Another Spicy Chicken Dish!

Hello everyone!

I thought it was about time to join the forum. Normally I tend to not join forums, but this one really grabbed my attention.

How can I pass up a forum with a tonne of other crazed pentaxians? I really enjoy the multinational flavor of the members, the wide range of experiance, and the thoughtfull posts. I have yet to see a flame war!

A little about me and photography...

I started with my dad's Spotmatic. Beautiful camera. Then I moved onto a K1000. Built myself a darkroom, and had a great time experimenting in black and white.

Had to give up the darkroom (moved), and sort of fell out of photography for a while.

Started using a point and shoot, but never really regained my "photo mo-jo".

Then I noticed the prices of DSLR's starting to drop! maybe they now make a K1000 in a DLSR? After researching and trying every entry level DSLR I could find, I picked up a K100D.

After the first release of the shutter, there was that familiar sound! My thumb instictivly went to wind the film, and I knew this was the camera for me! This was a digital version of my K1000! Then I found out I could use the old lenses!

Long story short, here I am regaining my photo mo-jo!

Glad to join a forum where I can learn to be better, and share what I Know. (what do I know... not alot!)

Glad you decided to join.. I have personally learned so much on so many realms that it is amazing in just my short time on this forum...

But I must warn you.... it is almost as bad as an LBA (Lens buying addiction)... If I dont atleast check in everyday I go crazy!!! Heaven forbid I miss more than one day !!!

Enjoy!! looking forward to seeing some of your shots!!
