Being new to this I don't really have much advice to give, however one thing that I have noticed that has helped me in my pictures is to not only think about the subject of your pictures and the lighting, but also look at the space around your subject, the negative space and think about how you can use that to enhance your subject. Try and think about how you can use the patterns or walls around your subject to make it stand out. It's helped me a lot :) Thanks for the giveaway guys!

How well do you think this lens would work on a K-S1?

Edit: Also could you pm me pictures of the lens? Your last 2 pictures for some reason are not working for me :(

It's a SMC Pentax-M 6121068. Do the ending numbers mean anything? It also came with a 49mm UV filter :D I still need to clean it.

My new K-s1 will be coming in on Monday so I'll be using that for the SIC, along with a 50mm f1.7 I bought off Craigslist. I figured this challenge would be a good way to get me started in photography :D

Awesome! Thank you so much for the advice. After a quick search of the database I found that the Quantaray lens should work fine, but the Bell & Howel had no information on it. Ah well. I'll try it to see if it works. If not then it can be put on display :D I can't wait to start taking pictures with these. I was gonna go a 50mm lens anyway so thats a huge plus! saved me a lot of money haha

Need help with old lenses for new K-S1

I recently purchased a K-S1 off adorama and it should be coming in on Monday. In the meantime, went searching for some older lenses for cheap off of craigslist since they might be compatible with the K-S1 and thus I found an ad for a Pentax MX and 3 lenses. The lady I bought them from said they should all be functional and so for $40 I figured why not. The lenses are:

Lens 1: SMC Pentax-M 1.7 f50mm
Lens 2: Bell & Howel 2.8 f28mm
Lens 3: Quantaray 4-5.6 f70-210mm

Google wasn't much help on giving me any information on these so I was wondering if you guys could help! Do I need any adapters for these? Are they decent lenses at least for a beginner? Any tips on using them? What would be a good way to clean them as they have a fair amount of dust on them.

Thank you guys ahead of time :D I can take pictures of them if necessary. Sadly not with the K-S1 as it's not in yet :(

My name is Carlitos and I'm just getting into the wonderful world of photography! I have yet to buy a camera, and being a poor college student I figured a used Pentax might be ideal for me as it also offers the chance of cheaper older lenses. I'm thinking about getting either a k-s1 or a used k-50. I'm also super into mechanical keyboards, video games, and fountain pens!

Please send any beginner tutorials or good deals my way on cameras and lenses! Happy holidays everyone!
