Tell us about your level of experience.

Photographically speaking, I started shooting in a serious way just in the past two years. I upgraded to a Nikon D7000 and a kit[masked]mm kit lens back in March, 2011 from my old Sony DSC-828, which I had for several years (and barely knew how to use in retrospect). I've recently upgraded to the Nikon D800 and FX lenses. I am constantly trying to expand my horizons for photos, which means I take some pretty lousy shots sometimes. Every once in awhile I switch back to my bread and butter (landscapes) to keep my self-esteeem intact... Of late, I have been experimenting with long exposures, portraits, smoke, reflections, depth of field, composites, texture-blending and other wild concepts.

What types of events or classes would you like to see us provide for the group?

Portraits, composition, photo walks, discussions, gatherings, contests

What type of photography do you prefer (scenic, people/portraiture, artistic, documentary, macro (close-up), etc.?

Scenic, people, macro
