This is an image taken in Oceanside, CA yesterday at my first ever in-person meet up (not to be confused with my 2-day workshops).  We had about a group of 10 and we had an awesome time.  Whether you're beginning or have been doing this for decades, a meet up would benefit you.  Whether I'm helping a beginner make the leap and start shooting manual, or helping a pro fine tune his white balance, everyone learned something new.  I can't wait to see you all at my next one in Los Angeles this coming Wednesday night!
