Welcome to the San Diego Digital SLR Photography Group

We welcome all DSLR photographers in the San Diego area to our online camera club. Our aim is to be a center of excellence for DSLR photography in San Diego, California.

San Diego Digital SLR Photography Group is an informal camera club of digital photographers in San Diego California. Our aim is to encourage DSLR owners to get the most from their cameras by joining a community of like-minded individuals who love their art and enjoy sharing their knowledge of photography.

We meet for regular photography group shoots on the second Saturday of each month at locations around San Diego County. The venue is usually announced on the web site around two weeks before the scheduled date. Images from the DSLR group shoots are shared on this site for all members to enjoy in a non-competitive way.

Tartan Day San Diego - Sat April 2 - Balboa Park

I thought I would let people know that this Saturday, April 2, is the Tartan Day celebration in Balboa Park. All the Scottish clans get together in the lawn area at the International Houses, from 11:00AM to 4:00PM.  Heather and I are planning to be there, so look for us if you happen by.  We're also planning to hit the Zoo first, if anyone is interested in meeting us let me know.
