Hello from Ontario

Hey everyone,

My name is Al and I hail from Bobcaygeon, ON. I am 18 and I started taking photography seriously some time in September of last year, though it was always bound to happen seeing as my grandfather was a Pentax dealer and a pioneer in high-speed and strobe photography a long time ago.

I was extremely lucky to receive a K200D for Christmas and my shutter-finger has been insuppressible ever since. My favourite subject-matter is most-likely older industrial/agricultural buildings. I also heavily enjoy close-up work, but my current equipment (or lack thereof in the lighting department) doesn't particularly allow for much work in this genre. I'm also starting to take a liking to studio work and some field work with animals.

Hopefully I've not bored anyone too badly. I'm hoping that some day I can be more than just a pedestrian photog and would love some advice once I can assemble a decent portfolio.

Welcome "home" Espie. Bobcaygeon eh! brings back memories of a friendship many years ago.

Anyway, hope grandfather is still around to share some experiences with you.
