Hello from Charlotte NC

Hello,
I'm happy to now be a part of this forum. A great resource for all things Pentax!
I'm looking for any thoughts about using a "shutter drag" technique on my new K2000.
Any thoughts or comments are appreciated.

Thanks,
JD

Thanks!
Actually I live in Midland, in Cabarrus Co.
I uesed to shoot a P3 (35mm) but it fell off the radar for a few years.
Now, I have a brand new K2000 with a pair of DAL lenes.
I'm in the middle of a class at "The Light Factory" in Charlotte, to get myself uo to speed with my DSLR. It has been most helpful.

Hi JD.
Welcome to the forum.
You'll find it informative and a great tool for your learning.
As for dragging the shutter, Neil van Niekerk has a great tutorial on the topic:

Hope it helps.
