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 would certainly like to attend meetings and tutorials that would help me hone my photography and editing skills.

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've done photography for many years and have shot digital for 10+ years. I just purchased Lightroom 3 but in the past, have used primarily Elements 6.

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

So far, have just "hacked" my way through most software with mixed results. I am scheduled to attend an intensive course in Lightroom in May.

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

Editing is definitely my weakness when it comes to photography. I shoot RAW but do little to edit RAW images. I've played around with HDR a little with Photomatix. I do most editing in Elements but have never been very skilled at it.

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

At this point, my commitment is to Lightroom 3 and developing some solid skills using it.


Hi, I'm Wendy Cohen

What Wendy C. is saying about this Meetup Group

Getting people together with the same goal of improving on their editing is the way to go. Everyone was certainly friendly and willing to share their experiences and knowledge.
