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

I have enjoyed taking photos of family, vacations, etc. for years, but I am currently taking my first photography class at WCC after seeing how well my vacation photos from Alaska turned out with a point and shoot on auto. I've enjoyed my class so much that I am taking another next semester and am hoping to get a Canon 60D for Christmas.

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

Currently use Panasonic Lumix point and shoot or a Canon rebel borrowed from WCC, but I plan to get a Canon 60D for Christmas with an[masked] lens.

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

I most enjoy landscape and outdoor photography. I have no experience with formal portraiture. I also enjoyed taking urban photos for a class assignment and used "Urban Geometry" as my theme for my website assignment.

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

Learn more about light for indoor and nighttime photography. Learn to use tripod. General improvement on photo techniques and learn Photoshop (currently use Lightroom). I am definitely a beginner although I feel my photos have improved quite a bit during my photography class.

How did you hear about our group?

From Joshua C., who is in my PHO 111 class at WCC. He's my technical advisor among the students :)


I found out about this group through Joshua C., who is in my PHO 111 class at WCC. I am a stay at home mom with one teenager at MSU and one at Community H.S. Live in Ann Arbor on west side.
