Hi from South Australia

Hi Pentax PPL,

I'm new to photography and Pentax cameras. Hoping to learn a lot about taking good photos and sharing my experiences through this journey.

I have just purchased a K20D with Pentax DA17-70mm and DA55-300mm lenses.
I will be going to Thailand next week and will be taking many photos, so I will share these and hopefully get some pointers on what I should do to improve them.

Damn Brit

Welcome to the forum Kadachi and congratulations on the camera and lenses.
Make sure you read the manual before you go to Thailand.
Enjoy your trip, I like forward to seeing some shots when you return.

Greetings and welcome Kadachi!

You've got some nice kit there for a start! I'm sure you'll have lots of fun with it. Make sure you have a good play before you fly off to get the most out of your kit

Oh yeah - there are quite a few South Aussies here too, feel free to check out the South Aussie Pentaxians social group and join in!

Look forward to few images from your o/s jaunt!
