Were you ever a film photographer?

Yes! My previous SLR used film, and I was quite good when I was focused on photography in High School. Unfortunately, this favorite hobby fell by the wayside in college. But this year, I was inspired to pick it up again, this time in digital form!

On a scale from 1 to 10 (10 being an expert / instructor), how proficient are you in Photoshop?

I'm not very proficient in Photoshop. Right now I am using mostly Adobe Lightroom, and I have gotten pretty good with editing photos in there. Once I acquire Photoshop, I plan on ramping up my skills in that area as well.

Which cameras do you use? Make & model (ie. Nikon D700, Canon 5D MKII, or Sony A900).

Right now I have a Nikon D3100. As I get more proficient I would like to get a higher grad model.

If you could go back to before the camera was invented in 1825, with your camera, what event or person would you photograph, between the time of Adam and Eve and 1825

Oh goodness! What a question. Although there are a ton to choose from, I think my top choice would be to have followed Paul the Apostle as his personal photographer. I've followed a lot of his trail in Greece, & would have loved to document his life.

What is your favorite lens? Then, IMPORTANT: Please make sure you enter your FIRST & LAST NAME in your Account profile & review our Pre-join Checklist on our Pages menu: http://www.meetup.com/Northern-Virginia-Professional-Photographers-VA-DC/about/

Right now, I have a Nikkor 18-55mm f/[masked] AF-S DX VR. In the near future, I am hoping to get a few new lenses so those can be my favorite!

Introduction

Hi, my name is Rachel Lowe, and I recently moved to Woodbridge last May. After a long hiatus from photography, I recently bought myself a new DSLR and am relearning the ropes. I would love to meet up with other photographers in the area!
