San Diego Photography Collective Meetup At Right Light Studios

Meet & Greet

Pot Luck (Food & Drink)

The Monthly Photo Challenge

Print Exchange



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

The current theme for the June meetup is 'WATER'. 

Use your imagination and don't be afraid to think outside the box. All members are invited to participate, even if you do not attend the meeting.

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


Our monthly Photo Exchange will follow - Details on preparing your prints are below.


Please arrive early to socialize with your fellow photographers and friends. 



You can also invited to bring any kind of outside food & drink that you'd like, for your own personal meal if you desire.


There's lots of free parking and free WiFi!

There are kitchen facilities on location.








Photography Related Gear Swap:

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] .

    Fun event - very glad to see the new digs. I wish I had been organized enough to send in a photo - here's the one I would have picked. Where the water ends. Looking forward to next month!

    Enjoyable evening with the Monthly Challenge featuring the theme of "water". As usual, a very nice selection of entries that covered many angles. The monthly photo exchange had some terrific images that changed hands. The pot luck food was outstanding, and I'm sure I gained a pound that will have to be worked off tomorrow :) - Thanks to all that attended and contributed to a great evening!

    So, I was going to post a meetup but it just got too late, but anyhow, I will be heading to adobe falls just up the road to the west from the studio today around 4:00. pm. If you are interested in checking it out, call me at[masked]-9695. I have not been there so I am not sure where they are exactly so this is a scouting event, so to speak. Like I said, call me with any questions.

      This is one thing I found...

      June 18, 2014

    • Deana S.

      The waterfalls can most easily be accessed by parking at the end of 5800 Adobe Falls Road adjacent to the designated San Diego Open Space. Walk around the fence and take the dirt road leading down to the river. Splash across the shallow water and follow the dirt road toward SDSU for four minutes. Continue another three minutes up the trail after the road ends to the Adobe Falls rock formations. Another minute of more challenging rock scrambling reveals the upper falls. The hike to the lowers falls is not difficult, though the ability to ignore graffiti is needed."

    I will bring more drinks.

    Remember, the theme for the Challenge is "Water". You can interpret it any way you'd like. Your JPG images should be sent to Dorothy as soon as possible to be included in this month's slideshow. Her email address is listed near the top of the page.
