I am just past the beginner phase. I know my way around my cameras and have an understanding of composition. I just can't seem to regularly get the shot I see.
I work Saturday and have Sunday & Monday off. The venue, education and networking need to be available when I can participate.
Depending on the output quality required, I use iPhoto, Corel AfterShot Pro, Fotor, Photoshop CS6, Lightroom3, Nikon's View NX2, or Gimp. I have a few plug-ins for CS6 and Pixlr-o-matic which adds specular highlights.
Let me call it outdoor photography. It includes but is not limited to: Floral, Landscape, Sunrise/Sunset, Wildlife, Buildings and other structures, Night sky and Candid people photos.
I wish to become a very good photographer. I have much to learn.
While it took 6 weeks to have this meet up due to weather and other events, my first outing with this group was very impressive. I hope to go out with them again.
