RPEG's focus is on photography and photo editing, but Meetup's focus is on getting people together face-to-face. Are you able to attend at least some of our meetings and tutorials? Do you sincerely plan to do so? If so, please continue!

Yes

Experience isn't required for membership, but we do ask that your main reason for joining be an interest in cameras and photo-editing. What editor (if any) are you using? If Photoshop, which version? Beginner, intermediate, advanced or expert?

GIMP. I've been using is since about 2006. I would consider myself intermediate.

If experienced with your program(s), how did you LEARN the program along the way? Books? Videos? In a formal school curriculum? On the job? Please be as specific as possible

Self taught, mostly trial and error with some help from online tutorials

If experienced, what areas of photo editing do you consider your strengths? Portrait touchups? Compositing? HDR Imaging? Web? Artistic? Photo Repair? Other? Please specify.

I'm pretty good with compositing. I also create panographs and symmetrical patterns from portions of images. Lately I've been taking a lot of macro pictures with my phone and an additional macro lens

What are the areas where you'd especially like to increase your skills?

I have tried HDR and photo repair a few times and would like to gain more experience in those areas. I would also like to improve my compositing skills.

Introduction

My goal is to get the most out of my Nikon D3000, without spending a ton of money on extra gear...
