I shoot a Nikon D3000 and since joining this group, I have greatly improved my photography skill level. The pictures that I used to think were good are now much better. A little information is powerful. I have learned about composure, aperture, shutter speed and ISO and how to combine it all to make a good picture. I am also learning more about manipulating my raw pictures to make them even better. Now I "make" pictures, instead of just "take" them. The group is a great resource and I have fun at the same time. Everyone is friendly and ready to answer any questions. I have a Nikon Coolpix L105 that I carry at all times, just in case I need a picture if an opportunity arises. These "point and shoot" pictures are much improved, too!
I continue to find the southwestern landscapes awe inspiring. I am experimenting more with artistic shots and including people and pets. I am also enjoying working with photo editing software: PhotoShop, NIK, Lightroom to make more interesting composite pictures that have meaning to me.
My name is Lynn. Moved to Arizona from Michigan in June 2011. I love nature and Arizona's mountains and southwestern scenery. I enjoy exploring this beautiful state, with my new friends. I love to read, garden, travel, hike and make pictures!
THIS is a Great group with a variety of photo nuts of all experiences. A good mix of personalities and ideas...and this "old dog" might even learn a few new tricks !! (hehehe)
