Greetings from Oklahoma

Howdy to the wide world of Pentax users:

This is my first post. During the past few years I lurked around this forum off and on, then finally joined around the first of this year. I've been a professional writer/photographer for more than 34 years. In journalism school I handled Nikons, Minoltas, & Canon bodies before deciding to buy my first Pentax film SLR. That old SP-1000 just fit my hands --- and especially my glasses --- better than the other brands. My photography professor endorsed my selection, and I've owned Pentax equipment ever since, with few regrets.

Most of my film work occurred in my newspaper days, doing mostly agricultural photography. I went into technical writing and marketing communications as the digital revolution began, and have worked with company-owned hybrid Nikons, and Canon and Sony DSLRs. For heavy duty shooting and ease of use, I bring my personal Pentax DSLR gear to work.

I look forward to exchanging ideas with other Pentax owners of all stripes. I do some location portrait shoots on the side as well as a wedding now and then. I am especially interested in learning how to better use my Pentax strobe, so I was glad to hear about the new flash forum
