Intermediate, I do have a pro level camera of which I am always learning something new about every time I use it.
Land and Seascapes and portrait with interesting backgrounds, my Wife enjoys her close up flower shots, her 105mm Macro is her favorite lens.
Most anywhere but I do really enjoy taking walks or drives into the country or in through the woods looking for a nice waterfall to practice my exposure shots.
I try to not do much post camera processing right now, I might crop or do a small amount of tweeking here and there with Nikon Capture NX2. I do like the effects of some HDR photos and would like to try that in the future. I feel that some people go a bit to crazy using the Photoshop and such to where the pictures begin to look to unnatural, I feel its OK applied to photos for commercial work to where you are trying to sell a product but I think it is better to strive to get the better shot when you take the initial picture to make yourself a better photographer and not depend upon post camera editing.
My Wife and I are planning to put together a website someday but for now she puts both of our pictures on her Facebook to share with our friends and her family in the Philippines.
My Wife Janette and I enjoy traveling to interesting places to practice our photography skills. Looking forward to meeting and making new friends here in the group events and learning more techniques from others and also sharing what I already know.
Great bunch of folks, was nice to meet some new members today also. Wish we could have spent some time with some of the members after the workshop but Janette and I had to get to a birthday party to take pictures there.
