As a husband of one and father of two I must keep working during the day but at night I'm either taking my daughter to Taekwondo class, my son to baseball practice/games, playing my trumpet in the Coronado Big Band or thinking of places to go to take pictures.

Very simple...learn how to use my camera, learn how to take pictures and find things to take pictures of.
So far, I've taken the majority of my shots in Coronado, Balboa Park, various playgrounds (with my kids), beaches, Disneyland, Seaworld, at my mothers place. I'm trying to vary what I take shots of so I start to learn what I enjoy taking pictures of but I think my favorite place is the beach and my favorite subjects are my kids. They seem more engrossed in what they are doing rather than being affected by the big guy taking pictures of them. Makes it easy to take candids.
September 6, 2011 marked my graduation from point-n-shoots to a DSLR. I've always loved taking pictures but never achieved what I would call impressive. Starting this new phase in photography there's so much to learn and I can't get enough of it.
As my first meetup with the group I can say it was a very pleasurable experience with very nice people with very fast camera's. :-) Had fun. Already looking forward to the next meetup.
