    Hello, I don't quite know what to say. My name is Dana. I basically grew up with a camera in my hands. The hobby turned into a career in the mid 90s. So now I'm a professional photographer. Which kind is kind of weird. If someone had told me I would do that for a profession when I was young I probably would have laughed.

    I use only Nikon equipment but believe that is a personal choice. What matters if the equipment works well for the person using it. I have both film and digital cameras. I also have an underwater digital camera.

    I'm from the Pacific Northwest and still live here. It's a great place for photography.

    I've been using Photoshop since it's first version in the 80s so I don't really know much about other graphics programs. I use Nikon View and Transfer to transfer shots from the card to my computer. I like the Nikon View contact sheet and use only that for a contact sheet.

    I'm a huge fan of the Nik Collection of plugins. If you don't have it, I highly recommend it. It's free. You'll love it especially the Viveza plugin.

    I am looking forward to having some good conversations about photography and hopefully learn new things.

    Got my first SLR in the mid 80's, an Olympus OM30 (still have it but the winder is broken). Got into digital in the early 2000's

    Hello CherylL.

    I was first introduced to the Nik plug ins around 2013. I was invited to a presentation of it here in my area. A banquet room full of photographers and graphic artists at the Hilton here. When Viveza was demonstrated the whole room gasped. I heard some say "finally, someone wrote the program."

    They sold it there at the presentation. All of it was separate. I bought the Viveza. I can still get it free. Only because I got back that far with the program and paid full price for it.

    I'm sad to hear it's not free anymore. It is worth every penny though.

    I got my first SLR in the 70s. A Nikon EM. I still have it. I've always used Nikon equipment so I now have a bit of a collection of cameras.

    I can't sell or give away any of my equipment.

    I bought my first digital at the end of 2004.
