Hi all!

Hello there,

Was out shooting at the Japanese festival today when I encountered another Pentax user, he suggested I check out these forums and here I am!.

A little background about myself.

I'm an unpublished novelist half way through writing my first book . I was gifted a Pentax k-5 for christmas by a family member which kick started my interest in photography and also the condition many of you here refer to as the 'LBA'. Last week I sold the 18-135mm lens that came with my k-5 and purchased a 16-50, today was the first serious attempt I had at photography. I am low skilled but I am a keen learner of the science and art of photography.

it's an awesome journey and be prepared to open your wallet up..once you do certain types of pictures you realize you want to do others and before you know it.................. the k5 is one of the best cameras you could have gotten as a gift so kudos on whoever decided that is what you needed...i have learned alot from this sight and look at it every day..good luck!!! amy

Yes, I can see that photography is an expensive habit, I'm already looking at other lenses even though I just got my hands on a new one! It takes all my strength not to buy a macro lens, no matter how fun it may seem, I must learn to use the one I already have first before I will get another.
