Hello My name kinda got messed up. It was supposed to be shawndw not my email address. I was wondering if an admin could fix my user name.

I first got interested in photography a few months back. I've been doing some research on different cameras and I'm thinking of getting a Rebel t2i as my first DSLR.

A few weeks back I picked up an old Pentax K1000 (35mm Film SLR) for about $50. It came with a 50mm lens and was the first SLR I've ever owned.

I was experimenting with a motion blur effect I learned in a tutorial video on this site.(1\8 of a second exposure)

Welcome to the forums. Nice shot, only issue i have is that the water is over exposed in areas.

The light meter isn't working, so some of the pictures are over or under exposed. I tested the battery with a multimeter, so I'm sure it's the battery and not the light meter that's shot.

Welcome shawndw to the Camera Labs forum!

I'm sure Gordon will soon find your thread here and change your username. If not, you could always send him a PM. I can't change it myself as a moderator.
