Newbie From Manila Philippines

Hi Guys,


Glad to join you here.

Photography has been a very rewarding hobby for me and I think Pentax is one of the best cameras out there. I use my for available light photography and you guys won't believe it but I use it for Lomography, I'm talking about my Pentax ME.


Cheers!!

HI Marlou, welcome to the Pentax Forum, you will meet lots of nice people in this forum who are willing to share. As I understand , there is a growing number of Pentax shooters( about 60 ) there that go out occasionally for photo shoot.

Cheers,

Rene

Rene,


Thank you for your warm welcome

I must say I enjoy Photography so much and I regret not going back into photography all these years.

I started out when I was in grade school.

I bought a Kodak C-126 Instamatic camera loaded with 24 shots of B&W film for our field trip at the Manila Zoo.

I have fond memories of that camera.

With that camera I got a picture with my sister and my dog who I miss so much.

After that it was only when I was already in High School I got a hold of a Hanimex C-110 pocket camera.

A classmate of mine introduced me to 35mm SLR photography.

But since I can't afford one it just remained something I set aside.

I was already working for an IBM subsidiary company in my province when I was able to borrow for a year a Konica Manual 35 mm SLR.

I had fun with that camera though I did not have much of a clue about the dynamics of F stops and shutter speeds.

I just followed the red dots on the camera and was able to take satisfactory pictures.

After that, feb 2007 I bought a digital point and shoot camera.

But there's something about photography which allured me to SLRs.

It's just this year 2007 July that I was able to acquire a Sigma SA5 complete with 5 lenses brand new from a local store here in Manila.

Then I bought a Nikon N65 and just last month I was able to buy a new old stock Pentax ME gathering dust in a store room from a dealer here in Manila.

I bought a Pentax because I know its a good camera and I'm now using it for Lomography with a few attachments to bring out the desireable results for Lomography.

I also use it for available light photography because I have a 50 mm f1.4 SMC lens.

I also intend to use it for B&W photography to come up with Platinum print outs.

Its a fun adventure for me so far.

The reason why I went back to photography is because it came to the point that I was so good in Photoshop that there was something lacking.

I had to become the author of the photos I render to become an artist.


Best regards to all.


Marl

JC,


Thanks!

I plan to migrate to Canada someday.

I think would have lots of fun there indulging in photography.

Cool

And I bet you brought your Pentax with you?

What model do you have?

Are you also into Lomography?
