New Pentax Dude

I'm both a "New Pentax" dude AND a new "Pentax Dude". My first-ever Pentax, a K-7 (w/ 18-55), arrived today, and needless to say, I'm quite excited!! I also got a DA15 Limited. (I can't wait to see if it controls my mind!)

This is also my first dSLR, although I have toyed with 35mm SLRs in the past (years and years ago).

I've been lurking on this forum for a few months now, asking a question here and there, but now I get to REALLY participate!

Now, I just need to figure out what I want to take pictures of first!

A bit of background info - I'm in Rochester, NY (for now), I see myself mostly taking urban (portraits and "scenes"), travel (portraits, scenes, landscape) and "art" (for lack of a better term) type of photos. I'd like to try my hand at fashion-style photography as well, if I can ever find willing models.

Congratulations and welcome to the forums!

You now have a very advanced camera on your hands, and I hope you find as much pleasure in learning all about it as I have with my own units over the years.

Look forward to seeing you're posts and more importantly, your images in the forums.
