  1. Hello all! I've been posting lately, but thought I would finally introduce myself. My name is Kris and I am from Kansas City. About 20 years ago I was into B&W film photography (in high school). I loved it. About 7 or 8 years ago I bought my dSLR to have a "nice" camera. I had intentions of "getting into it" back when I purchased the camera, but life always found a way to get in the way. Fast forward to November 11th my wife and I had our baby girl. I got six weeks off work in paternity leave. I spent the entire time my baby was sleeping by reading and learning everything I could about Lightroom (I know - I see the light now... ACR all the way! You got me.). Eventually, I was referred to Damien's courses after posting a photo in a photography facebook group (thank you Sue Morris if you are reading this!). So far my experience has been nothing short of amazing. I've grown so much in the past two'ish months and I know after I take levels (and eventually the skin and the sharpening classes) I will have a great foundation. So thank you first to Sue for guiding me here. And, second, thank you Damien for such thorough classes and honest feedback! Lastly, I am a huge Royals (major league baseball) and Jayhawks (college basketball / football) fan. Hence my username. -Kris
