    Default Photography anyone?

    I'm looking for other mom's who share a love of photography and want to start a local group (online perhaps? and possibly to get together once in a while) to share pictures, ideas, tips etc.? Photography for me is a hobby and I'd love to take it further... although I know I have a lot to learn. I also have Photoshop and a number of other programs I'm in the process of learning to use and I'd love some tips or others to learn/share ideas with. Any London moms interested??

    Oh and I guess I should introduce myself... I'm Tracy, mom to two little girls ages 5 and 6. I live on the North(ish) west side of London and I'm 34.... SAHM.... An OT (Occupational Therapist) in another life but for now home with my girls.

    Let me know here or pm me if you're interested

    I would be SSSOOO interested! I have other friends (local) too that would be interested, but are not mommies so have had nowhere to turn to. (other than mom's message boards, they are hard to find)

    I am on a few online message boards for photography, but they are mostly American. A local spot would be so helpful to me I know!

    Oh, and I am Laura, mom to Haley (3.5) and Paige (1). I go back to work on Jan 7th as a Child and Youth Worker. I have been doing photography "seriously" since Haley was a baby and am considering making this more of a business now but have no idea how to go about it.

    Look forward to chatting!

    If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn't need to lug around a camera.

    Yeah. This would be just my thing! I have somewhat of an addiction to photography that started when my son was born. I would love to get together to share photos, tips, ideas and such.

    I work two days a week, as a nurse, so different shifts/days but it leaves me free many days. I have a 5yo son and a 2.5 yo daughter.

    Look forward to hearing more about meeting.

    Yaaayy! So glad some of you are interested! Oh and just to clarify this is definitely a hobby for me... I am learning and a beginner so by no means great at this. Photography is a huge love of mine but I have so much to learn..... so I am sure we will all learn from each other.

    I am saving for a new camera so for now just shooting with an old Olympus digital....

    I'll set up an online group so we can introduce ourselves, share pics etc... and hopefully plan a day to meet up It may take me a day or two as I still have one more X-mas get together to bake for and go to tomorrow.

    This should be fun!

    I'd be interested too! Like everyone else, I started really getting into photography when DD was born. I have accumulated quite a lot of photography equipment since she's been born too! It's just a hobby right now but maybe, hopefully, one day something more!

    Keep me posted with details of the group! Thanks

    Will do!

    Honestly... an online thing would be good for me. I would be able to get together once in awhile though I'm sure. But I will be back to work full time days as of Jan. I work in a school so I have all the breaks and summer off though!

    I also have Photoshop CS and that has become another obsession of mine! I would love to talk to more locals about it too!

    So, Tracy, are you thinking of setting up a board kind of like this? If so, I may know where to do one for free PM me if you need any help... I just am clueless about these things.

    OK so what is this photoshop everyone is talking about??? I know it is a program... but what is special about it?? What makes it different from say Picassa ... or your run of the mill HP or Kodak programs??

    See how dumb I am at all this yet??

    So should i be investing in Photoshop soon??? What kind of $$ should I expect to pay for it??
