Just wanted to introduce myself. I just upgraded my digital point & shoot camera which was a Canon & bought a Pentax K200D with the 18-55 lens. I plan to buy a telephoto lens, external flash, & possibly a macro lens etc. in the future. I had a film SLR camera in the past but mostly used it on automatic. I am doing some reading to review things like aperture, shutter speed etc. I want to learn as much as I can about how to take good pictures in various situations.

I take mostly family, my pets, some travel & scenery & would like to take more nature photos. I would like to try macro photography especially with flowers & possibly some still life. I would like to learn how to take good photos in low light situations like the one I encountered a while ago where the moon was shining through the trees in my back yard.

I look forward to being part of this group.
