Do you have your own Studio or Portable Light Kit?

I don't, yet. Thinking I'll get the HiViz high speed triggers and an external flash.

Do you shoot film, digital, or both? Which do you prefer?

I went digital a few years ago and never looked back. I usually use LightZone to process my photos. But I'm beginning to use Photoshop and Lightroom.

What would you consider your photographic experience level?

I'm a Lake Woebegone above average experienced amateur photographer.

What are your primary photographic interests?

Outdoors, some macro and far telephoto. I'd like to get set up for photomicroscopy and high speed photography. Stop action animation looks like fun, too.

What type of Camera do you primarily use?

A Canon 450D, sometimes with a telescope. But I almost always carry a pocket camera (Canon SD300 or SD4000) when I'm out and about and not thinking about photography.


Hi. I live downtown and love to take pictures. Recently retired from surveying and software development. I want to take some really good photos and this is the group to help me learn how and have fun at the same time.

What John R. is saying about this Meetup Group

This group is generous w/ their knowledge. For an amateur like me, there's a wealth of experience and ideas w/in the group for me to benefit from. For the experienced and professional there's a good deal of cooperation and cross-pollination. If you're interested in mounting a photo expedition, this is an eager group.
