Welcome to Meet Up.
I am the moderator for the group. Just a note to let you know this group is made of amateurs, semi-pros and pros and advanced amateurs. Each month we have an agenda for the meeting, and an assignment for the following meeting. We are also taking suggestions for photo safaris in the local Baltimore-Washi ngton area for weekends and are looking for suggestions for a photo scavenger hunt with sites near the Inner Harbor.
Thanks for the greeting, Kate; I look forward to seeing you at future meet-ups. Oh, and I just took a look at your PhotoBlog - Several of your pics from HonFest are of the same subjects I photographed, from roughly the same perspective, with the people having the same expressions on their faces. Talk about great minds thinking (photographing) alike! I ought to put a few of mine online, so you can see for yourself. (Yet another item on my ever-growing"To Do" list.)
Kate, it was great meeting you last night. I also have not shot in Raw and was happy someone else is like me. I was shocked at how everyone appeared to know 100 times more then me about photography. I use my lessons in Architcture School on composition and do not worry about all that white balance stuff. I took one Photography class in college which was B&W and was only based on the final product. I guess I will need to learn the Photography part next.
Hi Kate, It was nice meeting you too! It was a lot of fun. I look forward to our next get together.
