Scarlet Lady by Kjherstin Scarlet Lady by Kjherstin


:camera: SCARLET LADY

Photography: Christina Pereira
Location: Tilburg
Camera: Pentax K10D
Objective: Tamron SP AF90mm F/2.8 Di 1:1 Macro
Shutter Speed:: 1/125s
F Number:: F/4
Focal Length:: 135 mm
ISO Speed:: 100
Dedicated Flash:: Metz 58 AF-1


Comment: No tripod was used, so the dedicated flash was a heavy load to focus with. The Camera weighs about 790g, the macro objective weighs 405g and the additional external flash adds another 355g... :|
I ended up with pain along my thumbs and pinkies but the outcome speaks for itself. It is overwhelmingly well focused and the colours speak for themselves.


Hey I just noticed my reflection on the ladybug...peek-a-boo it's Kj :D

I've never seen one with more than seven spots - what manner of a beast is that?
