Greetings from smoggy Los Angeles

Hello, My name is Eric,

I recently purchased a K3iii monochrome and finally had an excuse to join this legendary forum.

My first DSLR after years of shooting EVIL cameras. I actually like them better. One of the main reasons is whenever anyone asks to see the shot, I can say, "Yeah... these cameras kind of don't work that way."

I work in film and television advertising, designing posters and cutting trailers during the day and primarily shooting the street at night.

I also noticed there isn't a Monochrome Proud Owner banner, so I spent some time making one. I will probably make an LX one since that's the only Pentax I own.

Cheers,

Eric

Welcome! Kudos to you for making the new banner. Glad you are finding the Pentax experience a positive one.

FYI, I did a bunch of work several years ago at The Broad for 2 sessions of 3 weeks' each. There in the shop i bought a set of manhattan style whisky glasses made by a female coop. Two were slightly gold colored and said "SUN" in gold block letters, and the other two were slightly smoky colorwed and said "SMOG". Had to have 'em!

I remember the LA smog in the early 80s; one week in the city and it took another week for my throat to recuperate. Welcome to the madhouse, you’ll enjoy the Monochrome. Heck, I’m sure I would too lol!
