Pentax K3 in the Studio – Brylee

The new K3 digital SLR camera just arrived from Pentax, and I’ve been asked to shoot some images for an exhibition next year. Thought I’d start with some shots in the studio, so invited over makeup artist Summer Johnson along with Brylee, Sarah, Tomoko and Yuki to see what we could create. Camera: Pentax K3 Lens: Pentax smc DA* 55mm 1:1.4 SDM Lighting – White background. Octabox as main light, medium size softbox low as fill both powered by Profoto Pro-7a. Two profoto compacts aimed at backgound . Strobes triggered with PocketWizards. If you’d like to see a full resolution file of this image then I’ve put one up on Flickr. As you can see, you don’t have to have a full frame sensor to produce images with great detail and natural gradations in tone.
