Hello from the Big Apple

Hi Gang:

My name is Richard and I live in New York City. I've been a working photographer since 1956 (I'm kind of "semi-retired" now) but I'm new to Pentax. My photographic background includes photojournalism (my specialty was human conflict stories, mostly in Africa), advertising, and portraiture. Additionally, I was a Student Advisor and Associate Dean at the New York Institute of Photography for about eight years, until the end of 2005 and I occasionally still write articles for their website. Once in a while I tutor private students.

I'm not sure what I can contribute here. The K10D is my first DSLR and I really like it. However, I'm not really a "gear head" and don't buy photo equipment very often. Whatever works - for me and for the client - has always been my philosophy.

Anyway, this seems like a friendly place and I just wanted to say hello.

Regards to all,

Glad to have you on board! Enjoy your time here!

A touch of reality and a modicum of sanity would be a great help

Have you seen the number of gear addicts and pixel peepers????
