Hello everyone, Jill here. Would you believe I've had a Pentax dSLR (K100D) for 2.5 years and only stumbled on this site last week!

I haven't got too much gear yet, and am nowhere near knowing what I'm doing but I'm having some fun finding out.

Oh well, nice meeting you...must do this again...

Thanks, I'm glad I've found this site it seems very friendly and lots of good advice (which is just what I need being somewhat of a novice).

Might be a while before I dare post any photos. My interests are in macro and wildlife mostly - I have a wide-angle lens but no dedicated macro lens as yet.

I'm such a novice, really. Really.

I haven't used the camera that much. I loved being out when we had the snow though - but everything was so pretty and that's not something you can say about Newcastle very often! I did get some shots of dogs playing in the snow and one or two of those I really like because they capture the moment but I don't think they'd pass much scrutiny.

If I dare put some of my work up - and ask for help - you certainly can

I got my K-x in December and never had anything other than a Point & Shoot before .

Folk here really do try and help and encourage you
let the education continue

I'm glad I've found this site. Everybody I know except my brother and I are on the dark side (canon/nikon etc). I have been toying with the idea of a new body and was wondering whether to go that route but now I know I won't!

I do hanker for a K20D but it's so far above my abilities I just can't justify getting one...but watch this space!
