I am a retired and live in Narre Warren South. I developed an interest in photography and purchased a Nikon D7000. When I heard about the Casey Camera Club being formed I was excited to have the opportunity to meet like-minded people who were beginners like me. Since joining I have learned a lot but still have a long way to go. I look forward to the time when I take shots that may be good enough to submit into a competition. There are many field trips and workshops that have been planned by the club that should equip me to do this. So despite the steep learning curve and the frustration of not being able to remember everything I am thoroughly enjoying the journey.
