Newbie from Virginia

Hello, I've been shooting with a K mount since 1999. I started on a Ritz camera brand Dakota, fully manual camera. Then finally made the move to digital in 2011 to a K-r.

I like older lenses and have a collection of some Vivitar series 1 zooms, and a handful of primes of various brands.

I still shoot fully manually with a katzeye focusing screen for manual focus.

Right now, photography is just a hobby but my goal is to start trying to get a bit more serious. Initial plans are to get a portfolio together and start submitting to micro-stock sites.

From there, who knows! I'd love to have a portrait studio, but not sure if that us feasable with all the fotographers in my area driving prices down. Plus, not sure if I could handle disgruntled customers. I'm thinking microstock could help feed my lens habit and be a fun way to get some pocket money.

Thats about it, I guess. Longtime lurker on the forums, thought it was about time to join up.
