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 events when permitted. Whats the sense of joining if your not going to participate !!

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 am currently using Adobe Element 8, Lightroom 4 and OnOne Suite 7.5

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

For Element 8 I purchased a book after doing some research (helps a little - I am more of a hands on learner).

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

Compositing, HDR Imaging

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

All - I am interested in exploring the oportunities the software has to offer. I'm guessing that I am just beginning to scratch the surface.


I have enjoyed taking picture my entire life. I cut my teeth in the Wedding Photography business almost straight out of high school and enjoyed that for several years. I continue to enjoy photogrphy and always want to learn more.
