Greetings from Washington State - Long time Pentax User

Hello Everyone. I'm happy to have finally joined the community. I've visited the site many times before, but never took the time to join until now. My first camera was my grandfather's Pentax ME Super with a 50mm lens which I still own to this day and happily use often. Later I got into autofocus and bought an SF1 new (still got it and works great).

I'm mostly a portrait / fashion shooter. People have always been my favorite subjects to photograph. Now I mainly shoot a lot of medium format film. My favorite camera is my Pentax 645n (included a couple photos below I took with it) and in a close second place the Pentax 6x7.

I do shoot some digital and switched from Canon to a Fujifilm X-T3 and I'll never look back.

Again, glad to be here and look forward to any discussions about Pentax gear and shooting with film.

-JW
