Hello from N California

I was one of those who was thrilled when Pentax finally decided to jump into the dSLR world, having had 35mm film cameras going back to the late '70s (and still have them!). (My "plan B" was moving over to Canon.) My K10D is my main workhorse (although have intentions of moving it to a back-up position when a K-5 is acquired)...still exercise older K1000 and MX cameras.

My photography involvement goes back to the 1970s, in 35mm Pentax and 6x6 Bronica film formats, with experience ranging from part-time professional, to teaching, including being published.

Currently, I have been the photography instructor at Tracy, California's Grand Theatre Center for the Arts since 2009, and am their primary photographer for in-house imagery and publications.

Happy to be here on the Forum!

Best Wishes, from N California...

Hi Richard,
Welcome aboard! Thanks for your warm welcome and encouragement. I am finding it a little over whelming as far as the information and knowledge available. I need to start small and work from there. This forum has been helpful in steering me in the right direction and away from the "glitter." I hope you find the forum as helpful as I have.
