What would you like to gain from the group?

Knowledge, skills, friendship, the usual! Specifically, to learn Photoshop basics, be more confident shooting my fun toy film camera (Lomo, Diana F+), and possibly glean some info about how to make a career out of taking photos.

What are your favorite subjects?

Animals, children (not babies, though!), insects & other macro, food. Pretty decent with landscapes as well.

How long have you been into photography?

Since high school, maybe 10th grade, when my dad gave me his old Minolta. I was hooked

What equipment do you shoot with?

Still a bit of film (though the Minolta needs a cleaning...), just got a Lomo camera, and the trusty ol' Nikon D40X I began digital on. Nothing fancy.

Where did you hear about us?

I've been on meetup for a while, had some groups in Korea, and just looked up Photography to see what was there.


I have a Biology degree from the UMN, then taught EFL for 5 years in Korea. I'm back in MN now, looking to develop my skills and meet other photographers in my area. I'm highly considering going back to school for an MFA.
