Newbie from Australia!

Hello fellow Pentaxians!

My name is Marisa Gangemi and I am a photographer from Melbourne Australia. I got my first Pentax for my 18th Birthday back in 2007 a K100D which I am still currently using with the following Sigma lenses: 18-50mm F3.5-5.6 DC, 28-80mm F3.5-5.6 Macro, 70-300mm F4-5.6 DG Macro and 150 -500mm F5-6.3 APO DG OS. I am passionate about automotive photography and started my own small business Marisa Gangemi Photography

I have joined the forum because I want to learn more about Pentax as I am looking to upgrade and get another camera body, and more lenses soon. I shoot alot of motorsports, so another camera body will be handy because changing lenses trackside is often very difficult with alot of dust and wind all the time. I also like to be ready for what happens on the track. I have no formal training in photography so in genral I want to learn more and get advice on photograpy equipment and techniques! I would also love to get critique on my work too so i can improve and grow to be a better photographer

I look foward to getting to know you all!

Marisa Gangemi
