New Pentax k-r user in Northern California

I'm expecting to receive my new Pentax k-r this week...Primarily to take pictures of our kids in our dimly lit house (Northern California fog). Any tips would be appreciated. I ordered the two lens kit with the 18-55 and 55-300 lenses.

Best regards,

Welcome! I'm in NorCal also, San Jose/Campbell here. The Kr is great for low light shooting. A quick tip, do not hesitate to go above and beyond ISO 3200. The 18-55 lens with ISO 3200 will be perfect for low light photography. For the future you can get some faster lenses and can lower the ISO but the Kr is known for high ISO performance.
