New Photographer Chosen Pentax

Hi guys,

Just a quick thread to say 'hi'. I'm brand new to photography and have chosen Pentax for a number of reasons. Going to take my first steps with the K-70 and go from there. Hope to learn a lot and meet new people

Welcome to the forum
This is the place to learn.

I did a year of college in technical photography, taught photography for 15 years, and then spent a few years selling on the craft show circuit. And I still learn new stuff here all the time. No question is too dumb.

Welcome to the Forums, from Australia. You have made a good choice with Pentax - but of course we are a bit biased here!

As I always recommend to a new photographer, read the book Understanding Exposure by Bryan Petersen. There are other good ones, but that one is great.

Hi,

I am not biased!
It is just that I didn't know that there were other brands made!
Welcome to the forum, again from Australia.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. I've sure got a lot to learn, and this seems like a great place to do it.

I'll add this to my reading list. I'm currently working my way through something that I've had sitting on my bookshelf for years - seems like a good enough place to start:

Exposure and Lighting for Digital Photographers Only (For Only): Amazon.co.uk: Michael Meadhra, Charlotte K. Lowrie: 9781118078990: Amazon.co.uk:

I'm also enjoying watching the tutorials on Linkedin Learning by Ben Long. He seems to know his stuff and has a great teaching style.
