I purchased the entry-level Pentax K-50 16MP DSLR in January 2017 which was first released in 2013. The camera was sold in a bundle with two lenses, the DA L 18-55mm WR f3.5-5.6 and 50-200mm WR Lenses. I purchased two additional lenses in the past several months; the Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro Telephoto Zoom Lens and Pentax DA 50mm f1.8 lens.
In an effort to learn how to use this camera I have downloaded many tutorials from photographers such as Gavin Hoey, Mark Wallace, Matt Granger, Tony and Chelsea Northrup, Spyros Heniadis and Jared Polin, to name a few. At present I consider myself to be a beginning novice amateur photographer. This website is a record of my progress in that effort to become an amateur photographer with a working knowledge of my camera to shoot satisfactory photos.
