My name is Shirley and I have owned a Pentax K-100D for about 6 years and haven't really learned all its settings and features. I was using the automatic settings for years. Now I'm forced to use the manual settings and etc. I am presently enrolled in a Night and Low Light Photography class and it is really interesting and challenging. I'm from the era of film and processing, so I have much to learn. Looking forward to interacting with other members and I'm sure will have a million questions.

Welcome to the forum, don't feel forced, its just a next step in your discovery of the world photography, it should still be fun.

Most folk still use some level of automation in the everyday use of their camera, whether it's using P (Hyper Program), Sv (Sensitivity Priority), Tv (Shutter Priority), Av (Aperture Priority) or any other of the modes Pentax offer on their cameras.

Good luck with the classes, be sure to post some of the images as a result of your learning.

You're going to have some fun learning the capabilities of your camera - once you're out of automatic mode, you're becoming the photographer.
