Hello from Lancaster PA

I have been doing photography for quiet a few years, about 25 years. So I know just enough to be dangerous. Nothing professional, but I have some aspirations to sell some of my stuff.

When I really got into photography, I started off with a Pentax ME Super film camera. I built up my lenses - nothing earth shattering - but they got the job done. These include the standard 50mm Pentax, a Vivitar 28 mm wide angle, another Vivitar 50-210 mm telephoto and a Tomika 35-135 mm telephoto.

Because of the lenses I do have, I am looking for a Pentax digital. I think I am going to get a Pentax K-r 12.4 MP. From my research, I think the lenses I have will work with this - have read the material on using manual lenses and it appears I can get them to work. If anyone sees any issues, I'd appreciate the feedback.

My current ME Super gave up the ghost a number of years ago, so I started to get into digital. I had a meager budget, so I started with a Kodak point and shoot 1 MP. I have since moved onto a Kodak DX7440 5 MP and also own a FujiFilm WP Z33 10MP. Once again, nothing earth shattering, but I have some nice shots - sharing some here.

I also have some of the Adobe Photoshop software: Elements, CS5 and Lightroom. Have just started to take some of the Learn by Video training, and I'm really enjoying the effects you can do with these tools - reverse B&W, cutout filtering and many more.
