Hello I'm so excited!!!!!!

Hi I'm glad to be here. I've been into photography for a long time and have decided it was time to up my skills. So I'm putting a studio in my house and want to do portraits and such.

As my current camera is a 7 year old Olympus E-500, it was time for an upgrade. After spending the past couple of months researching my options I made a decision. This morning I placed an order for my new Pentax k- 5 II! Best Buy lowered the price to $749 and as I'm on a budget the price was now right. Can't wait to get it! Looking forward to meet all the fine people here.

Welcome aboard! make sure to frequent the Lighting techniques/accessories forum here, that's probably the most important thing in portraiture.
