The photography bug sunk its teeth shortly after college in 1996. This was also the time my wife and I were married. Our first camera was a Canon, compact 35-mm film thrift store special that we both shot many rolls of film through. Moving into the world of custom motorcycles, I felt the need to move on to a point and shoot digital to capture my work. At that time, 2.1 mega-pixels were considered to be large. Since then, I've moved onto the Pentax K100D and I'm ready for the "rumored" K20D as my next step up camera. The K100D has been and continues to be a wonderful camera to have in your arsenal and performs very well for a 6.1-meg DSLR. Many prints are very sharp at enlarged sizes of 11x14 & 13x19 sizes. My main subject matter, at this point, would have to be nature and animals. I’m working on extending into portraiture work and the versatility of the Pentax systems continues to work well in that avenue.
