Hello Everybody!!

Hello everyone! My name is Matthew, I am from Arizona, and I am not completely new to photography but I finally purchased my first "non auto" DSLR camera Pentax K-5.
I have always been interested in photography and always tried shooting in manual on my automatic camera with manual shooting mode. I purchased the camera with the 18-55mm lens kit. Also because of my interest in Manual photography (and limited budget) I purchased the SMC Pentax-M 50mm f:1.7 Asahi. I can't wait to get started (camera comes in Friday) I have a lot more I need to learn, and I finally get to put my current (limited) knowledge to practice! I am glad you guys are here, this site has already helped me a bunch in making my purchase and I will definitely be doing a lot more reading and learning here!
