Hello From Salt Lake City, Utah

Hello everyone! I've been lurking for a year or two now, and figured I'd join up. I'm planning on doing a cactus v6/RF60 vs yongnuo yn560tx/560IV comparison video sometime in the next few weeks. So... hopefully I'll be contributing some original content to this site.

I went with Pentax because I inherited my great grandfather's spotmatics & m42 lenses. Starting with an *ist DL and a FA 50mm, I supplemented my collection with ebay purchases of even more screwmount lenses. I bought and sold the 40mm and 70mm pancakes, got the Rokinon 85mm, and fell in love with shooting live music. Eventually I upgraded to the K-30. Most of my other acquisitions have been recent. I've shot astro, motorsports, wildlife, landscape, music, and snowsports, among other things. I'm trying to shoot everything and anything this year, and started out with shooting photos at a nightclub this past Saturday night.

Anyway, that is a bit about me and my photography history. I'm intermittently on social media under this same moniker if you want to check out my photography.

Anyone know any Pentax-shooting wedding photographers in Salt Lake City, by chance? I'm always looking for a new niche to explore.

-Sam

Welcome!

Eight or ten years ago there was a lady named Debbie at Inkley's who shot weddings with a Pentax *ist DS. Last I knew she was working at the 2100 South Inkleys but I don't know if she's come back to Pentax after going Nikon, or if she's shooting weddings at all any more. Camera sales are definitely her day job, though, so be ready to talk—she's very good at it
