Hello Friends

I'm new to the Pentax family. Very excited about getting the k70 with the 18-135mm kit lens. I have been browsing KEH for good lens for the camera. I have lighting for portrait photos. I'm looking to do portrait and boudoir photos. Any tips? on lighting settings or otherwise? Any lens suggestions.
I'm from San Antonio and if anyone would like to teach me a few things it would be greatly appreciated.
Also i tried to to update the firmware and it didn't register.

Many thanks
Vincent Michael

Welcome, and while the 18-135 is an awesome lens I'd get a fast f/2.8 zoom for boudoir shots.

Find a used DA* 50-135 and or a FA 77 Limited for any type of great image you want. They are both loaded with pixie (or pixel,) dust when used to their advantage. Any of the fast 50s is also a good length for interior shots. Welcome.
