Just what I have been looking for.
I live in Irvine.
I have an A-100 and A-700 and have been using my Sony 18-250 lense almost exclusively.
A77, 28-75mm f/2.8, 18-250mm f/3.5, 70-300mm f/4.5, 16-50mm f/2.8

I also live in Irvine, and go down to San Diego quite often to visit family. Let me know if you guys end up scheduling a meet. I can't make any promises -- work takes up a lot of time, ,I have a 16-month old, AND my wife and I are expecting our second child in June.

@Touchdown - I know what you mean about the wife getting impatient if you're taking too long to get your shot. But we did end up going to the wild animal park, and it was pretty fun. See the post in open views here.

I'm in the SFV and would be interested in some sort of photo outing.

If anyone's got a list going, put me on it!

Can anyone propose an agenda or location? If so, I think we'd just need to figure out a date...?

I'm not sure where in LA to shoot. I know there are a few parks and such (e.g., the peacock park in huntington park), but I've never really explored LA for shooting sites...

The Ghetty is nice but might be a bit small for a whole day of shooting.
The Huntington Gardens in San Marino is nice and big.

Lets keep this dream alive!

I live in Anaheim but will drive within 2hrs to meet another Alpha shooter. Maybe we can start a by picking a date that will work for most of us. Then based on the attendants decide on place/subjects. I'd be happy to help organize this please PM with your contact info and pick primary and secondary dates that you are available to attend. Also it would be good to know what city you live in so we can get an idea where everybody is coming from.

Here are few weekends coming up in September and October

Sep 5&6
Sep 12&13
Sep 19&20
Sep 26&27

Oct 3&4
Oct 10&11
Oct 17&18

I live in Encinitas (San Diego North County) and would be glad to join your group. I can lead a group at San Diego Zoo or Wild Animal Park, or would be glad to join a group in LA/Orange county somewhere. I heard the Huntington Gardens are nice, but have never been.

I'm pretty open any weekend. I'd vote for either the 5/6 or the 12/13.

Wow, this thread still gets some traffic from time to time. Great!

@LomitaMike and @Touchdown - I'm here in the South Bay too. How about we grab coffee at one of the million Starbucks here in Torrance and plan a small shoot somewhere locally (Madrona Marsh, Western Air Museum, Riviera Village, beach, etc.). We can also brainstorm other photo ops for the larger region -- SoCal is huge -- where we can get more SoCal Dyxum folk involved!

I'll PM you guys later today.

Work is taking up a LOT of my time right now, so I haven't really been able to shoot much of anything. But I should have more free time by October. I've been wanting to go to the Huntington Gardens too. Let me know if you guys end up planning something.
