My favorite subjects to shoot...

People, places, pets. I like editorial photography and environmental photography - i.e., for the moment, studio photography is not on my list. But who knows? That may change!

My equipment includes...

Nikon D5000. Just two lenses, 18mm-50mm zoom, and 55m-200mm zoom. I'm gradually adding to equipment as I learn what I really need.

Places I would like to go with the group to take photographs...

Sports events (triathalon?), wildlife settings, winery

My photographic style could be described as...

Editorial. I'm most interested in getting the picture right when I take - though I do appreciate the benefits of HDR and other optimization, I am more interested in optimization than creative reconstruction.

I consider myself to be a beginner, intermediate, serious amateur, pro...

Intermediate, working towards a return to publishable editorial photography.


Years ago I was a freelance writer and often shot the pix for my stories . . . . then I took a career detour for a couple of decades. I'm returning to my passion for photography, and enthusiastic about learning about the digital world.

What Michele M. is saying about this Meetup Group

An excellent experience that is really helping me evolve as a photographer. Participants are all friendly helpful, and there was great team spirit. I like it!
