Hello from Atlanta


Good (chilly) morning from Atlanta Ga. I'm just getting "serious" about photography again after a 20 year or so hiatus. I used to take a lot of film photos with a ME Super and a Super Program when I was in high school, won a couple of small awards - Kodak Regional Medallion of Excellence for a photo that has since vanished in the morass of my parent's house - one day I'll get it back!, and I was state and national winner in the 4-H photography in 1984. My father-in-law gave me an *ist dL a couple of years ago, I think he was tired of getting crappy photos of his granddaughter from my Nikon Coolpix 880. :-) This christmas he gave me a Digital Photography 101 class at Atlanta's Showcase Camera, it's been great to get back into it, picking back up the basics and shooting in manual. (You can see my homework to date at Flickr: hofo's Photostream).

Welcome to the forum, it sounds like you've just got to waken that photographic eye of yours from it's 20 year sleep. :ugh:

Welcome Hofo! I'm in Alpharetta, so not far; will connect with you on Flickr after posting this.

I switched to Pentax last year after being a long-time #$non user. I love photography and after making the move to digital, am really hoping to step up my game (in terms of composition, post-processing, overall quality of shots, etc.); these folks in Pentax Forums are awesome and you will enjoy being part of this community.

Hey, it's a contemporary of mine! (Canon FD holdout, here, always liked the old Pentaxes, though, and came here for digital)

Welcome, and be sure to drop in on the Film board.
