Second Photo of the Day by WWF - "Rangifer tarandus"

2018-08-13 Thread Ken Waller
I seem to be on a roll... this photo of mine "Rangifer tarandus' was chosen 
by WWF as their wildlife photo of the day.


Taken awhile back in Denali National Park, Alaska, early fall, with a *istD 
and a 600mm f4.0 FA lens on a Gitzo tripod.


I hiked in the bush for several hours tracking a group of Caribou as they 
foraged, happily snapping away as I went - this was one of several nice 
captures I got on that ocassion.

I've used a pump action pellet gun on the really persistent squirrels - not 
to kill them but to make them think twice about stealing the suet - seems to 
work.

Re: Automotive fun

There was a rear wheel drive Escort! Built and sold overseas in the seventies 
IIRC.
In its highest state of tune - with a twin cam four cylinder it was quite a 
ride. Some were raced competively in the U S in several series. 

It sort of filled the gap left by the Cortine.

Do the wildlife authorities mark them with that large a splodge of
blue paint, or does the bear have diarrhea from gorging on
blueberries?


Rick, the blue on his butt is from the crushed berries he sat on while 
gorging himself on the berries.
We saw scat in the area and it was pretty loose as you might expect from a

The compression test results were quite good, with only one cylinder
being a few pounds higher than the rest.  The motor had the after

head gaskets, with the exposed bit (which showed they were

replacements)

looking quite clean, as if they had been replaced along with the new
water pump and timing belt which I found when I took the front cover
off.  A couple weeks ago, I gave up, and ordered the $300 worth of

parts

to replace the head gaskets. Money that I had "saved" when the motor

was

outside of the car and it would have been convenient.

I got the heads off last night and this morning, and sure enough

there

was signs of exhaust leaking into the water jacket, which would have
pressurized the coolant and blown it out the overflow tank, just as

it

seemed.  The coolant system being basically sealed is why the leak
didn't show up on the compression test.

Just to keep it on topic, here are some photos, devoid of artistic
merit, of the cylinder heads etc.  I've got them pretty much cleaned

up

now, so with luck I'll have the car back together sometime tomorrow.

Usable ISO with K-3

2018-07-21 Thread Ken Waller
I almost never shoot above 400 ISO in my outdoor photography, a force of 
habit.
For comparisons I shot some birdy images at the feeder and varied the ISO up 
to 51200, same f stop with varying shutter speeds.


Surprise, surprise but I got very usable captures up to 25600, but not so 
much @ 51200 - which produced a noticeable color shift.


A subjective evaluation that will give me a little more leeway in the field.

Wondering what list members have found in this regard with their DSLRs ?

Re: Birds in Northern California (so far)

Exposures look ok but the focus is off on several.

Kenneth Waller
http://www.pentaxphotogallery.com/kennethwaller

- Original Message - 
From: "Larry Colen" 

Subject: Birds in Northern California (so far)


I'm on a trip to Oregon to deal with parental issues. On my way up I 
went to a tango event in McCloud (Mt Shasta).  Here are a bunch of 
photos taken at several places, a rest stop south of Willows, the Sac 
wildlife reserve, a casino north of willows, and McCloud.
Someone has already helped me identify the Western Kingbird, and the 
flick.  If anyone can ID other birds in the set, that would be awesome.


I think that both the black and the brown birds (at the rest stop) are 
blackbirds, and that I have a bunch of sparrows from all over. The 
pinkish pigeon might be a mourning dove.


https://www.flickr.com/photos/ellarsee/sets/72157697754864334

After grabbing a snack at Floyd's frosty (surprisingly good burgers by 
the way) I saw some hummers and was taking photos of them when someone 
told me about the flick in the pole in front of Floyd's. The photos of 
the flick, the nest with the metal background and the hummers were taken 
with the DA55-300, most of the rest with the sigma 50-500.


If anyone is really curious, the proofset is at:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/ellarsee/sets/72157698251824285

It is less convenient to do processing on the road, I'm hoping to do 
final edits when I get home. In the mean time, I've got a cheap monitor 
as a secondary display, and photos on it seem a lot brighter than on my 
laptop display (a bit over exposed) so feedback on general exposure of 
the photos would be appreciated.

Re: Katmai for Wildlife

2018-06-06 Thread Ken Waller
While I've only been to Katmai twice and both time at Brooks River, I don't 
find it as interesting as Denali in that there is much more to be exerienced 
easily in Denali. The buses in Denali open the park to much more exploring 
on your own than Katmai, which other than Brooks River area is much more 
strenuous to explore by oneself.


