Found the thread below and thought this forum might be what I have been looking for....

https://www.uglyhedgehog.com/t-578617-3.html

Hello...Rob here, 50 yr old wannabe photographer. Got married March of 21...Jen loves pinup and hot rods/rockabilly scene. I have always been a car guy and who does not like to see a girl all done up. I purchased a K5 and a lot of old glass after my daughter was born in 09. But I never really got into it. Being Jen likes to do photoshoots I decided I would really get into it this time. I picked up a Fuji X-T20, a X Pro1 and some nice APSC X mount lenses. I have a Song A7II on the way, I never 100% understood the whole FF vs APSC and how it relates to 35mm, where the image goes through the lens etc. I finally understood and decided a FF was the way to go with all the old glass I have. Somewhere in my search I found out about the Minolta 85mm 2.8 varisoft and the Pentax 85mm soft focus lens. They are on the way from Japan now lol.

I had been looking for a forum that had info for those of us just getting started. I stumbled onto this forum today. The feedback on the portrait photos in the top thread was really informative and this just seemed like a great place to check out. Usually information has been covered before and its just a matter of finding it. But we also dont always know the questions to ask. Anyway, have a 3 day weekend to dig through the forum.....
