    Re: November Group Shoot

    I've got to go to a wedding on the 22nd—hopefully I'll catch the next group shoot!

      I think I can get us a Docent from Torrey Pines to walk us around and point out some of the better things there. Free.

      O.K. he is my father in law
      And he is a pretty good photographer
      And he is a geophysicist

      But besides all that he is a docent at Torrey Pines and leads group walks there all the time. I'm trying to make sure he goes.

        Anyone who is thinking about the Salton Sea and particularly the North Shore Yacht Club...

        The County of Riverside has taken over the yacht club and is restoring it into a community center and museum. It has lost all its charm as a photo subject and is currently fenced off because of on-going construction.

        Here is what it looked like in March:



        And here's what it looks like now:

          Did you take a boat out there? I don't remember being able to get that angle.
          Throw a little light. If it doesn't come back, it probably fell off...

          Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 It's the older model w/o the AF motor and it focuses FAST. It's just like the 17-50, only longer.

            There's a man-made breakwater you can walk out on. That part of it isn't fenced off.

              Hello all - I attended the Del Mar Photo Expo this past weekend and two members at the SDPF booth convinced me to join. What are the details for the November photo shoot?

                Thanks for joining - you should have some fun here.

                The details are not yet set, and Marshall needs to get his act together about that. Say 10:00am on Sunday?

                  Thanks. I'll keep an eye on the forum for where and when details. J

                    Doesn't that put us on Torrey Pines at the worst possible time for light. I would suggest either early in the morning, or better yet, later in the day, when the cool red rays burn in at a low angle and cause sharp deep shadows.

                    Just my humble opinion...

                        If it's later in the day, I can probably +1.

                          Indeed we'll be going with late in the day on Sunday. We'll go with 2pm which should give us time to meet up and hours to shoot as the light will just be getting good. I'm working on an exact location now.

                            2 works. At least I've got people talking about it. . .

                            Remember Marshall that I've got a Docent who can walk us (possibly) off trail for some of the better shots.

                                Parking is $10 per car. Consider carpooling.

                                A quick suggestion: Meet at the lower parking lot, carpool up the road as parking in the upper lots is always hard, and by 2 pm it will be crazy bad. Consider either the Guy Flemming trail (nice and level, lots of trees), or going up to the lodge and doing a walk out from there. Perry Grove trail is nice, however there are steps to walk down to get to it. Nice place used by painters. Great Photo ops, including High Point, and the Lodge and the North end of the Flemming trail have bird paths for those who want birding photos.

                                Meet at steps across from lower parking lot. Bring Tripods for good shooting here. Sometimes surfers are out, and you can get some of those as well.

                                I will have my Father-in-law/docent with me and he will have maps for us to use.
