech once paired with a RF-60 is flawless. The Godox studio light is very handy to use too. I fell in love with gelled flash on vinyl background, also because I can't find an alternative solution that is as cheap.

I intend to start a series of posts on my blog on how to build a very cheap studio (if you have at least a room or a garage for it). What do you think?

Now a photo from my last set (the lighting is still a mess I know):

now I want to highlight the fact that I still use the phenomal tokina 28-70 2.8. We are talking about a 130 pound lens here:

look at the detail (considering the jpg compression too).

However I am forced to use the live view to focus, which actually I don't mind at all in a studio, because the backfocus on this lens is not fixable with the fine adjustment. Is the debug firmware still an option on the k1? Any way to fix it?

I really like this. Three of the corners are a bit dark, but otherwise I am impressed.

When you say the BF is not fixable. Is that because the camera does not recognise the lens, or because you have tried the +10 adjustment and it is not enough?

If the former you can use a Global AF-FA which will apply to any lens mounted that does not have a specific "apply one" adjustment.

unluckily I mean that +10 is not enough. looks more like a 11 or 12
