Hi everybody!

Hi everyone,

I've been lurking on these forums for quite a while now, so I think it's high time I introduce myself. I'm 31, live in sunny Freiburg (Germany), and I've been interested in photography for a few years, but never got beyond the typical "look at me in front of the right edge of some famous building!" snapshots. So I read up on some photography basics and got myself a Fuji X10.
But when a friend let me use his DSLR a few months back, I immediately fell in love. I decided to go for a Pentax K-30 because I wanted to use affordable manual lenses (which I've read about on these forums!) to finally master the basics.

While my pictures are still a far cry from spectacular (or even particularly interesting), I'm having a blast experimenting since I got a bunch of cheap, old lenses at a local flea market. If anyone could point me to a good sub forum to learn more about composition, I'd appreciate it.

See you around,
