    What editing software do you use?CS4

    How long have you been interested in Photography?What year is it now? LOL It's been a family interest since before I was born - my grandfather, uncles & mother, myself, my cousin...

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style?Children, Family, Couples...I love to try to capture relationships. I love photos that are not always technically correct but that capture the moment in a non-snap-shotty way. That's what my goal is though I don't think I always nail that at this point. I love natural light but would like to try studio one day... I think I have a style, I just don't know what it's called

    Any favourite tip/trick you'd like to share:Hmm...not one that I can think of...

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share?A self portrait taken with my 50mm at arms length...it wasn't easy LOL I have a tripod and remote now and need to try again using those...this is SOOC, I couldn't be bothered to edit a pic of me. LOL

    What camera do you have? Do you like it?: Just upgraded from a point and shoot to a Canon Rebel T1. I have no idea what I'm doing yet. I guess I like it, but mostly it still intimidates me.

    What editing software do you use? Photoshop scares me (lol, I'm starting to notice a trend of fear here), but I'd love to learn it some day. I've used their lite version (forgot what it's called) a few times.

    How long have you been interested in Photography? I've loved photographs all my life and as a preteen/teen took MANY MANY pictures with a crappy 35mm camera. After the birth of my daughter I started taking lots of pictures again and started feeling like I wasn't quite capturing all the moments I wanted, nor how I wanted them. So now I am trying to get into it more hardcore.

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? I like portraits, both candid and posed shots of people. When I was younger, I liked landscapes better, but not as much now.

    What/who inspires you? My wonderful daughter

    Any favourite tip/trick you'd like to share: Haha not yet, I need a ton of tricks!

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share?
    This is a cute pic because I have loved kissing her feet since day 1 and I love how the foot came out:


    Anything else?: Can't wait to figure out how to use my new toy!

    I used to lurk here all the time, and then my pg.org time dwindled to none when I fought for what seemed like forever to get a log in error corrected-until I finally wanted to be able to post again. I think I only posted once even back then. ....

    What camera do you have? Do you like it?: I have a Canon XT. I loved it for awhile, but having played with my bf camera, and had some other repeated disagreements-I cannot WAIT to upgrade! I plan to get a 7D when I return from Iraq next January. Until than I will borrow my friends Nikon D40 when I need to scratch the shutterbug itch

    What editing software do you use? CS4, updated from elements 7 a few mo ago and still in the middle of a steep learning curve of what it and i can do!

    How long have you been interested in Photography? As long as I can remember. I took photography my senior year with a borrowed SLR, getting to develop our own film (Awesome!). I purchased a DSLR (Rebel G) back in 2000 but sold it within a year and didn't get to play much. I purchased my XT black fri of 07 but did not REALLY start playing again and trying manual etc etc until about a year ago.

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? I Love macro and like to play with reflections (havent done much here yet), I enjoy babies, couples and seniors and seeing what "odd" stuff we can make work!

    What/who inspires you? Everybody here and DPS and my friend Aaron-he's awesome and light years ahead of me!

    Any favourite tip/trick you'd like to share: Try try again!

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share? I don't have any online yet, will have to add later

    Anything else you'd like to say? Looking forward to participating more in this board

    Location: PA

    What camera do you have? Do you like it?:
    1) Canon Rebel 500D/T1i, just received it for Christmas, LOVE it so far, still learning everything though; still can't believe I finally own a Canon, let alone a DSLR!
    2) Fuji Finepix S5100, got in 2005, love it and even though I do great with it I know it has lots more capability too.

    What editing software do you use? Paint Shop Pro 8.1 which I know very well and love, also have Lightroom trial version, need more experience with it....also used to have a Photoshop Elements trial version which I loved for making graphics, didn't try it with photos very much at the time. Need to eventually buy Photoshop.

    How long have you been interested in Photography? have been forever. but have taken it more seriously photographing nature etc. for about 10 years.

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? Right now I do mostly nature/landscape/outdoorsy/macro photography, but I also dabble in Eva portraiture during the holidays when photographing Eva studio-style, I prefer to use interesting backgrounds and colors, and a prop or two, and then play around with contrast etc. after uploading. I like to see interesting color and natural light or lower light rather than just white white white bright bright. I'm a beginner but I've had a few "sessions" now that I have loved.

    What/who inspires you? Mother Nature is the true artist for sure. Eva inspires me too, and this forum does too!

    Any favourite tip/trick you'd like to share: I'm not there yet!

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share? I have lots of favorite photos, couldn't decide which was good enough to post. I don't have a good self-portrait other than snapshots other people have taken.

    Anything else you'd like to say? I'm learning a lot here and I hope to have something good to add in the near future.

    What camera do you have? Do you like it?:
    Rebel XSi. I've only had it for two days but I like it so far! For the past four years I have been using a Canon S2 IS.

