Greetings from Utah!

Hello!

I'm a college student out at USU, I switched over from a Nikon D5100 to my Pentax K-3! I gotta say I love the Pentax system more than the Nikon that I was using!

I primarily shoot astrophotography (when school isn't insane). Otherwise I kinda just shoot whatever, I love taking pictures!

I'm getting into film photography with a Phoenix P1 that I got super recently, which is super fun! I also have a few polaroid cameras for quick snaps!

Attached is some of my work that I've processed (I keep all of my other stuff on a different PC lol, so this is what I've got here lol)

Welcome to the club, and to Pentax Forums. You’ll find many like-minded film photographers here, not to mention astro-photographers.

welcome to the Pentax realm!!! Pentax makes some great cameras/lenses. Enjoy! I have been on a hiatus from photography for about a year..but I am now re-energized and ready for 2024 and do some photography. I also have Pentax K-3!
