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 plan to attend as many meeting as I can

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?

I have been using Photoshop CS5, Photomatix Pro 4.0 . I have been getting better with CS5 and have added the Topaz suite of products to CS5 to better adjust my pictures.

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

Scott Kelby Photoshop CS5 book (Just starting to read) hands on and asking people for help

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

I would conisder myself a above average amature with Photomatix Pro, as well as CS5

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

Everywhere

Introduction
