Hi from Sweden

Hi all - I am a new member located outside Stockholm, Sweden, and have been a faithful Pentax amateur photographer ever since my first analogue Pentax MX (that died when it fell off my bike in 1990 - RIP)

I am now a happy owner of Pentax K-3 and K-5 and am interested in all kind of photographic genres.

I typically prefer natural light, but would really like to master flash and studio lighting. Anyone that could recommend good online sources to get going?

Welcome from Iowa! Looks like you got some serious Pentax firepower!! Lucky!! Here is where I go to get inspired to do off camera flash:Strobist: Welcome to Strobist. This will give you all the info you need to build a portable strobe setup for as little or as much as you would like to spend! plus he has tutorials and scenarios. Really cool stuff!!
