How did you learn about our photo club and classes?

I met one of your members Jeff Schoff yesterday at a horse show event in San Juan Capistrano. I saw him taking pictures and struck up conversation with him. He told me about the trips and workshops your club puts together. I would like to learn from and network with other photographers who share the same passion.

What areas of photography are you interested in?

I'm interested in all types of subject matter from landscape, nature, sports, automotive, portraits, and events. I would also like to learn more about creative techniques like light painting, time-lapse, and HDR. But the one aspect I feel the least knowledgeable about is lighting. Jeff also mentioned that your club is starting to include video as well and that is a strong interest of mine. Another frontier to explore is underwater photography once I can afford it.

What would you like to learn or receive from our club?

I would rate my skill level between amateur to experienced. I prefer to shoot manual settings and in RAW mode and incorporate the Colorchecker Passport into my workflow. I purchased my first DSLR last summer - a Canon 7D. And I just received a 5D mkiii and am excited to put it to use. I admit that I still have a hard time achieving tack sharp focus on my pictures, especially moving subjects. Like any other skill, it takes practice so I'm confident that your club can provide that.

Would you add your phone number and e-mail address so we can contact you.

Hi my name is James. I'm 39 years old and an Irvine resident. I enjoy taking photos and videos and hope to make a profession out of it. My background is in post-production so I am very comfortable doing such things like retouching.

What James is saying about this Meetup Group

Great club. Can't wait to go out and shoot with everyone.
