Hello—I'm new!!

Hello all,

New to this site and forum, and new to the Pentax line all together I started off using Canon and then ducked out of the photography scene all together after a while. When it was time to get back into it I did a lot of research and found that I liked most of what I was hearing about Pentax. I recently purchased an entry level Pentax k500. Loving it so far!!

On a personal note, I am an amateur photographer who, at one time anyway, was specializing in boudoir and maternity, with my wife as an assistant. Got out of that game but still very much admire and enjoy those two genres of photography. My beautiful and brave wife was my first nude/maternity subject ever, and I got some warm and encouraging responses from my intermediate photo class. We both pretty much just shoot a lot of nature photos now.

Anyway, that's my photography background and interests in a nutshell


J.G.

The K-500 and K-50 are very similar cameras, but for nature photography I might have considered the K-50 over the K-500 for it's weather sealing.
