Enthusiast Again

I was a "film" enthusiast many years ago and it seems the photography bug has bitten me again. I spent many days with various 35mm cameras in hand, but Pentax was always my favored brand. Now that I am back in the hobby, it was inevitable that I would select a K-5.

I have had numerous digital p&s cameras, but nothing to the stature of my current Pentax. Even though I used to enjoy processing my own film pictures, with digital I can shoot continuously and process on my laptop which I find even more enjoyable.

I used to be a licensed "master" road cyclist (bicycle), but due to some rather nasty accidents I am out of the game now. Even so, I would like to start photographing various cycling events. I have a motorcycle and my intent is to position myself at various points along the routes and snap shots as the peleton of cyclists fly by. With that in mind I will be trying to increase my knowledge of all phases of photography plus adding lenses and hardware that will help me capture the intensity of the sport.

Best Regards

Welcome to Pentax Forums! I joined on November 4th and by the next day I had spent over five hours on it. I think you'll enjoy it.
