I am 52 and live in Colorado and getting serious about learning photography since I just got a Pentax K10D for pics of our new baby mostly. I am going to take the basic classes at Wolf camera and study in this group. There is alot to learn. Although I rank well on standard IQ tests I find the amount of information to assimilate with photography to be overwhelming at time. I suppose I will bite of bits and pieces as I can and the entire plate will get smaller in time. I post alot to a window cleaners group that I am involved in and sometime to the BMW owners group if I need help on the cars. Should my new cameras flash not work everytime it is up? The wife used it today and said it did not always fire.
