Greetings from Australia

Hi! My name is Giulia and Iím from Sydney, Australia. I have been shooting Pentax since I was a little girl.

My first journey into photography was with Mumís Kodak Instamatic (I think it was) and Dadís Pentax ME (which I still use to this day). Go forward a few years; Mum and Dad bought me a digital point and shoot camera for my 21st birthday and thatís when my real love of photography began.

I bought my first DSLR a year or so later (sadly, not a Pentax) and I wasnít that impressed and it was rather plastic-y.

Go forward a few more years and I am the very proud owner of two Pentax DSLRís (a K7 and a K5iis) and a myriad of lenses. I've done quite a few photography courses and own a lot of books and magazines on the subject. My favourite subjects to take photos of are landscapes, abstract images and macro scenes.

Iím just about to graduate with a diploma in graphic design too, which is pretty exciting.

So thatís a little snapshot about me (see what I did there haha).

Welcome to the Forums, Giulia. Nice "snapshot" you started with. Your design background should mean we will get to see some interesting camera work. Post some images soon.

As soon as I graduate, I'm going to spend some time posting some photos up for sure.
