Enjoying seeing and discussing other peoples images. Getting help with my own images. Learning more about histograms and do realize I need to consider post production techniques. I purchased Elements 9 quite a few months ago but have done very little with it. Just upgraded from Nikon's D80 to their D7000 and have a great deal to learn about it. I really enjoy encouraging other people to get more involved in photography.
If I recall correctly, my first camera was a Kodak Brownie when I was about 10 years old. One of my favorite cameras was a German Super Paxette with screw type interchangable lens. Unfortunately the shudder release is stuck or I might still use it for slides on occasion. Other cameras include a Pentax and a Konica before my wife treated me to a Nikon N90 after which I also got a D40 then a D80 and recently a D7000 which I am a long way from taking advantage of all its features.
Except for taking pictures of our family vacations the vast majority of my images are colorlandscape scenes. A friend (michaeldfreyimages.com) is trying hard to get me interested in black and white with only minimum success.
Recently retired after working 20 years for the Candian Tourism Commission. Interested in photography since the age of 12 but let work get in the way. Switched to digital 2 years ago. Greatly prefer spending time with my camera not post production.
That was my first meeting and I was tremendously impressed. Thanks again for organizing such a marvelous speaker. I look forward to being an active member.
