Over 20 years.
Intermediate, but expert in the review/critique of photographs. I have strong Photoshop skills and have put in many long hours helping students manipulate and retouch their photos (as well as my own). I've taught photo composition/concept and related classes for many years as well as self-promotion for photographers. I'm interested in sharing ideas, locations, and just the love of photography -- esp. shooting outdoors. My weakness is equipment, esp. lighting equipment -- but I have a very good understanding of light, light ratios and lighting in general.
Went looking online for photography groups in Atlanta. Wasn't sure I wanted PPA. This sounds good to me.
I recently relocated to Atlanta from MA where I taught & headed up the Design/Imaging Arts Dept. at Hallmark Institute of Photography. I viewed thousands of images/week, but had no time to shoot. I am a designer that is now doing more photography.
I was very impressed with the professionalism, the friendliness and the care that everyone expressed while reviewing the photographs.
