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, I'm looking forward to the meetings.
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'm particularly interested in learning how to use Lightroom. I currently use Photoshop Elements 10. I would classify myself as an intermediate editor with PSE.
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
I taught myself through online tutorials, books, and practice. I'm still learning!
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; general photo enhancement
What are the areas where you'd especially like to increase your skills?
HDR Imaging (I have no experience here.)
Lightroom (I recently took a local course but am still struggling with organizing my photos in LR. Editing seems much easier than the organization.)
I'm a retired teacher, enjoying photography, reading, gardening, and paper crafting now that I can plan my own days.