I will say that if you want to photograph bears, Brooks River, at the right 
time is the place to be, although Denali offers a wider opportunity to 
capture not only bear but beaver, caribou, moose and wolf. And the landscape 
is simply awesome.


Denali is my favorite national park - I've been there 4 times and the 
photography has been awesome !

The June 2018 issue of Outdoor Photography magazine has a nice article on
Katmai National Park, which is truly a nature photographer's heaven.  We
visited the park 30 years ago and it remains one of the most memorable
vacations of my life.  It is much more engaging than Denali, with a lot
more opportunities for encounters with Alaskan wildlife.  In addition, the
Valley of 10,000 Smokes is a site like no other in America.

Of course, back then I shot only film, with my Asahi Spotmatic.  I need to
go back into my albums and break out some of the images I took there.

Katmai is, in my experience, the best of all our national parks, 
surpassing

even Yosemite and Hawaii Volcanoes.  I highly recommend it to anyone who
has an interest in wildlife and photography.

Re: My Kitchen

Kenneth Waller

- Original Message - 
From: "John" 

Subject: GESO: My Kitchen


I've been working on my kitchen for a couple of years now. Progress has 
been slow, but in the last week or so I've gotten a bit of work done.


I took these with the K-1 and my new smc PENTAX-D FA MACRO 100mmF2.8 WR

https://www.flickr.com/photos/jb_sessoms/albums/72157668977944438

The house was built in 1936. I've written before this all started when a 
drain pipe rusted out inside the kitchen wall and emptied the contents of 
the kitchen sink into the basement when I went to drain it.


I had to tear the cabinets (such as they were) out to get into the wall 
and I found badly damaged flooring & sub-flooring. I'm pulling out all of 
the old flooring and all of the outside walls (interior) and replacing 
them after repairing the structural damage. I'm adding insulation while I 
do the outside walls.


The original sub-floors are 1x8 planks nailed on a 45° diagonal with wide 
oak tongue and groove flooring. I think it must have been beautiful when 
it was first installed.


Some time later the owners glued down some cheap linoleum on top of it. 
When that linoleum wore out, a new generation of owners tried to pry up 
the old linoleum and when that didn't work, they nailed down a thin 
plywood layer on top of the oak and glued down more cheap linoleum. You 
can see the residue of both layers in these images.


I'm pulling out the oak. Sad to say, I ruined a whole lot of it before I 
figured out what I was doing and learned the proper way to remove tongue 
and groove flooring. But, I'm salvaging what I can.


In its place I'm screwing down a 3/8 inch cement backer board & installing 
5" ceramic tile. I found a great bargain on the tile & managed to get 
enough to do the whole kitchen at $0.59 per square foot. But it's a 
struggle working around the appliances, as I have to keep using the 
kitchen while I work.


I can only work a couple hours at a time before the stress makes me sick & 
as bad as it is, the kitchen isn't the biggest problem with the house 
right now. I try to plug away an hour or so at a time, sometimes getting 
three 1-2 hour sessions in per day.


I've got other photos of the work that I'll have to add to this album.

Re: Advice at various stages

What advice would you give someone at any of these stages (or any others 
that come to mind) of their photography? What important things did you 
learn along the way that really helped?


Probably the most important thing I ever learned about photography is the 
value of light. I had been using a camera since I was in my single digits 
and it wasn't until my 5th decade that I was finally came to understand the 
value of quality light. Up to that point, if there was enough light, I would 
take the photo and live with the result. Over the years I was able to take a 
very few images that I thought were good, but I still had no idea about the 
quality of light and its impact on an image. After sitting through many 
slide reviews by several pro photographers, I started to see and understand 
the impact that good/great light has on the image.

different advice at different stages of their learning process.What 
advice would you give to people at different stages of learning 
photography?



Just the concept of “new can have many shades of meaning:
New to photography, or new to taking their photography seriously.

New to digital photography.

New to taking photos with a DSLR, rather than a camera.

The next step seems to be having learned the basics of manual controls and 
processing raw files.


After that, is often studio lighting.

What about the photographer who has worked for many years and feels that 
their growth as a photographer has hit a plateau?

Not much of a drinker. I have an unopened bottle of Tanqueray gin that's 
been sitting around here since before the Desert Storm (FIRST Gulf War)

OTOH, I do occasionally enjoy a sip or two of Southern Comfort. Strictly

I am a recently retired broadcast engineer who is taking up photography as 
a hobby after using it largely only for work and genealogical research over 
the last 30+ years. Most of my genealogical photography going forward will 
undoubtedly be photographing gravestones in B, the preferred format for 
those photos (I am a member of the Association for Gravestone Studies).


