This is my first step into the larger world of photography. I'm a complete rookie. The K100D is my first DSLR. I've been happily married for 7 years. We have two kids, a 5 year old boy and 9 month old girl. I enjoy taking pictures of my kids and the outdoors. My other hobbies include shooting and fishing.

I've been playing with the new toy for a couple of weeks. Let me say that I am not disappointed in the least with my choice of cameras. It's a major improvement over the old Canon (not bashing Canon) A620. Here are some of my first images. Not bad for a DSLR / photography rookie. I know I still have a WHOLE heap to learn.

Don't have to be nice. I can take it.

welcome aboard, and congrats on the new camera. I know you'll like the camera and the results the more you use it. As for your first shots they look fine to me. colors and lighting is good and the focus is spot on. The only thing I will ever tell any new photographer is practice, practice, practice, and enjoy what you do. Have fun with the new camera and I know you have some great subjects to start with right at home. When posting here it is always best to put a space between each shot posted so the pictures don't overlap each other.
Again congrats on the new camera and you have a beautiful family.

Good Shooting.
Cheers: David
