Photography is a long-time hobby and I enjoy editing almost as much as taking the pictures.

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. Sincerely! Cross my heart... :)

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?

Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CC at a somewhat advanced 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

Started with PS Elements and various procedural books. Moved up to Photoshop, joined for a few months and went through various courses by Deke McClelland and Chris Orwig. Now it's mostly YouTube and some tutorial websites like RetouchPro.

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

My main focus has been enhancing landscape images. I also do quite a bit with portrait retouching.

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

I'd like to become more creative/artistic, and even abstract in my photography and editing.

    Steve, you got another home page photo chosen, this time for January. Love how the color pops. Very picture postcard like.

    Village Falls On A Winter Morning is very nice. Did you try a b&w conversion just to see what it looks like?
