hi there. I am a long time Nikon user. I once had a fairly successful portrait business and loved it. However, I was forced to close it all up during a bitter divorce and just gave up after that. I sold all of my studio equipment but kept my camera and lenses just in case I wanted to get back into the game. I have a D700, which is probably an antique by now, along with a variety of Nikon portrait lenses. Some prime and some prime and some telephoto.
In the last couple years of my life has been quite trying, I lost my long term boyfriend to liver failure, lost my 18 year old to suicide, moved back home to Florida and away from family and friends of the last 25 years, started a new job and had the incredible opportunity to become reacquainted with my first high school crush only to have him walk away after 8 months together. After all of this upheaval, I need something to bring my back to myself and the joy I used to find in the beauty all around me. So I am dusting off my camera and lenses in hopes of finding the beauty in life again. This time, not for a career but just for myself. So I am setting my focus on nature and landscapes rather than portraits.
Anyway, I wanted to join the forum (or rather re-join since I am certain I had an account here when I was in business) to get familiar with all of the things I have missed in the last almost 15 years!
One of the things I am uncertain of now is post processing. In the past I had Photoshop and Lightroom to process all of my work. It looks as if these are all done online now rather that having to actual program on your computer, is that correct? I no longer have a great workhorse of a computer, sold that as well, I just have a simple laptop because I really rarely use it for anything anymore. So what is the going setup that most use for post processing?
