Thread: Hello from Upstate New York

  1. #1

    Talking Hello from Upstate New York

    Hi y'all! I've been doing digital scrapping for about a year, but I'm always looking for ways to improve my techniques. I live in beautiful Upstate New York, near Albany in the cradle between the Catskills, Adirondack and Green mountains and am originally from Wisconsin.

    I bought a digital SLR (Canon EOS Rebel xsi) last year and am loving it! I also have a little Panasonic Lumix that is my constant companion. My software is Adobe Photoshop PSE 6 and I work on a Mac.

    I don't have any kids, but I have 2 adorable boys who keep me company - my kitties Napoleon and Pharaoh. They are not the most willing of models, but they show up often in my photos and pages!

    I also scrap traditionally, but lately I've been doing more photo books, so am eager to learn more.

    Welcome. You have found the most welcoming, helpful place on the web!

  4. Hello and welcome! Thanks for introducing yourself! Enjoy exploring all the DD site has to offer and be sure to ask questions. It's a very eager to help community here!

    I wonder if it is as snowy and cold in upstate NY as it is here in Minnesota?

    I used to live in the Catskills, twice. In 6th grade, moved, came back near the end of 7th and move out of state again near the end of 8th. Lived in Windham and Cornwallville (just down the road from Point Lookout).
