Atlanta "ATL" GA saying Hello!

I just realized that with how long I've been on here that I never posted in this section... So here it is...

I started working with a Pentax K1000 when I was just 12 years old. I have shot photography for websites of night clubs I use to work in, in the Metro Atlanta area. That was about 9 years ago. In 2005 I wanted to switch to digital but all I could afford was an Oly P&S. Which I found to be more of a P.O.S. I quickly realized that I missed SLR's and bought my K10D in 2007. Since then I have sold the K10D to my friend(who I got interested in the Pentax system) and bought the K7. I am now dusting off my skills and trying to remember what was second nature to me.

The main thing is that I am looking for is interesting subjects to shoot, and I wouldn't mind hooking up with an Atlanta area Pentaxian/Photography group if there is one. Hopefully everyone will be kind enough to give me honest(even if painful) advice on my photography so that I can grow my skills even further.
