Hello To All

Greetings from beautiful New England. I have a white Pentax K-X purchased from BH last month.
This is my first digital slr and I am trying to learn the manual side of this "storm trooper" before
going out and snapping some pics. I have taken some shots in auto but I prefer to learn how to
shoot without it first. I am reading Understanding Exposure and am enjoying it. Hope I can retain
what I learn. Well that's it from here,enjoy and stay well.

Welcome aboard. Manual or auto does not matter as much as understanding what your light meter is telling you and when to apply some EV compensation. So, that book will be a good start..
