Hey, from SoCal

Hey guys!

My neighbor had a pentax K100d, which he let me use. DSLR's intrigued me, so I gave it a try falling in love. He got me into photography, and taught me alot.

Soon after, I searched for my own DSLR, and after trying out all the brands for my price range (up to $600ish with kit lens). I fell in love with the pentax K200d which I got for extremely cheap (thank you amazon!) and thats what I currently use. I love macro work, and thats about all I do even though I only have my kit lens atm.

I'm here to learn more about my camera, how to use it, and a little help with lens choices :P
