NOTE: Our combined groups monthly meetup is now at The Right Light Studios in Mission Valley, just behind the Grantville Trolley Station.
Presentation this month:
Volunteering in Photography
Most professions require, in their Code of Practice, some requirement for “pro-bono” giving back to the community. Although, professional photographers may not be considered professionals when compared to Doctors, Lawyers, etc. , volunteering your services can be extremely rewarding. The November Meetup presentation will cover a number of areas where photographic help is needed and both professional and serious amateurs can be vital contributors.
Our speaker/member, Ken Cohen, will illustrate how simple yet rewarding volunteering your photographic services, can be. He will take you on a virtual tour of hospital labor & delivery room, Special Olympics softball fields, and non-profit event coverage and will take your questions afterwards.
Also: Dorothy Malowney is coordinating a themed photo event for the monthly gathering. The images will be projected digitally on a large screen or wall.
The current theme is listed in the comments section near the bottom of the page. Entries should be emailed to Erin at: firstname.lastname@example.org in JPG form.
Direct your questions regarding file size, etc. to Erin as well.
Questions relating to the theme should be directed to Dorothy.
THIS IS A POTLUCK EVENT - YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO BRING FOOD AND DRINK TO SHARE. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PARTICIPATE IF YOU DON'T WANT TO OF COURSE.
PLEASE LIST YOUR ITEM(S) IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW AS TO MAIN COURSE, SIDE DISH, DESSERT, DRINKS, ETC. SO THAT THERE IS MORE VARIETY. WE ALSO WILL BE IN NEED OF PAPER PLATES, CUPS & UTENSILS.
[You can also 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!
You can bring your own food and there are kitchen facilities on location.
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.
Details are below.
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 five (5) or fewer.
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.
Arrive early to socialize with your fellow photographers and friends.
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.

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] .
