curious and intrigued from Montreal!!

Hello from the townships! my father recently allowed me to explore his Pentax Asahi KX, which by the way came with the -

SMC Pentax 1: 1.4/ 50mm and
Kalimar macro lens 1: 3.5/ 28-85mm

and, a Rokinon Polarizer ( which seems to be attached... cuz im unable to twist it off the rest of the lens!)

im used to working with a digital camera where all the work is almost done for me, and really wanted to get a feel for and understand film /mechanic photography.

I would love some pointers on how to get the most from my lenses especially my macro lens (( which already is a favourite!)).
also, is there a way to lock the lens so that it doesnt loose focus and set exposure?

what type of tripod should i get for this type of camera... would a modern version fit??

thx for the feedback!!

Welcome to the forum and the Pentax Family. If you go to the Pentax Beginners Corner and ask your questions I'm sure you'll get the answers you need. As for the Tripod I think the fitting for the camera (thread) is universal and has been the same from the start.
