Introduction

Hobbyist photographer. Shoot almost daily with both Sony and phone. Favorite photo subjects are nature, travel, and friends and family. Homeschooling mama.

What first interested you about photography?

Years ago, I liked taking pictures to remember special events. Now, I attempt to capture moments, moods, relationships, nature - really anything that catches my eye.

What kind of meetups would you be interested in?

I would like to go to new places and take pictures together. I'd also like any opportunities to learn and share.

What kind of camera equipment do you currently use?

About half my photos are with my Sony A7ii, half with my iPhone.

Do you consider yourself a professional, amateur or somewhere in between?

I'm serious hobbyist. I would be ok with it if my photos make me some money in the future, but am not seriously pursuing business at this time, just trying to grow my skills.

What do you want to learn from the group?

I'm looking to spend time with people who enjoy photography and see it as more than "just taking pictures." I'm practicing manual mode and would like to be able to ask questions as I work on it.
