Free-lensing with 80-200mm Pentax lens (that came with the camera in the photo). I was standing 7ft away – and zoomed to 200mm to take this shot. I plan to purchase a adapter that will allow me to use these 20-30 year old Pentax lenses on my DSLR. Speedlight with mini-softbox sitting on table to the front right of camera.

Composite of 2 photos. First photo: f6.7 – 1/90 – Speedlight with mini-softbox coming from top right to light the wooden box. Second photo: f32 – 30 seconds – No speedlight – to get tree lights looking good.

f2.8 – 1/180 – Spedlight with reflective umbrella half-way closed down to focus light only on subject, and not background. I went back to basics with one-light and starting with setting my ambient light and getting the christmas tree to look good first – then added light.
