Hi, I'm Joe, and I've been shooting on and off for about 20 years. I primarily shoot outdoor things (buildings, birds, street scenes), though I'd like to delve more into studio shooting.

How long have you enjoyed photography? What got you into it?

About 20 years. I really don't remember what got me into it...

What kind of camera do you use, and what is your favorite lens?

Nikon D40. No real favorites for lenses. Whatever is on the body at the time, if I can get a shot w/o changing lenses. I guess I prefer zooms, though... I have used a Canon 400 mm for some bird shots, and would like to use that again.

What type of photography do you most enjoy (e.g. portraiture, landscape, macro, street photography, nature, candid, etc.)?

Landscape, macro, street, nature.

How would you like to improve your photography? What are your goals?

I'd like to learn more about studio photography (lighting, etc), and learn more about all of the extra controls/settings on digital cameras. It can be very confusing with all of the settings that are available on digital SLRs.

How did you hear about our group?

Probably originally in the A2 Observer or at the Library. Now via Meetup.
