New to photography and Pentax

Hi everybody,
I am just starting my journey in photography. I am doing some reading and trying to shoot when I can. Although I have been told to shoot more and read less, I think I need some basics.
My gear: Pentax K20D, SMC Pentax DA18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 AL II and Tamron SP AF28-75mm F/2.8 XR Di.
I am looking forward to learning from and sharing with the Pentaxian community!
Thanks!
Lanin

Welcome Lanin. Read the K20D manual, take some shots, read the manual again, take some more shots and continue to repeat. I found this to be the best way to learn the basics...and the using the forum, of course. All the best, Enjoy your photography

Hey Lanin.
Welcome.
You've got a great starting kit for taking great shots.
Enjoy practicing and experimenting.
Test out what you read and try new ways of capturing things.
