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 look forward to the getting together.

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 used various photo editors including Gimp and Photoshop CS5 I find Gimp as a very powerful editor, which I have achieved excellent results. Photoshop is incredible, which it must be given its enormous cost. I am far from a beginner and way short of an expert, maybe almost advanced, however I have a lot to learn.

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

Internet, videos and hands on, and books.

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 focus on making a good picture better and once in a wile on trying to make a bad picture good. To do this I consistently use features that are more fundamental to imaging and avoid using 'special effects'

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

Insight into efficient methods to edit pictures. Exploring all of Photoshop’s capabilities.
