Cat butt on Flickr.
I’ve taken thousands of photos of Nate, but none of his butt. Until now. This one reminds me of those photos of people lying face down on the ground, one of which was a controversial winner of a well-known photo competition. Nate could give that photo a run for its money I’m sure.
Pentax K-01 with the DA21mm F3.2 which is more or less welded onto the camera. 1/20s, F3.2, ISO3200. In this age of F2.8 zooms, F3.2 doesn’t sound like much, but ISO3200 and image stabilization help a lot. With cat butts, among other things.
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.
Another shot at ISO3200.
