I love just about everything about photography! I'm interested in continuing to develop my skills, meeting up with other photographers, looking at images, talking about our favorite photographers, and so on.
I had to take a few years off from photography, and when I began my little hiatus, digital photography was still for "amateurs" and film for "serious photographers." Obviously, a lot has changed! My photo skills are far in advance of my digital darkroom skills, and although I have sold photos, my photography doesn't pay the bills. It feeds my creativity and encourages me to actually see the world around me.
I like all kinds of photography, but I do very little landscape photography. I am most drawn to documentary/photojournalism, street photography, and portraiture.
I bought a Nikon DSLR in the summer of 2011, my first. I sold my last film camera a while back, and I can't say that I really miss it.
Digital workflow and darkroom skills, and studio lighting, most of all. Also, having the opportunity to meet other photographers, critique images, and see what other folks are up to is a big draw.
If I say that I'll be there, I'll be there.
"I also have a 365 project, which has evolved into a photo diary with occasional posts, here: http://kasprouse.tumblr.com/"

Hello Kas, I appreciate the welcome! As I posted to Christial, I am looking forward to the Meetups. Unfortunately, I cannot attend the one tomorrow (10/17) as I need to be at my son's high school homecoming event. But, I will have my camera and will be trying to figure out how to get good fire shots. See you soon! Ernie
Thanks for the welcome Kas!
