Hello from Finland

Hello all. I'm 23 year old amateur photographer from Finland, without any goal to achieve anything, just enjoying to take pictures.

I have been lurking this site since from 2014 when I got my first Pentax, K-30. I recently acquired KP, and finally decided to make account to forum. Photography bug bit me around 2009 (started with Olympus) when I was 13 years old, now gaining my interest to photography again when I got KP, which seems to be fantastic camera. I have collected some lenses during the years, mostly using Pentax DA 16-45mm F4, DA 40mm F2.8 Limited and Sigma 100-300mm F4 EX DG APO.

If you want to check my flickr, head over here: Teemu Vesa | Flickr.

Hi from Australia. Good to have you on board. That Sigma 100-300 f4 is a highly rated lens. You should get some use out of it in wild life in Finland (speaking of Finland, I am about to walk out the door with a Sako on my shoulder )

Welcome to Pentax Forums from Canada! It's super that you have joined.

Lurking since 2014, eh? I guess you have a lot of catching up to do.

Your Flickr has some really interesting pictures -- I especially like the Aurora and the big truck fair. Ottawa is only at 45 degrees N, so we are lucky to see Aurora Borealis perhaps a couple of times per year.

Welcome to the Forums......

BTW the 16-45mm was one of my main walk around lenses for years and it proved to be a nice lens in regards to the results it produced.

Hello from Greece! Very interesting collection of photos you have there! You seem to have a very artistic look. I especially like some of your flash shots.

Tervetuloa! I did have a look of your photos. Good work, and seems like you are little more north than where I'm at. Great set of lenses too

Tervetuloa, Joro!

Wish I could write more in Finnish, but my knowledge is limited. . . .

Anyway, I'm glad you've got an account now. It's a great forum, and there are quite a few Finns here. (And at least one member who's part Finnish who wishes he were there rather than in Wisconsin in the US. . . .)
