I got into photography back in the 1990s, and was using a 35mm Nikon N90s, but dropped out in the early 2000s. I got back in to photography in 2018 when I bought my first digital camera, a Nikon D7500, and a year later a full-frame Nikon D850. I started post-processing my shots at the beginning of 2021 with Nikon’s Capture NX-D program. Then in April 2021, I started using Lightroom Classic . . . what a big improvement this was. My enjoyment with photography improved immensely using Lightroom. I’m learning something new every day I use Lightroom, but I still have quite a bit more to learn. Because of my age, I’m no longer able to go on back packing trips, which prevents me from getting some great shots in the mountains, etc.
