Default A Day At The Museum With the K-5

Some first shots with the K-5 at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Almost all my time was spent at the new contemporary arts wing. Some of the exposures may seem strange but I was exploring the cameras abilities more than anything else.

No tripods, monopods or flash was allowed. Camera back packs were also banned so I checked mine and proceeded with two lenses, my Sigma 10-20 and Tamron 18-250.


This large glass tree stands 2 1/2 stories tall.






Tamron 18-250 21mm I


Tamron 18-250 50mm ISO 12800 1/500" f5.6 noise reduction in Noiseware











I hope you enjoyed this quick trip to the Boston MFA and if you ever get to visit here, this is a great museum to stop at.

Lou

Very nice compositions Lou...and good IQ on all of them. I love that self-portrait in the last one!

Beautiful pics. On Thursday with another shutterbug , I went to a Western Canadian Museum focusing on aviation...bush planes, etc. Lighting isn't great...it's in a hangar...I just used my K-5 and Pentax 12-24...which is not particularly fast at F 4, but at 800 to 1600 ISO...no need for a flash and the pics were fine.

Did I mention I love this camera ? I still have my K10D and KM....and plan to keep on using them... at a lot of places I take two or more bodies.

Lou, the glass photos are unbelievable! I like 3-7, but I think my favorite of the group has to be #6...no, #5....no #6......#5....LOL.
Terrific work and I'm glad to see I'm not the only one enjoying my K-5

Wow! I think I like #4 and 6. I may need to make another trip into Boston to see that glass exhibit. Hmmm, wonder if I could talk Walt into going there before my 1 p.m. appointment Wednesday.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. Patty, if you do go to MFA street parking is very limited and paid parking is outrageous. I suggest parking somewhere on the Orange line and take the "T" in.