I used SLRs for years (most recently a Pentax K-1000). but switched to a 
digital camera (a Sony Cybershot) about 15 years ago for convenience. With 
retirement I decided to upgrade, and recently bought a Pentax K-70 with a 
DA 18-270mm as my walking-around lens. I am still mastering the amazing 
array of settings but am making progress. I am using a variety of colored 
B filters for gravestones, because 1) I am on old guy who was used to 
doing that with film, and 2) although I have done a fair amount of image 
post-production over the years I would rather get the correct image 
in-camera than fix it in post.

Where are the nice full frame birding lenses?


Gonz , you couldn't ask for a better birding lens than the 300mm f4.5 FA - 
that along with a HD-DA 1.4 AF rear convertor gives you a a powerful birding 
lens - check out the images on the Pantax Gallery.
I've had one ever since they came out and it is one of my most used lenses - 
has never given me any trouble.

I don't expect Pentax to be releasing mirrorless cameras rivaling
Sony's or anyones for that matter. Or I don't expect them to produce a
camera aimed at the professional sports photographer market. But their
particular niche, which I would say is aspiring amateur photographers
that like small form-factor cameras with lenses that are not
necessarily the sharpest, but take a more balanced approach to the
overall look of the images, seems to be more and more encroached by
the likes of Sony, Fuji, etc.  In addition, things that are nice to
have, like a nice flash, teleconverters, etc. are pretty much
non-existent or exist only in old versions that you have to turn to
ebay to acquire.  Finally, the dearth of new lens offerings from
Pentax, esp nice primes suitable for full frame digital with modern
autofocus, basically have stopped coming with the exception of the 50
later this year.  Where are the nice full frame birding lenses?  Or a
prime wide angle?  The real sign however is the lack of support from
third parties. Everytime a nice lens comes out from Sigma, or some of
the newer players such as Laoa, the Pentax version is not there.
Given the lack of new primes coming from Pentax, I would love it if
Sigma art series lenses were available for the K-1, but alas, few are.
I thought for sure the enthusiastic response from the photog community
to the K-1 would have resulted in more investment from Ricoh to keep
the momentum going, but it appears that they have pulled back instead.

I'm sure Pentax knows that; I think that's what Mr. Takashi Arai was

Plus, I think you have to account for the interviewer's bias in favor of

what they chose to quote from the longer interview.

Basically, Takashi Arai said Pentax (& Ricoh) are sticking with what they

Actually I'm not sure what he meant... but let's not forget, he's a

Re: What makes a photo work in color or black and white

2018-03-19 Thread Ken Waller
It seems to me that color is more suited to nature photography than B+W, 
especially with closer more intimate subjects found in nature. The iconic 
B+W shots of grand landscapes are sometimes more suited to B+W simply 
because of the simple subject, composition and lighting of those images.


I've also attended numerous outdoor workshops and cannot remember any B+W 
images in show & tell/critique sessions.

- Original Message - 
Subject: Re: What makes a photo work in color or black and white



I think color easily detracts from an image. Many of my own personal 
favorites are monochromatic.


A few years ago I took several Nature Photography Workshops. As is typical 
in such workshops, participants were invited to bring along a few of their 
own favorites for show and tell and critique. The 2nd or 3rd time I 
included a shot of a waterfall we visited at least once during every 
workshop. Rendered in B Which got quite a bit of (mostly negative) 
comment. Then I showed the color version and explained that I felt the 
bright green moss in the center foreground transformed my waterfall 
composition into an image of bright green moss. Not sure I made many 
converts but for me I still think the bright color was a distraction from 
the scene I wanted to portray.


But sometimes color is the subject. E.g., faded paint on old buildings. 
Even there, for me, a narrow palette of colors, if not monochromatic, 
works best.

Since the most effective way to promote discussion on the net is to

thoughts on the subject.


For me it boils down to contrast, and whether you want to emphasize or 
demphasize something.  Generally, I want to deemphasize anything in a 
photo that doesn't make a significant improvement, and I want to 
emphasize things that do look good.  Sometimes color differences will 
make something stand out.  If that's your subject, great, if it's a 
random bit in the background, less so. Similarly often things with 
different colors will have similar tonality, so converting to black and 
white can deemphasize them. Likewise, by tweaking the response to 
different colors in the conversion you can increase or decrease the 
emphasis.


Thoughts? Expansion? Arguments?
