Hello! From Adelaide, Australia


I've been reading these forums for a long time now, and have finally decided to take the plunge and register.
My photography hobby started about 2 years ago when I bought a Yashica Electro 35 rangefinder I saw in a local shop window (really a great camera). From there I never looked back.

Thinking I wanted something a bit more hands-on I bought a fully manual Cosina CT1 super which has really helped me to learn the basics of getting a good exposure. This camera takes K-mount lenses which is really what got me onto the Pentax brand. After I bought a SMC-A 50/1.4 lens on holiday in Japan I was completely sold.

I have just recently bought a SuperProgram camera (and a ME II winder and AF280T flash) which along with my A lens, really makes my ideal photography kit. I'm contemplating buying the new K-01, but to be honest I am really enjoying shooting film. I dont really see what a digital camera would add to my hobby at the moment (besides massive savings on film/processing costs).

In between all of this camera buying I have found some time to take some photos and have uploaded some of my favourites to my flickr account here. Please take a look if you have a chance.

I look forward to taking part in the forums here!
