Big Hello from new Pentax owner in "The Sticks", Ontario, Canada

Hello Folks!
Just a brief hello and introduction! I am an on-line seller of handmade artisan style jewellery who has recently become a photography enthusiast by virtue of necessity (and interest too ). I have recently purchased a Pentax K-r, a good solid mid-range DSLR with a couple of, hopefully, appropriate lenses. I intend to use my camera for mainly jewellery photographs for internet publication, and also for general enjoyment and use . I live on a horse/sheep farm and have 4 dogs who, I am certain, will most definitely fall victim to my camera lens. I previously owned a base level Canon DSLR and jumped ship after espying some great photographs taken by a similar Pentax camera. I am a beginner photographer at best and have fumbled my way through the first 4 months of "running" my on-line shop with very limited skills. I am gradually improving through trial and error and could surely use some advice from time to time; hence, my visit here. I am very interested in Macro photography.. That's my supposedly brief story so thanks for sticking with it and reading
Have a great day!

Good having you here.
Enjoy the forum and your K-r.
Look forward to seeing the scenes from your part of the sticks (we call it 'the bush' down under )

Welcome to the forum. IIRC there was a thread here not too long ago discussing jewelry photography. If you use the search function you might find it. Have fun with your photography!

If you are in commuting distance of Toronto you might consider joining the GTA group: Toronto Pentaxians -

There isn't a whole lot of activity, but there are generally 2 or so Toronto meets a year (whenever somebody feels like organizing one). They can be a good place to try out equipment owned by other members that you wouldn't necessarily find at retail stores.
