I am a geologist. Hello all.

After graduating college I decided to plunge head-first into photography. After pentaxforums.com user and internet ally deadwolfbones recruited me into his clan of Pentaxians I decided to use a graduation present IOU from the parents and get a k20d. I am currently living in the heart of Canyon Country, USA... otherwise known as Moab, Utah. I will be scouring the lens reviews and beginners threads for useful information and definitely will be posting to the gallery for helpful criticism. Hopefully I will be able to contribute to the community once I gain a little bit of knowledge.

Welcome to the family. Looking forward to your posts from Utah, especially some of those canyon shots.

Thanks. I have taken a bunch of photos so far of the surrounding country, but they have mostly been taken with the camera set to automatic as I haven't really learned the basics yet of exposure or aperture, etc. Bought some digital photography beginners books earlier this summer... I should really get around to reading them.

Another geologist.
Welcome.
Pentax seems to be a favoured brand for this vocation.
Look forward to your images.

Hello NOLA Geologist. First, welcome to the Forum and I look forward to seeing your pictues. Second, you GOTTA come up with a simplified name, or your actual first name, so I don't have to refer to you as NOLA Geologist in every post!!

But really, welcome to the secret society of Pentaxians.

Hello guys. I will gladly change my name once I figure out how to change profile information. Not used to this navigation of this website yet.

Your name is really fine however you want to do it. I just needed an ice breaker. Its what you are called behind your back that matters.

Welcome to the forum, I think there is a secret plan that geologists are taking over this site.

I'd love to be able to chat with fellow geologists in a sub-forum. By the looks if it, though, this forum has enough sub-forums already.

Welcome Geologist,

Hello from another geologist!

I got my degree back in the Miocene. I did some engineering geology for a while before moving over to computer programming. What type of geology do you do?

What kind of camera and lens setup have you used for field work?
