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!
Plenty of computer experience and access to both platforms along with PS, Aperture, Lightroom, and HDR software. Little experience with them all except the basics. Anxious to learn more.
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?
PS recently upgraded to 5, Aperture, and Lightroom 3 but soon to buy 4. Beginner at all.
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
Self taught on a as needed basis.
If experienced, what areas of photo editing do you consider your strengths? Portrait touchups? Compositing? HDR Imaging? Web? Artistic? Photo Repair? Other? Please specify.
No specific areas of expertise.
What are the areas where you'd especially like to increase your skills?
Color correction and retouching.
A hobbiest photographer for many years. Now becoming more serious. Write three regular magazine columns for two different magazines. One published in the US and one in the UK. I do all of my photography. Don't need to correct it but need to know.
