What do you hope to gain from this group?

Always looking for opportunities to photograph with other people. To learn from them and sometimes even help others to enjoy photography even more.

What are your main areas of interest in photography?

I enjoy all aspects of photography but I really enjoy photographing my travels. I'm always trying to capture that special memory. With digital photography I am also trying to improve my Photoshop skills to make my memories look their best.

How much time do you have? What is your availability?

Since I am retired, I have lots of time on my hands. I enjoy traveling, so I am available whenever I'm not away from home. I have traveled to India 7 times and have lead photo tours with my friend. Our next tours for 2013 can be seen at

How would you describe your experience level in photography?

In the past, I photographed several weddings and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and other social events. I decided to just be retired after moving to FL. I compete at the advanced level in the three camera clubs that I am active in. I am also a member of the Professional Photographers of SWFL, FPP, and PPA and have competed in local, state and regional competitions in these organizations.


I was always taking pictures but I got my first SLR in 1987 when Minolta introduced the first auto focus SLR. About a year later I participated in a weekend photo workshop with the NIH Camera Club and that's when I started making Photographs.

What Sharon A. is saying about this Meetup Group

I think it is a wonderful opportunity to learn and increase my photographic skills. I look forward to future classes. Thank you for making it possible.
