Hi All! Cincinnati here!

I am new to Pentax by 3 months now, with the purchase of a K5 & a couple of lenses. I have to say, I'm sold on Pentax. I've been taking pictures in some form using my old Minoltas for the past 20 years. Having had a career that took a lot of my time and moved us all over the country, I didn't find that diving into photography, to the extent I wanted, even remotely an option. That said, I still shot pictures for friends and did pro bono work for special needs families here and there. My heart is still in the "special needs" world; taking pictures of families in need, with health difficulties, who are saying goodbye to loved ones,'s just such an incredible place to be. One, I myself have experienced and know my heart is in. My hope is that I can learn as much as I can moving forward to ensure I am taking the best possible picture for my families. I'm also being asked more to do work for friends here and there, and am thinking it may be an avenue I could actually generate some income on the side. Doing what you love and getting paid for it sounds like a pretty good deal to me. AND again, if I'd be getting paid even remotely, I need to make sure I'm on top of my game! So, all that to say, I am happy to have found this wonderful part of the web. I look forward to any insight and education I can glean here! Thanks!
