New guy in Utah

Howdy all! I just found this forum while searching for accessories for my new K100D. I recently purchased my camera body from I already own a Pentax 35 mm SLR (ZX-7) and own a few lenses for that so it was a no brainer to by the Pentax DSLR camera body. Now I just need to learn how to use this thing! I'm planning on taking some classes here locally in a month or so to figure this thing out.

I plan on using this site as a knowledge base so I hope you guys know what your talking about!

Thanks for the warm welcome guys/gals! It looks like we got people from all over the world here, that's awesome!!

As far as some of my pics go, well....... I'll post some up here but to be honest it looks like child's play next to what I am seeing here already. I honestly have no idea what I am doing yet so I am still using the K100D just like a point and shoot. I am taking some classes next month to learn how to use the camera and get some basic understanding about photography. I figure after that I should be able to understand "photo speak" and learn from you guys!

So, here are some of my pics that I have taken since getting the camera a few weeks ago. It sure is fun just playing around even if I have no idea what I'm doing!

Here are some more

Like I said, I'm just playing around right now until I learn how to really use the camera. It's still fun though!

Hi Mr. Tibbs.
Another Utahn here. Welcome.

I also bought my K100D from sellout.woot. Same forum name there as here. I love the thing and am constantly amazed at all it can do.

Very nice pics by the way. I'd like to see the snow pics--can't wait till we get snow here for some serious winter scenes.
