Hiya from SoCal! New to the Forums

My name is Jonathan. At the moment shooting with a little point and shoot. I'm getting ready to upgrade to my very first owned dslr. (Very exciting for me!) I'm pretty sure it's going to be a Pentax K3. I like to shoot anything that I can see with my eyeballs. I really enjoy landscapes and wildlife at the moment and looking to move into other areas. I've been playing with photography on and off since taking a class in high school and recently really started to get serious about it. I also love hiking, going to the zoo and Huntington Library. There's also many other activities I enjoy. Looking to learn all I can from the information and knowledge that flows through these forums and maybe make a friend or two.
Thanks for taking the time to read!

Welcom to the club, Jonathan! I know you're gonna have a great time with the K-3. I know I'm having fun with mine! Like SpecialK mentioned, you might want to check out the California Users group that he linked to. We meet up every once in a while, so if you ever want to learn more about your camera, you should check us out. But just don't ask us to try out our gear, for your wallet's sake. =)
