Greetings from Finland

I'm writing from the North although it certainly has been warm here recently with temperatures up to 22 C outside. I just bought my Pentax K100D Super last week and am enjoying it thoroughly. I have been teaching Photoshop, to some extent, for years but this year with the encouragement of a Photographer friend I delved much deeper and my longing for a DSLR grew quickly! I was using my Canon IXUS 70 to the max, literally and finally (with my wife's blessing) I got my Pentax DSLR. I know a lot about the technical side of photoediting but my skills as a photographer are in the early stages, to be blunt. Anyway, I'm looking forward to learning from the experiences of others here and hopefully some day I can help someone too. Thanks for having me.

Michael Hopkins, Finland
BTW, I'm actually Canadian but my wife is Finnish. Soon I'll be writing from Canada as we are moving back in June for a year.
