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!
I plan on attending as many as I can.
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?
i have photoshop cs5 but have not really learned to use it. other photographers mentioned lightroom and I am liking it and learning to use it. i consider myself a beginner/intermediate with both photoshop cd5 and lightroom 5.
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
