_________________

Dorothy Malowney will be coordinating a themed photo event for the monthly gathering. The images will be projected on the wall digitally for review.

The current theme will be listed in the comments section near the bottom of the page. Keep checking back if you do not see it posted.

Entries should be emailed to Dorothy in JPG form and questions relating to the theme, sizes, etc. should also be directed to Dorothy.

----------------------------------------------------

If you have items of a photography nature to SELL (such as cameras, lenses, tripods, etc.) you can also bring them to the meeting.

Please limit items to five (5) or fewer.

___________________________________

We continue our series of photo exchanges for those that are interested in participating. This is entirely up to you, but if you bring an image, you go home with someone else's image.

Rules for those bringing PRINTS to exchange:

• Bring a photographic print of your work to trade with your fellow members. The print should be something that could be displayed on a wall but does not have to be matted (but can be). Color or black and white, ANY subject matter and it can be an old image or new.

• Prints should be brought to this event in an appropriate sized envelope or wrapped up, so that the imagery cannot be seen beforehand. Each one will be numbered and then numbers will be picked from a hat by members until all prints have been distributed. When all the prints have been handed out, we will open them and view them one by one in their numbered order.

You can trade prints afterwards if you'd like.

PRINT SIZES SHOULD BE 8x10 or larger. Please ADD YOUR NAME to the back of the print.

NOTE: Obviously, if you do NOT bring a print, you will NOT receive one.

REMEMBER: You are encouraged to bring a print to this event but it is certainly NOT mandatory.

____________

We will also be answering your photography questions and discussing technique and other photography related issues. Please bring your questions for us to discuss and hopefully answer.

We will be hosting guest speakers at future meetings too, so please check the calendar for upcoming events.


Bring your imagery to share, whether it be prints, snapshots, online or on digital devices! Got a new camera you're not sure how to use? Need advice on where to photograph or someone to partner up with for some outdoor photography? Just want to talk photography? This is the place!

Join us and meet with your fellow photography group members in a new, friendly and relaxed setting. Talk photography and share your photo work or view other member's imagery. This is also a good place to network for upcoming photo outings and events. Members are encouraged to share their expertise with other members. The more we all learn, the better pictures we take. If you'd like, you can bring something to the meeting that members can photograph to work on better photographic creativity. This event is FREE and friends are welcome to attend.

Member's photos are on the "photos" page for viewing. Browse our newly remodeled galleries! There are also more images located on the Northern Photo Group's website. Click the link to get there and go to "photos". Further links to individual member's website galleries are located in the message boards. You're also encouraged to make use of the message boards to buy/sell equipment, post notices for upcoming events you think might interest members, talk photography or related subject matter, etc. For more information, see [url=http://www.photo.meetup.com/208]http://www.photo.meetup.com/208[/url] [img]http://static.howstuffworks.com/gif/digital-photography-1.jpg[/img] .

    Actually I fell ill at the last minute & wasn't able to attend. However, this group is always excellent :-) And I am so thrilled. Apparently I have finally learned to bi-locate. Three people said that it was "nice to see me" :-)

    So sorry I couldn't come after all. I am looking forward to the February meeting. :-)

    For those who expressed an interest: the birds photographed by Linda Pardy are Pigeon Guillemot (Cepphus columba)

    1 · January 10, 2014

    • Sue S.

      Rick, sounds like you know your birds. A very odd occurrence happened in my backyard today. I saw a large, beautifully tailed bird ...and I grabbed my camera but I scared it off when I came out. It had a small bird in it"s mouth as it tried to find a route out through the trees...feathers left on grass. In looking up images, it seems closest to a young Peregrine Falcon or Red Tailed Hawk...likely in Clairemont? Scottish Sue

      January 10, 2014

    • Rick P.

      Sue: Peregrine is possible but unlikely. Red tails are common throughout San Diego.

  • Sue S.

    Thanks to Ken, Dorothy and all constructive commenters...I always learn!

    Very instructive session going through the challenge photos. Great to see old friends again. I don't mean chronologically old.

    REMEMBER: You can send your images for the monthly slide presentation to Dorothy or Ken Cohen. The current theme is "Senior Portrait". Contact either of them if you have questions as to size, format, etc.

  • Randy P.

    I'll bring something under the carnivorous category of main dishes...perhaps Demono's pizza or a Taco Hell family pack of pseudo-beef slurry tacos. Mmmmmm...

    1 · January 9, 2014

  • Lissa L.

    I just simply have no time to get to the store so I wont be able to bring anything for the potluck! So, I will just look longingly at all the yummies tonight!! :)

  • michael w

    Selling some of my canon lenses I don't use much. 70-300 is zoom, 50mm f1.4, a 50mm compact macro, and a 77mm variable ND filter. ILl have them with me tonight if anyone is interested.

    • michael w

      The swap meet idea sounds good too

      January 9, 2014

    • Cory P.

      I have old film cameras to sell. Swap meet would be good!

      January 9, 2014

  • mike c.

      Mike! Oh no! Who will bring the donuts?!?!?

      1 · January 9, 2014

    • Gary S.

      As you drive east along the south side of the Gorge from Portland their are many stops with views of fabulous waterfalls. A neutral density filter will help you get longer exposures of the water for that attractive wispy look.

  • Roy A.

    Sorry to miss this one. Gonna shoot the ponies for a couple days.

    January 8, 2014

  • Roy A.

    I'll bring chips & dip. If I cook I'd kill off more nice people ...leaving nutting but more ole' curmudgeons around like me to just grump at each other. Cruddy way to start the new year eh???

    1 · December 12, 2013

    • Cory P.

      MORE nice people??

      January 8, 2014

  • Dorothy M.

    Donna, folks do enjoy humus. Yes, there is a microwave. I will be bringing store bought lasagna.

    January 8, 2014

  • Dan C.

    Remember folks, this is a potluck event, so name what food group you'll be bringing so we don't get 5 people bringing a bag of chips. - I'll be bringing a dessert item, maybe mini bear claws.

    January 7, 2014

  • Dorothy M.

    Donna,
    RightLight Studios is a couple feet away from the Trolley Station at Mission Gorge Road. I don't know what the exact name of it is but that would be the absolute easiest for you. You could have one of the men walk you over after the meeting. The other option is to car pool with a member. Let's see who comes forward.

    January 7, 2014

  • Liwen

    Overtime at work. :(

    January 5, 2014

  • Dorothy M.

    Roy, Please send email me at [masked] with the information and accessories for your new little camera.
