To further my interest in photography and get out more to do it. Also to learn and to teach.

Are you a Professional, Semi-Pro, Amateur, or Beginning photographer?

Amature, only because I don't this for money. I want it to be fun and money gets in the way.

What are you looking to contribute and or learn from the group?

To help those new to photography learn and practice the basic. To learn from others to further my own creative vision.

How many years shooting (All mediums - film, and digital)?

    Hi Jim,
    Your words from the class Saturday stay with me in learning. I took a picture at Bush Park last Sunday and came home and cropped it to make it the way I wanted. It reminded me of your comment to know what you wanted from the picture. So now I'm going to pay more attention to what I see and what I want to see & use the right lens also to help zoom in on things when I need to. Thank you for all the information that is still coming to me.

    Thank you for the class today. This concept has been explained to me so many times, and is seems to be difficult for me to grasp, but after the class today, I do believe I am beginning to understand it better. I'm embrassing your concept of full manual for awhile and I did go out in my yard today and worked on different settings and it was fun and I could see the results and further understand the relationship between aperture, shutter speed & ISO. I will keep practicing.

    Hi Jim, Members have mentioned a good book about Exposure that is in our library. I looked and could not locate it. Maybe we could connect at wed. meeting and talk about which book they are talking about.Thanks, Janeen
