Possible SoCal meetup

Is anybody in Southern California interested in getting together? I was thinking of making it a semi regular thing, maybe at one of the camera shows?

Hi Steve,

What part of SoCal are you thinking? LA, OC, SD?

Thanks

I'm interested as well. I live in LA proper, but I think that meeting at one of the photo shows is a good idea, like PMA in Anaheim:

Sorry guys, I forgot all about this thread!

I guess PMA is not an option now.

Any other ideas?

You can come join in a monthly get together with this photogroup in SD San Diego DSLR Photography Group

There are several Pentax shooters who regularly go including a few who post to this board.

You definitely should. Keep on eye on that web site and see what shoot is being planned. Typically anywhere from 10-30 people will show up for a shoot (usually ~20) and its usually in a pretty cool location. Out of the 20 people probably 4 will be shooting Pentax with everything from an IR converted *ist to the kx and k-7.

The group is mostly avid hobbyists but there are a couple of professionals in the ranks - but of course a few of the hobbyists in the group rank among some of the better photographers I have seen depending on subject matter.

The Admin for that board (Shadzee on this forum) is a Pentax shooter.

I am a new user to this board, and just ordered my KX the other day. I am expecting it to arrive sometime this week. After I get acquainted with it, I would love to meet up with a few people for a photo shoot or just a chat session about how to get the most from my photography.

I will definitely look up that photogroup, but would also be happy to meet up with anyone else in the area!

I'm open to a meetup in LA County or the OC. It'd be nice to finally meet some fellow Pentaxians around here.

Going to Washington DC and Gettysburg/Antietam/Harpers Ferry on Monday for a week. Yay!

Would consider a get together sometime after. Ideas include...

Griffith observatory, day or evening. Overview of LA, hike up the hilltop for view, shoot the observatory itself, tour the inside, etc. Parking is a bit iffy, though, and could be a bit of a walk. It's free.
Official Site: Griffith Observatory Los Angeles, CA

Or Travel Town (trains) in Griffith Park...free.
Home

Petersen Automobile museum, near the La Brea Tar Pits and Page natural history museum. Parking plus entry is $15 or 20 but is well worth it.
Petersen Automotive Museum

Chino Planes of Fame, in...Chino. $11 entry (but not for me because I'm a member :-)
First Saturday of month has historical seminar (and a fly over usually).
