This meetup has moved from American Canyon CA, just north of Vallejo, to Alameda Ca., just west of Oakland.

    "I shot my very first headshots today. There are problems with the white shirt blending into the background, but I like the expression better than the other one I shot after my wife gave her a scarf."

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
