Combined San Diego Photography Collective Meetup at Coco's In Clairemont

Our monthly meetup.

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: We will be doing photo critiques at this meeting. You can bring up to three (3) of your photos for critiquing by the group members. These images should be 8x10 or larger.

This is in ADDITION TO our regular photo exchange (you can ALSO ask for critiquing of your exchange print, if you'd like).

_________

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] .

    Hey Roy, Great talking to you I just ordered it on Amazon a Canon Sx40, with a 500d close up. Can't wait to get it. Maybe 4/28 we should have a MEET UP here at Flinn Springs County Park

    Great meeting. Would have liked more time to for critiques; really enjoyed and learned from everyone. Suggest alternating weeks with exchanges and critiques to have enough time. Just a suggestion.

    1 · March 15, 2013

  • Dan C.

    It was a full night! Thanks to all who brought photos to exchange, photos for critiquing, things to sell, show & tell items, etc. Like I said, it was a full (and fun!) night. :)

    The location was easy to get to for me this time; however, I agree with Angel that the Language Center was the best location by far.

    I should be back in time coming back from LA.
    I have to show the group my ZOMBIE TREE shot I think it's AMAZING.

    2 · March 14, 2013

  • Roy A.

    For those who like macro shooting I picked up one of these (killer deal)

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00974UYA6/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    It's $34.00.

    It works.

    I will bring it tonight for anyone that wants to see a nice inexpensive macro setup of an SX40HS + Canon 500D closeup lens + 90EX hot shoe mini flash commander driving two Canon 270DXII slaves mounted on that macro rail on Velbon UT45L legs.

  • Dan S

    Hi. Sorry to crash this meetup, but by any chance does anyone have a spare or older DSLR that they would be willing to loan or rent to me for this weekend? Camera rentals at photo shops are kind of rediculous. I am very careful with all of my things and promise that I'd take good care of your equipment. Please let me know. You can call or text me at[masked]-6058. Thanks.

    March 7, 2013

    • Dan C.

      I don't but perhaps someone else does.

      March 8, 2013

  • Rocio

    This would be the first time I'm here, so... any tips of what to bring? just a printed photo for now?

    2 · March 5, 2013

    • Dan C.

      Yes, a print for the photo exchange is always a plus and if you have anything to sell photographically, bring that as well. We look forward to meeting you.

    Shoot, no pun intended, this is the same night of the week the night photogs meet...any chance of another night?

    February 16, 2013

    • Dan C.

      I don't see another event on our calendar for that night.

      1 · February 19, 2013

  • Randy P.

    Actually, this is a definite "maybe". I might be tied up that night...but if I'm free, I'll be there.
