I'm new!

My older brother just bought me a Pentax K1000 for fun.
I don't know much about it, other than the basics.
I'm interested in learning some tips and tricks.
I am a first time film user, and this is the first camera I have owned.
So, if I suck, I'm sorry I just enjoy taking pictures and would like to know how to get better.
Thank you!

Here are some of the pictures I took on my very first roll of film!
Please give me your thoughts!

The K1000 is a nice body to start with; I used one as student and then shot with with my own for about 12 years before picking up a second body.

Welcome to the forum.
Firstly: You don't suck!
Secondly: you've done well to pursue your learning with a basic film SLR - keep at it.
Enjoy your time with us.
