hi folks

hi All, I'mentalMickey, don't let the name scare you it's just the fact that I would climb a mountain just to take the picture of rare flower haha
just arrived on the site, looks a cool place. got myself a Pentax K5 few months back and I'm totally amazed by it.
photography is a new born hobby which I've been dreaming of for a few years but lack of finance due to family reasons meant I had to bite my time as we say here in the UK.
I mostly take shots of gigs colours and B/W where the conditions can be the harchest with red lights and fast moving bands memebers running round a stage.

the K5 does it for me, it's still as a kit with lens, just about to purchase a sigma lense for it (keep it affordable to start with) and I'll take it from there....

gotta go guys, my dog is noisily awaiting for his walky time.

I'll post some shots on here later

cheers guys

Welcome to the forum, gigs are not easy, but that way, not everyone's doing it.

cheers kerrodown,

just uploaded some pics, just for a feel as other ppl on here might do gigs too.

it's not just gigs I'm interrested in but mostly the photojournalism type of pictures where life has been caught totally unexpectidelly, that really really gets my adrenaline rushin'.
I remember when i was a kid and looking at pics in the broadsheets back then where, even tho it was mostly politician the pics were so full of life! that is what I'm looking for and so far the K5 does not cease to amaze me

there's the link to my album MentalMickey's Albums - PentaxForums.com

please leave comments, constructive criticism ca be a very good way to learn

cheers
