    Hi guys! I am new to Pentax community but has always been following news on Pentax and stuff. Has a friend (used to be a Pentax user) who told me once that the people here in Pentax community are friendly and easy-going. Much as I have not joined any Pentax outing yet, I am very much interested in learning all the techniques about lighting composition, landscapes, street shots and stuff related to photography. As for this Pentax Share Session which you guys are planning to come up with, is it possible for a newcomer like me to join in the fun and learn?
    Regards,

    Thanks. That'd be a great help. Proper venue had been our biggest issue in previous sessions ... Will definitely contact you when we are ready to go

    Actually for me, I don't need a classroom. Just anywhere with a combination of indoors/outdoors and a white wall.
    I can hold a session anytime as long as there are 3 people. (1 to act as model, 1 to assist lighting, 1 to shoot) Best to approach me on Facebook since I don't log in here often.
    Brand loyalty? Pffttt...| Got Flickr?
    I shoot JPEG (got a problem with that?)

    I like the idea! Kudos to TS!
    I have always been shooting streets and portraits and sometimes landscapes and didn't really experience much on other stuffs.
    Still very much a blur king in lightings, macro, HDR, sports, wild life and post processing.
    Joined the outings twice but didn't get to know the community much.
    I would love the opportunity to know more friends through these learning/sharing sessions.
    And I don't mind paying as a token of appreciation to the SIFUs...
    Cheers!

    You will have to join the outings more to know for folks

    Ask and you shall receive;
    seek and you will find;
    knock and the door will be opened to you

    I'm not a pro in birding but I can share my knowledge & experience.
    I do not need a classroom too, can PM me for shooting together but not in big group, ideally 2-3 shooters.
    *birding is different from street-shooting, landscape and other photography, the number does matter.
    Currently I don't see a big group into birding but may change once the DA 550/F5.6 is out in the market.
    But well still can start with 300mm.

    Depneds on your lens..
    If you are using 300mm lens (not F2.8), any tripod that's rated 10kg load paired with good ballhead should be enough. If you can afford, go for gimbal head. If you're on a 300/F2.8 or 500mm telephoto/prime lens, a stable tripod without centre column is recommended. Such tripod + gimbal head cheapest is about $1k.
    If you already have a stable tripod + ballhead, you can choose to go with Wimberley Sidekick.
