Hello

I bought my K-30 in May. A month later, I got the DA18-135mm F3.5-5.6 WR lens (see photo sample). A few weeks ago, I add the DA 70mm F2.4 lens to my collection after a Black Friday sale. I want to expand my knowledge in photography. As of now, I'm reading Digital Photography for Dummies. Does anyone have any tips?

You can go go to creativelive.com and sign up for free. They offer free photography classes that you can watch live as they happen. Youtube also has a bunch of photography videos that you can watch. There may be some older CreativeLive videos on Youtube that you can watch. One of the best CreativeLive videos that you might be able to find on Youtubes is called Fundamentals Of Digital Photography by John Greengo. It is a very informative video in my opinion.

Welcome from Iowa! The only things I have to add are; practice a lot and have fun with it!! If you don't enjoy it there is no point to it! Unless of course you are a celebrity photographer rolling in merry barrels of cash!!

Welcome to the forum, as for advice well... you could start by reading every thread and equipment review written here, that should keep you busy for a while.
