Hey from the Cotswolds UK!

I'm Charis Vega, I have a degree in fine art photography and a PGCE (teaching qualification) in art and photography though at present i don't teach. I currently run a photolab which is...challenging.
I've decided to do photography again for myself and chose Pentax as the lovely area reps showed me all their amazing models and frankly i preferred them to all the other makes. I have a K-R and an ME Super. I also have a pentax-a 5omm lens

Currently I'm trying to figure out how to get my Coutenay lights to work with my camera ( i inherited them so not a clue how they work) and thinking of investing in 2nd flash and some kind of pocket wizard set set up but frankly its too much information to take in (if anyone wants to help me out please do)
My photography is usually abandoned houses and portraits with a lot of post processing.
Attached is one of my photos I've taken of a local model the other photo is moi behind the scenes of a photoshoot i did where i was punked up.

PT-04 radio flash triggers have worked for me and are quite cheap ($25 for 1+2 set including postage, Far-East Ebay seller). If I was looking for a new set, I might get a set of the new, better quality, reasonably priced Cactus triggers.
