Hello from Sunny England

Hi everyone,

My name's Ashley and I'm a photographer from the UK. I've been a fan of Pentax since my dad gave me his ME Super, 50/1.7, 28/2.8 and 70-150/4 when I started college (27 yrs ago)! I still use the camera today and it's never missed a beat.

Although I don't shoot Pentax for 'Work' work I do shoot film for all my personal work and have just today taken delivery of a Pentax 67. I set up a darkroom in my studio last year and printing has led me to the bigger neg the 67 offers.

Felt it only right to join the community now I feel like a bonafide (film) Pentaxian!!

So hi guys and girls and thank you for having me here!

Ash

Welcome!

It sounds like your dad got you started off right!

There are a lot of film shooters on the forum. I don't happen to be one, but I shoot almost entirely with manual lenses like the ones you listed.

Looking forward to seeing some of your photos!

The frustration of that... like a new toy at Christmas and with no batteries to fit.

Haha....it's exactly like that! My wife phoned me to say two boxes had arrived from Japan so I shot home to find those two boxes were the body and viewfinder....I was expecting the body and the lens!

Oh well, they say patience is a virtue.
