Sorry for the compositions but I was at my computer and wanted to continue my checkout of the Pentax 70mm Limited Lens. I made these images quickly, thanks to the Pentax gear. I captured raw files and then uploaded them into LR to resize and make jpeg images for my blog. I made no adjustments or tweaks to the files. These are Pentax images rendered by Adobe LR without any input from me. I really like the image quality of this system. I am use to manipulating my raw files generated from my previous Fujifilm and Olympus cameras and lenses but I’m now enjoying these more.
In the past I have been raising shadows and decreasing highlights, adding clarity, etc. and “fixing” all of my images in one way or another. With my Pentax gear I will probably only be doing this with my B&W images if I end up primarily using Pentax limited lenses.
I have still not decided what I’m going to use/do for my Homewood photography. While I like these “raw images” made with my Pentax gear for use on my blog and digital display, they may not print as well in Homewood publications, and they would definitely look different from what they have been using. Those print differences as well as the sounds made by my Pentax gear may limit my use of my Pentax gear when producing images for Homewood uses. In addition I don’t have the needed range of focal lengths for my KP camera for some Homewood events, so I’m holding onto my micro 4/3 gear for the time being. I am also still weighing the advantages and disadvantages of the heavier Pentax gear with better image quality vice the lighter, lower quality micro 4/3 gear.
