The Eyes of Pentax

By johnriley1uk  
For quite a while Pentax users had been asking for something like the tiny Auto 110 film camera system but digital. Pentax tested the waters with the compact I-10 and this is what Clare is modelling here. I think I did this for a competition on making an advertising shot. If course, Pentax then followed up with the terrific Q system of ultra-small CSCs and lenses, thus repeating what they did for film in days of yore. This version of my picture I have made selenium toned as the colour version, with a vivid blue background, I felt was a bit too intense.

Pentax would be proud for your shot Smile

Once Kodak announced it stopped the production of the 110 film and offered to recycle Ektra cameras as part exchange for Kodak 135 film cameras I bought one for my sibling and that was the end of the really pocketable camera for me. It was the first camera I've owned, a really go anywhere tool. Sadly missed, but hey, now they have still film stock you can make the best out of it Smile

I am not a Pentax Guy, but I am really fascinated with the reflections in the models eyes
and the lenses of the 2 cameras, so well arranged and shot

great job
