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 am interseted in doing so.

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 use windows gallery and photo elements at the moment.

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

School of hard knocks. I believe my experiance as a Color TV repairman helps me with editig as the color setup and that of editing for tint and color balance and intensity is parallel in nature.

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 actually like touchups and photo repair of old bictures.

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

Let's see where it takes me. I have a mind for learning.


I am a retired from RTC/Frontier after 40 years. My background is diverse as I went to Edison Tech High School. I had 6 weeks of training in photography at that time and have been taking pictures since. I took up serious digital after I retired.

What Brad A. is saying about this Meetup Group

Back to the photo thing. Glad to be free from work to do this. I enjoy photography alot. Did I mention that I LOVE my Canon T4i? As an updsate, i submitted 3 photos to Viewbug and got 6 honorable mentions Brilliant Photo, Superb Contrast and Composition. It means alot to me to have all three photos marked as Judges favorites. I think this is pretty cool. It is nice to have others enjoy my photos as much as I do.
