    What editing software do you use? Photoshop CS3. I have lightroom too but don't use it.

    How long have you been interested in Photography? Since just before Kacey's birth.

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? Not sure I really have one as I try to dabble a bit. You never know when you might find something you like. Kids this week. Macro next. Stock all the time.

    What/who inspires you? The kids do without a doubt. I love that I can get decent shots of them w/o taking them to someone else.

    Any favourite tip/trick you'd like to share: Get your hubby 'into' photography too. Guys tend to be gadget heads. Hubby buys the gear then I get to use it!

    Anything else you'd like to say? Thanks to our mods for stepping up and keeping this board going. Of the three boards I visit here on pg.org THIS one is the most active!

    What camera do you have? Do you like it?: Canon XSi; no. I hate it. The noise is ridiculously horrible! I really feel that I have outgrown it anyway. Hopefully I will only have to deal with it for about 2 more months!

    What editing software do you use? Photoshop CS4 and Lightroom 2

    How long have you been interested in Photography? about 3 years but only really actively pursuing it for about 1.5 years

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? portraits; soft, romantic, candid, sometimes vintagey

    What/who inspires you? http://www.flickr.com/photos/punkinmom/ and http://www.flickr.com/photos/solarisstudios/ are the most recent

    Any favourite tip/trick you'd like to share: A simple eye pop can seriously enhance a photo. And, I firmly believe catchlights can either make or break a photo.

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share? I'm cheating because I can't decide between this storyboard and another photo, so I am posting both.

    I am saving up for my 5D Mark II and can not wait to have it in my hands!!!
