Hi, I'm new.

Hello, My name is Cameron and I am new. New to Pentax. New to this forum and new to photgraphy beyond the green rectangle on the dial and the odd shouts of "CHEESE".

I recently decided that enough is enough. I am 50 years old and I can't take a decent photo to save my life so I have jumped in head first. I bought a Pentax K20D, a copy of Photoshop Elements and have signed up for some classes in the Spring.

I welcome any and all suggestions, hints, advice, scorn, derision, slings and arrows.

Here is a link to some of my first and, hopefully, worst photos. I have posted them on a site called RedBubble.

"Last One In's A Rotten (Frozen) Egg" by LamondofCowal [2425811] - RedBubble

So, hello fellow Pentaxians and thanks for having me.

I second all that Kurt said. You might also want to invest in Adobe Lightroom for post processing. It works well with Elements and is very intuitive.
