San Diego Photography Collective Meetup At Right Light Studios

NOTE: I will be bringing two recent Nikon film cameras along that were donated to the group.If you are interested in learning to shoot with film, this is the opportunity to do so. I will select two people to receive them but you must be in attendance. - Dan


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.  

NOTE: The current theme will be --> SIGN (OR SIGNS) <--

Subject matter for your image is entirely up to you.

Use your imagination and don't be afraid to think outside the box and be creative. 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] .
