Hi from Italy!

Hi to all!!!
I'm an italian pentaxian! I have always followed this forum, since I've owned a Pentax camera (more than 2 years ago) because it's a very useful and well-done website, containing an impressive quantity of information about the Pentax world.
This site was crucial for the choice of my first DSLR, I have already read your beautiful "k-r review" and all the improvements referring to the k-x. I also like to watch the user reviews of lenses and to see the beautiful photos posted there. Now I've decided to join this community because my english is getting better (very slowly ) and maybe I can try to communicate with you all. If I make some mistakes (highly probable) please feel free to fix it, so I can improve my english and communicate more easily with you all, learning not only about photography but also about english (in a free and enjoing way ).
Usually I like to obtain a better result with less money. This is the reason why I chose Pentax.
I like macro-photography (I'll post some photos later or in these days).
Now I'm trying to experiment with still-life but i found it's really difficult to manage different light-sources avoiding shadows or bad light reflections and to obtain a not-disturbing background.
I like also portrait photography, but I don't have a specific AF lens and manual focus is not so easy in the pentamirror (but also in the pentaprism of other Canon-Nikon.. cameras I've tried). It's much better with the Live View zoom (the live view of the k-r is fantastic! really detailed!). But also to find a model for free it's not so easy and my girlfriend doesn't like to pose for me too much
In addition, I'm very busy in this period and I have short time for taking photos so you'll see my "old" photos first
I will see you around there!
