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, absolutely. I took a brief summer class on photoshop and it got me really interested in editing photos creatively. Photoshop and lightroom I have been trying to teach myself on lately

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 version CS6. I also have CS5 but only use it because I'm still learning CS6. I'm also trying to learn lightroom 4.1. I would consider myself an intermediate level.

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 have 3 or 4 books regarding photography plus taking a 6 week summer course this year. I also have been watching several you tube videos for instruction and own 2 instructional DVDs that professional photographers have made.

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

Probably compositing and HDR imaging the most. I've also been playing with editing landscape shots

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

Using photoshop and taking photos with a "critical eye"


Hi everyone, my name is Stephen and I live in Farmington. Ever since the weather starting getting warmer, I've been wanting to get out and start shooting things. I have had my Canon rebel since Aug 2011 and I'm still learning more things about it.
