Photo Of The Day: “Baby Fresh”


For your Flashback Friday, here’s a shot from nine years in time, 2008. The gear used was a Pentax K10D and the awesome Pentax FA 77mm f/1.8 Limited prime lens.

At that time, I enjoyed greatly experimenting with flash and was using a portable softbox. Man, if you can see the detail on the original file you might be convinced 10 megapixels could be enough for anything! πŸ™‚

I may be weird, but more than just photographing a cute photo of my baby daughter, I wanted my lenses (especially the sharp ones) to reveal every pore, every detail and the 77mm f/1.8 certainly did! I think the glamour models would stay away from me πŸ™‚

This baby by the way is the same little girl two posts back that I shot with the Nikon D1, now nine years later. The Time Machine marches on!

The K10D is a great Pentax classic now and the prices have gotten super affordable. I did have some issues with it in low light or in high iso images, but this shot reminded me of why I loved it in the first place. And with today’s prices, heck it might be worthwhile seeking out another one! Happy Friday 😊

  1. Oh my….do I remember this shot! Hard to believe how fast time has flown. I have fond memories of my K10D….especially now that I’ve obtained the magnificent but fatally flawed (for me) K-1.

      1. Correction! Using the K-1 with manual lenses is anything but obvious. Fortunately some smart guy worked it out and I found his monograph on the web. All is well (thank goodness)!
        Actually I was close…just one setting off.
