Now a Days / When I shoot plants and trees they continue to live. When I shoot insects and animals they continue to live. When I shoot woman and man they continue to live. For now a days my weapon of choice is my camera, my wonderful camera. D.Amaral 3/6/12 Prefer shootin' wildlife, nature and macro. Not too crazy 'bout people but my interests are expanding.
Pentax dslrs. K5 and K20D, mostly Tamron and Sigma lenses and Pentax kit glass. I also have a couple of Pentax ME Supers, a Pentax AF ZX-30, and a 1958 Petri 1.9 that was the first real camera I used as a young teen (but then sports took over). I also have a p&s Canon Power Shot SD 1200 IS.
I'm not totally ignorant about the hobby but it seems the more I learn the more I forget. Definitely an amateur.
Howdy! Noticed that no one in the group uses Pentax equipment. Well now, someone does! Lived in Ukiah 29 years, enjoy art (oils & acrylics) but now my interests are toward photography and I've got a ton to learn yet.
Went to my first meeting today; ran into some nice folks; may need to change some of my Sunday priorities.