    What editing software do you use?
    Well, let's just say I have Elements somewhere although I have had my new computer for 14 months and haven't yet bothered to install it on this computer! Photo editing bores me to tears... perhaps that's something I need to get over but my attitude is basically that if I don't like the way the picture came out, that's life, move on.

    How long have you been interested in Photography?
    Forever. In high school, back in the old film days I even developed my own pictures. I wanted an SLR back than and then a DSLR once they became affordable but FINALLY just got one this week.

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style?
    I hate anything that looks posed. So I know what I don't like but I don't know what exactly I LIKE...

    What/who inspires you?
    My kids. I want to capture every possible moment with them in pictures so I can remember when they are all grown up.

    Any favourite tip/trick you'd like to share:
    Don't forget to step out from behind the camera to be apart of what's going on. I have a bad habit of hiding behind the camera, always have!

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share?

    Anything else you'd like to say?
    I can almost guarantee that I will never post any pictures here! I like to lurk and read, but that's all. I'm a lurker on this board but I think lurkers who don't at least say "Hey I'm lurking here!" are creepy so I'm letting you all know I'm lurking, hahaha. If you want to find me, I'm always around the Sept/Oct 2007 boards!

    What Camera do you have? Do you like it?: I just bought the Canon Rebel Xsi, I love it more than a point and shoot, but obviously have ALOT to learn, I'll let you know once I know what I'm doing lol

    What editing software do you use? I haven't tried editing yet, but I do have Photoshop CS3 and Lightroom was recommended to me so I might get that

    How long have you been interested in Photography? I've always loved it, and took a course back in highschool with film SLR (long time ago lol) but got into cake decorating more so ended up concentrating on that, now I can take great pics of my cakes YAY

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? I love black and white and children, A good friend of mine took my maternity pics and pics of my son when he was 5 months, they were all black and white and BEAUTIFUL

    What/who inspires you? My son, since the second I saw that BFP he's been my whole world.

    Any favourite tip/trick you'd like to share: umm don't forget the lens cap??? lol I don't know enough yet to share anything of much use

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share? Nothing yet, I kind of like the one in my siggy right now but I see that changing fast

    Anything else you'd like to say? Yay I'm so glad to be here, what a great board and I'm sure I'll learn lots, I've found the support here to be incredible, especially from ladies who know sooo much and you're willing to share your expertise

    Might be kind of silly to do this now, but I guess I'll give it a go

    Location: North Carolina

    What camera do you have? Do you like it?: Canon T1i. Love it! I have been using it for a few months now (upgraded from the XT). Wishing now I had gone to the XXD series instead. But, I'm still VERY new to photography, so I'll keep this one for another year or so and then see where I am. Upgraded to 50D in May

    What editing software do you use? Photoshop Elements 8.0

    How long have you been interested in Photography? Always loved photography. My Dad was the photographer of the family. I have nothing but photography hanging on my walls. I thought it would be neat to be on the other end and start taking the pictures.

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? I LOVE child photography and nature photography. The two mixed? Amazing! I love nature and showing the beauty of it.

    What/who inspires you? Those people out there making a living with the art they love. I aspire to be like them, though I am deluding myself...it's nice to live in a deluded world sometimes

    Any favourite tip/trick you'd like to share: Check and double check your ISO before shooting. Don't forget that little IMPORTANT bit of the puzzle! Also, don't get discouraged just because you're not progressing and taking those 'professional' pictures. Just do what you enjoy and enjoy what you produce.

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share? ...

    Anything else you'd like to say? I'm new to photography and have tried to contribute to the board. I do like the fact that we have such a wide range of experience. Photography is just amazing and I love that we can capture those lost moments, no matter our skill level.

    New here but hope to become an active member thought I would start with an introduction.

    What camera do you have? Do you like it?: I only have a point and shoot, it is a Canon A2000 IS. It does well for what it is but would be happier with a SLR.

    What editing software do you use? Adobe Photoshop CS2 & Gimp

    How long have you been interested in Photography? I've been running around with a camera since I was a child, I would say about the age of 9.

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? I like candid pictures of people and animals, also like to take pictures of things in nature, would like to expand my subjects. Done a few shots of treats since I enjoy baking also.

    What/who inspires you? My kids are a huge inspiration, I often let a moment take me on a journey of photographic exploration.

    Any favourite tip/trick you'd like to share: Shoot lots, and work with all sorts of angles, digital photography has made it so much easier to just shoot away to get the perfect shot.

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share?
    Haven't edited this and it is a bit grainy, but I just love the expression on my DD's face, its a sort-of mischievous grin.


    Anything else you'd like to say?
    This seems like a great part of the forums, I hope to get to know you ladies and your photographs. I love seeing everyones pictures.
