Hello from Oklahoma

Hey everybody! I'm new to the forum from Oklahoma (originally IL). I discovered this place after I bought a K-x three years ago for my then girlfriend, now wife. She was quickly intimidated by it, and it has over time become mine.

I recently began getting more interested in photography when I bothered to take the time and figure out how to use the k-x properly. Before that I only knew enough to have limited success at astrophotography, but the massive amount of light pollution near OKC has pushed me to explore other areas.

I just purchased an SMC Takumar 80-210 4.5 and a Super Takumar 55 1.8 largely based on reviews here and have been very happy with the resulting shots from those lenses, but I'm still learning.

I'm glad to have such a great source of knowledge here! See you around!

Welcome to this club. Mostly we try to advise, point to resources, and help with problems. But mostly we love photography, and it shows.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. Smf, I've added a link to my Flickr gallery to my signature. It's a bit sparse at the moment, since I just started that account as well.
