Long-time Pentax User - Short-time PentaxForums Member

I learned photography using a Pentax K-1000 shortly after getting married. I purchased two Pentax SF-1 camera bodies - one for my wife and one for me. (The Nikons I looked at didn't have a viewfinder diopter, but Pentax did.) Unfortunately, my wife didn't get the shutter bug, so I had two cameras! Only in the past 2.5 years did I get into digital once Pentax had a 25 megapixel camera (K-3). I should have known that the camera was going to get an upgrade when it went on sale.... and then the K-3 II was out. I have a gym bag full of negatives - a project and a half for when I'm retired. I shoot with Pentax and Sigma lenses.

Love shooting macro, birds (especially the Great Blue Heron and hummingbirds), night photography, sports, and candid photography. Starting to get into portraiture. Because I learned shooting slides and negatives, I am apparently classified as an "old school photographer." I prefer to get everything right in camera. I don't own PhotoShop nor LightRoom (yet.) I also can capture the right moment without resorting to burst mode.

Yes, I have bought stuff recently at Adorama and B&H - I love the videos they post on YouTube, which have been helpful in getting up to speed with histograms and white balance. I also support Canadian camera stores.

I'm looking forward to being a PentaxForums Member!

My ex-sister-in-law used to live in Milton, over in the Bronte Creek flood plain. Nice house but she couldn't get a permit to even do minor alterations.. Been there many times. Welcome to the forum.

Thanks.

My wife's family have a cottage near Sprucedale on Round Lake - right in your neck of the woods. I'll be trying some more astrophotography up there in the summer. There are a few dark sky areas nearby.
