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

I've been taking pictures for quite a few years, and bought my first SLR in the '90's.

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

Right now, I'm working with a FujiFilm A-170 digital point-and-shoot which was given to me as a gift. It's not as fancy as some cameras, but I do get great images with it! I hope to soon move up to some type of DSLR, so that I can use filters and different lenses again.

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

My own favorite images tend to be of architecture, details of buildings, city-scapes, and land- and waterscapes.

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

Among my goals is to learn more about digital processing and editing techniques. I do not have Photoshop on my computer, but I do have some others I work with: Gimp 2, Paint.Net, and Kodak Easy Share. Both of the first two appear to have many of the same editing options as Photoshop, and they have the advantage of being freeware. I tend to use Paint.Net most frequently because I learned of it first. I want to learn more about the use of layers and object selection, just to name two items.

How did you hear about our group?

A coaching professional I know in Ann Arbor mentioned the group to me, and I followed up by internet.

Introduction

Hi, I'm Mike, and I'm interested in meeting and learning from other photographers.
