Hello from Brazil - a photography lover

So, I've just found this forum and I already like it. Been reading some threads and it seems a pretty nice community. About me, I have this Spotmatic II that belonged to my dad and now I'm taking care of it for him. I spent some money getting it fixed and now it seems to work properly (it was all dirty with mold and the shutter had some issues). It's my first camera and I'm still learning the basics of protography, though I always loved it, but never had the guts to learn stuff properly. So, I hope I find some good information here and get answers to some of my questions.

When I first jumped into photography in the early '80's I wish I had read up on the subject vs just playing around. I took OK stuff but it was mostly travel type pics as I was in the Navy running around. I had about a 10 year break, but when I got back into photography a couple years ago with a used K-x I read books and practiced the techniques. I'm having even more fun now and feel like I'm getting better pictures. Welcome to the PF.

(I just had an older Pentax fixed too... it's amazing how well they work when cleaned up and the parts all work.)
