    What camera do you have? Do you like it?
    Canon 60D, yes, love it. It's my first DSLR, just got it summer of 2012.

    What editing software do you use?
    GIMP, because it's free and we're on a tight budget.

    Do you have a photo blog/website or personal blog you'd like to share?
    http://www.redbubble.com/people/tracelle and https://www.facebook.com/TracyFriesenPhotography. I also sell greeting cards with my photos/designs at http://www.greetingcarduniverse.com/everydayexpressions

    How long have you been interested in Photography?
    Off and on for about 12 years, but seriously trying to learn how to take good pictures since January of 2011.

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? I'm most passionate about macro, but don't have a macro lens. I enjoy landscapes, but most desire at this point to learn to take good portraits of my kids and others.

    What/who inspires you? Lots of people... my brother is a great photographer (mostly street stuff), the ladies here, a few wonderful landscape photographers on RedBubble (particularly Ingz for macro, Arfan Habib for landscape, and Marcelle Raphael for portraits), Lisa Holloway.

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share? My favourite shot of my kids, because it showcases their personalities 100% perfectly.


    Anything else you'd like to say? I've learned a lot on this board and am grateful. I am a bit off-and-on right now, but usually participate regularly and benefit so much from that participation.

    What camera do you have? Do you like it? Canon T1i, yes very much. Also have my old Fuji S5100 which I always loved too before I got my DSLR.

    What editing software do you use? PSP X3 and Canon's raw editing software; also anything else available for minor touch ups/resizing on the go.

    Do you have a photo blog/website or personal blog you'd like to share? My FB hobby/sharing page is "Photography by Amy Taracido" and I also have a site at Wix but need to clean out files in order to update it since summer/fall.

    How long have you been interested in Photography? Since I was little. But I really got into it when I was given an old Canon film SLR back in 1997-ish (during college) and then bought a great lens for it and I first started doing macro back then.

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? nature and macro are my passions. I also love taking natural light photos of my daughter, especially outside in the "golden hour". I strive for simple and natural, but I love to bring out color. I cannot resist great colors. I love golden backlighting.

    What/who inspires you? Mother Nature, above all; and all the ladies here at this wonderful forum.

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share? I've always shared my favorites already, so I'll stick a selfie here I guess lol (except that Eva took this)...

    What camera do you have? Do you like it? Nikon d600. Wow, I don't know if photography suddenly clicked in my brain or if it's just the switch to full-frame, but I have no words to describe how much I love this camera. I had the d7000, and it's also good if you're looking for a Nikon.

    What editing software do you use? Photoshop Elements 11, but DH has CS6 if I can get on his lappy (hahaha, I just re-read this and see how it sounds. I meant his laptop)

    Do you have a photo blog/website or personal blog you'd like to share? My 365 Photography Challenge

    How long have you been interested in Photography? I remember when I was 11 I had a 110 that I loved. After that, I had one of those Kodak cameras that could take panoramic pics when I graduated high school. I decided to take the plunge into the world of DSLRs after my first son was a few months old in 2006 but didn't start really studying photography until 2008. It's been on and off the back burner since then.

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? I'm not sure if I have a style yet. I like lifestyle and love nature shots. I like true-to-life colors and contrasty b&ws.

    What/who inspires you? Life, anything that strikes me as beautiful or interesting...

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share? My most recent self portrait, last month Christmas2012

    Anything else you'd like to say?I hope this is a year of photographic growth for all of us

    What camera do you have? Do you like it? My main camera is a Nikon D3s and it is the dogs dangly bits!! I love it! I also have a Nikon D300 which is a trusted friend... however, if funds allowed this year, I would probably want to upgrade my second camera to another full frame.

    What editing software do you use? CS5 or LR3

    Do you have a photo blog/website or personal blog you'd like to share? Staffordshire Wedding & Portrait Photographer|KMS Photography

    How long have you been interested in Photography? Since I was 14 when I found a camera half way up a Taiwanese mountain!

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? I'll shoot almost anything but mostly portraits with the odd bit of wildlife. I'm now getting more into motography (mobile phone photography!). In terms of style, I've been told it's clean and relaxed

    What/who inspires you? People! I can be inspired by anyone

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share? Nowhere near close to being a great shot, but it's my boys so I love it!


    Anything else you'd like to say? I've been terrible at keeping in touch with my photography communities. 2013 is the year to try harder!

    What camera do you have? Do you like it? I have a Nikon D90. I love it. I would love to upgrade, but that will wait. I am very pleased with my camera.

    What editing software do you use? I use Photoshop Elements 9

    Do you have a photo blog/website or personal blog you'd like to share? Personal blog- Where The Road Begins II Blog Site- qrsphotography

    How long have you been interested in Photography? Since I can remember. My dad had a decent film camera and I was always enamored with it.

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? We live in a rural area, so I tend to go for a more country style. Simple, nothing too fancy. I don't use many props. I shoot family, children, engagements, and seniors- my fave!

    Anything else you'd like to say? Keep practicing. Do NOT give up. I lurked here FOREVER. I mastered my point and shoot and moved to a DSLR and haven't turned back. I am still learning and always will be!

    Name (screen and/or actual): Jillie Bean/Jill
    Age: 33
    DH/SO: Tyler
    Children: Cooper 2 (almost 3 yikes!)
    Location: Northern Colorado

    What camera do you have? Do you like it? I have a Rebel XS right now. I got it when I was pregnant with Cooper and really had no idea what I wanted/what to look for. (Wishing I would have know y'all then...) . I don't dislike it but I don't love it. I feel like it very limiting for what I want to do and I also feel like I have a very hard time getting a super sharp image with it. Hoping to upgrade soon (after a new dryer, tires, car repair....)

    What editing software do you use? I have played around with LR a little and love it, waiting for some room in the budget to get the full version. Right now, I pretty much edit everything on my iPad using Photogene. I like it but I don't feel like the color is true on there right now. I love the ease of being able to edit on the iPad right now too.

    Do you have a photo blog/website or personal blog you'd like to share? jilliebeanphoto.blogspot.com It isn't anything super fun, just started it to log my 52 weeker that I started on here for this year.

    How long have you been interested in Photography? I have been interested in beautiful pictures since probably junior high. I was under the common impression that when I got my DSLR I would magically become a great photographer... I have really been striving to learn more and make more shots count for the past year or so.

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? I don't know if I really can say I have a style per se. I really enjoy lifestyle photography I guess you would say, photos that capture a mood/moment are what I strive for.

    What/who inspires you? Wow, I don't really know any famous photographers or anything. I would have to say you ladies on here, a couple of moms from my BB.

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share? Not a great shot, but my favorite guys

    Anything else you'd like to say? I am excited to jump into the world of CC with you ladies. I know it is really only way for me to GROW and become better. Love being a part of this community!
