Hello everyone!

My name is Andy, and I reside in Los Angeles, CA. I have a passion for music, film and art. I'm currently in school fulfilling my bachelors in business, and I plan on pursuing a career in music and/or film full time after I graduate. Right now I'm working for a film production company as a production assistant.

I just recently started getting into photography, so I am as amateur as you can get! The reason why I started is because I was digging around my garage and found my dad's old camera bag! I believe he used to work for a daily newspaper back in the early 90's. He had left me a Pentax SF-1 camera with a SMC Pentax-F zoom 35-70mm lens. I know its not anything fancy, but since its one of the only things he has left behind, it means a lot to me. I thought it would be a great hobby to pick up and another fun way to express my creativity.

I hope through these forums I can learn how to utilize my camera to its full potential and be able to share some awesome pictures with all of you!

Welcome to the forums! Fancy gear not needed; the SF-1 and F zoom are more than good enough to capture great images. And if you decide to go digital the F zoom will be just as useful on a DSLR. Enjoy.
