About

I like to photographise things using the art of photographisation

English by birth, Australian by choice
I like to have fun taking photographs
hope you have fun looking

there are heaps more on my other site Gumnuts World

Equipment I use

Pentax K10D camera
Kodak Retina 1B (1958) great for on aeroplanes, no batteries
Pentax K1000, my first SLR, doens’t get used much any more but still works
Pentax 50mm f1.7 manual K mount lens, still used on the K10D, especially as a macro
Pentax 28mm f2.8 manual K mount lens, used if I need f2.8 at 28mm
Pentax 80-320 f4.5 A lens, works great as a macro
Hanimex 100mm screwmount lens, rescued from a pawn shop
Hanimex 400mm screwmount lens, a freebie so i couldn’t say no, works ok on the K10D
Pentax 10-17 fisheye lens, a brilliant lens and great fun too
Pentax 300mm DA* f4 SDM lens, great resolution, a much used lens
Pentax AF-360fzg flash, I should use it more often
Metz 45 CT-1 flash, with a 20 metre range (can’t use it on the K10D though)
Macro teleplus converter APK, and interesting macro device
2x convertor K mount with the glass removed, used with the 50mm and 80-320mm zoom for macro photography, a great cheap alternative
an old slik tripod that has done well to last this long

and other stuff that I don’t use any more (including a dark room)
