HolidayCombo San Diego Photography Collective Photo Swap Meetup & Print Exchange

Our monthly meetup except that we're celebrating the holidays!

Since it's located not far from the 805, it should be fairly accessible from North County locations and other areas of the county.

This is a new location for our monthly gatherings:

5955 Balboa Ave.

NOTE: I have had numerous requests to hold the Photo Swap Meetup again and I'm hoping to put it together early in the new year. --> For those of you who are waiting, you are invited to bring along up to three (3) photography-related items (cameras, lenses, tripods, etc.) to this meeting to sell. You will be responsible for making the deal, so be prepared with cash to either be a buyer or a seller. Sellers should be as honest as possible regarding working condition of their items. [Remember: PLEASE limit your items to THREE ITEMS]. If this goes well, we may incorporate it into the monthly meeting permanently.


In addition, 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 (ANY subject matter:) 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.

• Prints should be brought to this event in a manila envelope or wrapped up so that the imagery cannot be seen beforehand. Each one will be numbered and corresponding numbers will be picked from a hat by members until all prints have been distributed. When all the prints have been distributed, 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: 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.

__________

Arrive early and join us for food and drink.

After brief introductions, we will feature photography show & tell, where you can bring cameras or other photography related items of interest to show to the group.

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

We will also be answering your photography questions and discussing technique and other issues among the group. Please bring your questions for us to discuss/answer.

We will be hosting guest speakers at some of these meetings too, so please check back for additional content or info to be added later.

___________

Coco's Restaurant & Bakery on Balboa Ave (Just west of I-805 near Genesee Ave.) has agreed to host our photo group in their spacious meeting room located at the back of the restaurant.

There is free WiFi, lots of comfy seating, plenty of parking around back and good food and drink available.

We have use of the room from 6:30 till nearly 10 (if needed for future events) but should be over before 9PM.

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] .

      I won't be there. I need to do Jake's blood test, and then give him his insulin an hour or two later. Have fun, Merry Christmas/ Happy Hanukkah to all!

    It was great seeing everybody and all of the images that were traded. I stitched together a pano shot of the folks holding up their prints and uploaded it...but unfortunately at 1/15th and hand held, I had to invoke some sharpening help from Photoshop.

    A little rain never hurt anyone. Just be prepared to give yourself a little more time in getting there (you know you need to get that raingear out of the back of your closet anyway...). We'll give everyone extra time tonight and extend the meet & greet part of the evening so everyone gets a chance to say hello before we start the swaps. • Remember, you can bring up to 3 photography items to sell and 1 print to enter in the photo swap. • Hope to see as many as possible tonight.
