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'm hoping to attend meetings and tutorials depending on when oand where.
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 have Photoshop CS but am definitely a beginner. I do only very basic editting--image size, cloning tool, and levels. I don't get layering so that is one of my goals to learn and do.
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 like using the different filters for special effects photography.
What are the areas where you'd especially like to increase your skills?
I want to learn to Layer.
I like shooting anything that doesn't say "Hurry up and focus" so that means landscapes, cityscapes, archetecture and of course flowers. Photography is a challenging hobby that allows a person to grow, have adventure and experience satisfaction.
