At The Cloisters Museum, NYC, with the Pentax K-01
Here’s where a rear LCD helps. You can nonchalantly point the camera towards the subject to meter and set exposure and focus, and then snap silently when the decisive moment arrives.
The reds on his shirt are a little strong. I can pull some saturation and perhaps luminence to make the folds more visible, but I wanted to show what it looks like out of the camera.

Each has a different expression, which makes for such an interesting series. They are so lifelike that seeing them sitting on the table is a bit disconcerting. I have expect one of them to say, “hello.”
I’ll be sharing thoughts on the K-01 on my blog What Blog is This?
Detail from “The Lamentation” on Flickr.
I’d never spent much time contemplating medieval religious art before. I am struck by the wonderful artistry and craftsmanship by much of the art here. This piece, “The Lamentation”, is a wonderfully expressive piece, one of my favorites of the whole place. I could spend a long time just marveling at the figures and the story that they tell.
Tech note - the figure on the right was a bit overexposed on the cheek and forehead, so I’ve run a gradient filter over the right side in LR to tone it down. As I have seen with the K-5, the K-01’s DNG files are quite elastic.
