RPEG's focus is on photography and photo editing, but Meetup's focus is on getting people together face-to-face. Are you able to attend at least some of our meetings and tutorials? Do you sincerely plan to do so? If so, please continue!

Yes, I do. I enjoy our workshops where we shoot then edit afterward. They're fun and interesting.

Experience isn't required for membership, but we do ask that your main reason for joining be an interest in cameras and photo-editing. What editor (if any) are you using? If Photoshop, which version? Beginner, intermediate, advanced or expert?

Photoshop CC, Elements 11, Adobe Bridge, Dynamic Photo HDR, Adobe Camera RAW, Canon Digital Photo Professional (I don't need no stinkin' Lightroom!). I'm an intermediate user.

If experienced with your program(s), how did you LEARN the program along the way? Books? Videos? In a formal school curriculum? On the job? Please be as specific as possible

Like most men I don't read instructions so I've mostly learned by doing. Sometimes I'll read the help section of a program, or if really desperate will go online and find a tutorial. As a result of this learning method I'm deficient in many areas!

If experienced, what areas of photo editing do you consider your strengths? Portrait touchups? Compositing? HDR Imaging? Web? Artistic? Photo Repair? Other? Please specify.

My latest interests are time lapse and full motion video.

What are the areas where you'd especially like to increase your skills?

Video editing.

Introduction

I've lived in upstate New York for 8 years after moving here from Las Vegas. I'm a partner at Image City Photography Gallery and I have my own gallery in the lobby of the Pittsford Flour Mill in Schoen Place in Pittsford.

What Carl C. is saying about this Meetup Group

We have a nice thing going here. Steve is an excellent organizer and communicator.
