Aloha from Hawaii!!

Aloha Everyone!!

My name is Arvin and I am from O'ahu, Hawaii and I am fairly new to DSLR cameras and photography.

Previous cameras I have used/owned are a Sony point and shoot and a Nikon cybershot. I now own a white K-30 with the standard kit lens and just recently bought the 18mm-135mm lens. The K-30 is my very first DSLR and I gotta say I love this camera. I did lots of research on what camera I should buy as a entry level DSLR and decided on the K-30 (although my sister tried to convince me to get Canon instead ). I don't plan to be a professional, but I want learn the different things such as aperture, shutter speed and ISO to be able to take good photos because I travel places with my family a lot.
