Hey Folks

I've been lurking a long time and finally decided to make it official I probably won't be a prolific poster but I do find the information here very valuable.

My first experience with Pentax was long ago in high school when a biology teacher pretty much forced us to look at the wold through the lens of the camera. I asked for a K1000 as a gift from my parents so I wouldn't have to borrow one of the school cameras and they granted that wish. What I learned about photography at that point and it still lingers today is that that while the details do matter, lighting, subject, framing, etc., the real deal is seeing the world for what it is. There is both beauty and ugliness out there. It's how it's perceived and the reaction to it is what matters. I look forward to learning from all of you.

Welcome to the forum, photography is still much the same then as it is now, just the method of captures changed.
