Hello from Manchester UK

Hi everyone,

I've been a member here for a while but not actually posted, so I thought it was about time.

I'm an amateur photographer and bought my first (and current camera) just over 1 year ago. That camera was the Pentax K5II and I still love it. Initially when looking for a camera I thought I would choose Nikon on Canon, however I took a glance at what I could get for my budget from other brands and I realised just how much Pentax had to offer.

Over the past year I have learnt so much and photography has really become an obsession. I have had great feedback from friends and family and I'm actually photographing a couple of weddings for friends this year. I know this is a big step and not something to be taken lightly, but I think I can handle it and I'm eager to take on the challenge.

I'm looking forward to posting more on here and picking your expert brains!

Thanks for having me!
