I just discovered this forum and it's great. I am very much a beginner and enjoy photography as a hobby. I have a Pentax ist Ds2 that I am enjoying very much. I have so much to learn and I am hoping this is the place to learn it. I keep very busy with my work and my 16 month old so finding time to get out and take photos is tough. My family and my car are a couple of my favorite subjects to photgraph. I currently have only two lenses. The standard Pentax 18-55 that was a part of the Ds2 package and a Pentax-FA SMC 80-200. I value imput from those that know more than I do so feel free to comment my posts.
I think this is a great place to learn. Being a beginner myself i frequently search the forum for technical and practical tips. The photo gallery is a great place for inspiration, a lot of great photographers here.
Looking forward to seeing some pictures. I have a 9 month old daughter, funny how i keep seeing her in the viewinder...
