There's so much I don't know!!

Hello Pentax Forum!
I always thought I knew quite a bit about photography...then, I got the k-x for Christmas. I now see that I know absolutely nothing about SLR photography! Lol! Lenses, filters, f-stops...oh my goodness!

Once I realized how little I knew...the first thing I did was find a forum for help. So, here I am! I'm sure I'll have a bunch of questions and I'm glad I've somewhere to go to ask them.

Looking forward to all your help and hoping that some day soon I'll actually be able to help others!

Welcome to the forum Sara and remember, there's no such thing as a stupid question except the one you don't ask! We are all learners here but just in different degrees and we all learn together.

Hi Sara and welcome! All of us here started out as complete newbies so feel free to ask away! That is what this place is for.
NaCl(well and to show our photos, and to discuss different gear, but primarily to learn)H2O

Welcome Sarah, as pointed out we're all learning still, I've been shooting with SLR's since 1973 and I still feel like I have lots to learn (Digital was really like starting from scratch in a lot of ways, a learning curve I still struggle with)
