Hi! My name is...


I am a 38 year old first year photography student with aspirations of becoming involved in Journalism. I recently purchased a Pentax K-5 after reading multiple great reviews about it. I proceeded to buy about 6 old K-mount lenses of different sizes and shapes. Right now I am primarily shooting with a 35mm prime lens, the Pentax DA 1:2.4 35 MM AL. I am interested in learning all aspects of photography, and right now I am shooting a lot of street photography for my assignments in class. Typical me, I move to the mountains right as I'm discovering an affinity for shooting in an urban location.

I have not yet posted on this forum, but I used the lens reviews extensively while researching inexpensive options to find good manual lenses. I like old technology anyway, so it has been a cool experience for me. I ran into a few problems with different lenses. I have one lens that is supposed to be a k-mount lens, an old Sigma 75-210 zoom lens, I think I bought it for like $9.99 though, so it's really no big deal. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. So far I am loving the camera. Looking forward to learning more about photography and the cool vibe I am getting from the world of Pentax users.

On a side note: Could anyone give me any quick tips on how to embed photos from flickr in my posts here? I am having issues with that right now. Thanks in advance!
