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!


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?

Photoshop Elements; I have a few older programs, Roxio etc. that I don't use much any more. I also edit on an Apple sometimes with I photo. I'd classify myself as an intermediate, though Photoshop does have me challenged. I have purchased Lightroom but have not loaded it into my computer yet.

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

Yes Books, Videos, Seniornet Lab class, demonstrations, etc.

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'd like to do more artistic compositions, and certainly use it for touchups and refinements.

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

Like to master layers, masks, ... maybe lightroom and other programs I've heard of but not used like topaz, etc.


I have been an amateur photographer most of my adult life. I've worked in film, b&w darkroom, and color film and slides. After a hiatus, I am excitedly exploring the vast field of digital photography. Joyce Pearson informed me of this group.

What loretta p. is saying about this Meetup Group

Super. I really like the group and the attitudes too. Helpful, informative, just what I'm needing right now.
