“ This was my first experience with this meetup group and was disappointing as vast majority of the signees including the organizer didn't bother showing up or letting others know. Only 3 of us, all newbies to this group, showed up. Also, I am confused about this and the Montgomery County Photography group having the same meetups but separate meetup groups. Another annoying thing is that the announced meetups never have the location listed and one has to search through the groups' discussions to find the location. ”

Everyone is friendly and welcoming, and there is a wide range of folks, from photo newbies to experienced shooters, and from amateurs to pros. Best of all, this is a whole room of people who will not get bored talking about pixels, film speeds, Photoshop, shutter speeds, f-stops, lenses, bodies, formats, the works! You can satisfy all your photo geek jonesing without boring your significant other, family members, friends, and co-workers to tears! And Ken is a friendly, cool, reliable organizer. If you've been bitten by the shutter bug, my deepest condolences. Now join this group and admit your addiction like the rest of us! ”
