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

I've always had cameras since I was a kid and loved taking photos. Several years ago, I became interested in photo editing when I received Photoshop Elements bundled with a scanner I bought. Once I became good at editing photos, I decided I should get a better camera and learn to take better photos. I bought my first dSLR and took a couple courses in 2007, and have since upgraded to better gear.

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

Canon 5D Mark II . My favorite lenses are Canon EF[masked]mm f/4 L IS and Canon EF 85mm f/1.8.

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

Portraiture, landscape, nature, urban exploration and old barns.

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

I would like my camera settings to become second nature to me and to consistenly take well-exposed, sharp images. I want to become more proficient with lighting, particularly studio lighting and modifiers.

How did you hear about our group?

I came across meetup.com while searching for something else.

Introduction
