Hi everybody, I'm new...


I'm new in this forum and also in the "reflex" world. I live in France (40km from Paris) and I'm a beginner in digital photography. I bought three weeks ago a Pentax K20D (my first , with the 18-55 II, a 50mm 1.4 and 70-300) and I am very happy with it ! I would like to make family, landscapes and animals photography.

I'm 35 years old, married, 3 daughters. I work as a technical architect (computer science).

Welcome to the forum Malsi. Congratulations on your kit, you've got quite a decent setup to be starting off with.

Welcome Malsi.
You have just about all you need to start your photographic journey - just get out there and shoot lots of anything, including your wife and kids, and you'll find yourself growing quickly.
All the best.

Thank you very much for your welcome messages ! During those 3 weeks, I read the K20D manual (for the technical aspect). I've already done 3000 shots for training! Now, I need to learn how to make good photos .

I've just ordered a remote control and would like to change the "basic" 18-55. I need to read more threads to know witch lens will be the best for my needs.



PS: Sorry for my English, I need to practice more .
