New and Ignorant

I'm a new member today. Bought a K-50 during the holidays. Sitting on 21mm, 35mm macro, 55mm, and 70mm primes that I've just begun to play with. Have no photographic training or knowledge whatsoever so - right now - learning through pain and disappointment. Can hardly wait to get outside with my camera . . . as soon as it warms up here in central Florida

That's an awesome set of lenses you have there! I'm sure you'll figure out their strengths in no time at all!

Hello and welcome to the Forums. I am sure you will figure it out quickly. I'll be in your neck of the woods in a couple of weeks. I'm looking forward to the cool Florida weather

One recommendation I always make is to read "understanding exposure" by Bryan Peterson. There are other similar books, but that's the one I like. Really will open up your mind to how to control exposure.

Well, a lot of reading and a little bit of saved up money over a long period of time (hard to come by when you work in a public library), also a clinically significant LBA problem. . . . And I just received, this evening, a 43mm lens from a Forums member. Already, had it out in the backyard, this evening, testing out it's low light performance.

I see we have an older edition of that book at the library where I work. I'll get the newer one soon to shorten my learning curve a little. Thanks for that recommendation!
