New to the forum

hi all.

i haven't introduced myself, but i've already found this forum to be really helpful. i purchased a K-x last month with the two lenses (18-55 and 55-300). so far, i'm loving it.

mostly, i've been using a p&s for the past couple years and found it lacking. with the K-x, i'm just screwing around at the moment, but i hope to gradually get more skilled and hone my technique.

really looking forward to continuing to use this forum. thanks.

here's a few shots i've done so far that i like, if anyone has any tips right off the bat, i'm more than open to them.

my dog- shot within a couple minutes of opening the camera. don't remember what settings i was on. edited some levels a little with aperture.

zoo shots- mostly auto everything, no editing, used the 55-300 lens.

cahokia mounds site near St. Louis- no editing, mostly landscape setting, used my 18-55 lens.

Welcome to the forum - glad to have you on board.
Enjoy learning with your camera, it'll provide you with years of growing into and consistent shooting.
Take some time to read up on the exposure triad and experiment with more manual settings - only then will you be purposefully creating art, not just take photos.
