Not ignorant, but I class myself as an experienced beginner. I have completed photography and other "Fine Arts" courses at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC.
I like "faux" stuff; images that are not real, but are convincingly real to the viewer. This work is done by me using Rhinoceros 3D and Flamingo nX plus Photoshop CS 5 and Illustrator CS 5.5. A good web site to see "faux" work is at www.worth1000.com.
I have a Pentax K-x DSLR with 18-55 mm and[masked] mm kit lenses, plus a 35mm "prime" lens. I use a Kodak Z915 with 10X optical zoom and a Kodak Z990 (a Bridge camera with 30X optical zoom) for 80% of my shots. DSLR's are TOO big!
How to take and manipulate photos for "faux" and "special effects" creations and get to know club members who have similar interests.
I am a retired guy, interested in digital photography and Photoshop to make "faux" pictures. I am interested in making images that are not real, but after I've done my manipulations they'll look convincingly realistic, especially in Giclée prints.
From what I saw the club encourages a range of interests and plenty of help and discussion. If a hobbiest is interested in photography and photoshop then he/she can do no better than join this Meetup Group.
