Not the best photo. I know lol! But it was taken from about 6 Km's (3.75 miles) away! I used my 40 year old Pentax SMC "M" 200mm f4 lens on my Kr. 6 seconds ISO 100, I think around f 16... 17th floor of the Best Western Lake Buena Vista, you can just make out the castle behind the Contemporary

It has been a weird Fall for colors. Some trees completely barren of leaves and others just now changing. Here are a couple from our block.

Those colors are beautiful. We don't have a fall like that down here in southeast Louisiana.

I'm so proud of my son, now whenever I go out to shoot anything he wants to tag along, my Kx has become his! He loves the Lowepro Slingshot 100AW. This day here, I forgot to turn it back to Auto Focus for him and it was in Manual as well! He was in complete Manual focus and control, he played with the "numbers" to make his photos look the way he wanted lol!

On my Downtown Elgin Walkabout testing my new camera, I came across this guy (or gal).

Hi:
Great pictures everyone! I'm finally ready to buy a flash for my K-X. I know I've asked for suggestions in the past but I couldn't find your responses in the excessively long other thread.

I've looked at the Pentax AF 540FG and the Sigma EF 530 Super as well as a 600 series.

Any suggestions? I want to use it for extra lighting at Tae Kwon Do (at most 20 feet away and to be able to bounce the light indoors).

Thanks.

Michelle

I have been using the Sigma 530 series (ST and Super) on our cameras for the past several years. I have no complaints. The 610 series (according to a tech at Sigma) is the same as the 530 series except it is more powerful. The Pentax flash has not been upgraded in several years and is less powerful than the Sigma. I prefer the Sigma Super model because it has the wireless trigger and all the controls on the back. The ST is a more basic model with a swivel head and you use your camera menu to control the flash. Both flashes will do the job for you.

I have an older AF240z, and just recently acquired a pair of Yongnuo YN560. Everything is set manually but with some practice decent results can be acquired by setting the YN's to Slave... I will have some examples ready by the end of the week I hope!

Heres a pic just using the one YN bounced of a Gym ceiling at my sons Christmas concert



Heres another pic of a boy waiting his turn... loved his pose and expression

Heres a couple 3 flash setup shots. I am still learning how to use them, in fact my 365 project revolves around that this year so lets see how I progress!

January 1, these were shot at ISO 200, 1/125s, f6.3 on an old Vivitar 28mm Manual prime f2.8 I picked up at Value Village for $10. My first time really trying it out I bought it 6 months ago! Anyway I made this as difficult as possible with EVERYTHING Being Manual. LOL, that was at my wifes insistance that I get to know what photography is supposed to be like lol. Manual Focus, Manual Flash Settings, Manual Aperture, I love a challenge and hope that learning from the basics will help me understand exposure and setup that much more by the end of the year.
