Pentax K100D

By Bryan • photography • 14 Feb 2007

It’s all mine!

The four best frames out of approximately 100 taken tonight on my first session with my Pentax and tripod. Of course I wanted to tackle the most difficult photography first, low light conditions (one of the main reasons I decided to dump almost half a months salary into a little black box).

I don’t think National Geographic will be calling anytime soon.

Gulou Square

Beiji Park

Hunan Road-Shizi Qiao

Ma tai Jie

The worst frame of the night. In my own defense, it was one of the first shots I made with my new piece, and I still hadn’t hadn’t figured out the proper aperture/shutter speed combinations, nor how the automatic modes would perform under low light conditions. Unfortunately, I think the couple believed they had stumbled across some hardcore photographer and wanted me to email them the image.

The first two images were taken in manual mode using a tripod, with the other two using automatic night settings, while the last monstrosity was taken in manual without a tripod (moronic).

    We love your avant-garde interpretation of “Couple in Park”!! Now THAT’s modern art!

  2. I like several pictures you took.I find that the person who like photography always can find the views and special prospects i never notice.Maybe i need to buy a camera.

    The color looks really good. Did the lenses arrive?
