Retiring to Florida in 2013 from the corporate world gave me the time to devote to photography and hone my camera skills. I got my first DSLR in 2010, a Canon 60D which remains my primary camera. My husband and I have travelled more extensively since retirement, and my photos reflect my interest in travel and the culture and peoples of the places we have visited. We also spend our summers in beautiful Canada and this also gives me the opportunity to add some variety to my burgeoning collection of images.

Although I am semi-proficient in Photoshop, I have recently started using Lightroom more heavily in my workflow due to its ease. I particularly like Lightroom for its organizational structure which had has been a tremendous aid in finding my images. I occasionally use plug-ins when I want to introduce a "painterly" effect to my photos.

I belong to two camera clubs in Florida, and these groups of avid photographers have greatly helped in upping the ante of the photos I submit at competition. I continue to learn a lot of techniques through the internet and from reading photo magazines. I hope to benefit from the opinions and experience of others of this study group and look forward to enjoying the images of the group.
