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.

Saturday March 19th - Full Moon Shoot

On Saturday March 19th the full Moon is supposed to be the closest it's been to the Earth in 18 years. Apparently there are folks who believe that the increased gravitational pull of the Moon is going to cause all sorts of mayhem and maybe even some destruction. If nothing else, some really high and low tides.  So . . . I've been working on a spot to photograph all that from. Larry (xiceman) and I have come up with a few ideas, at this point the best sounding ones being either the end of Shelter Island or Harbor Island looking towards downtown.  We may not decide on a spot until the last minute, I'm thinking I might scout out one or two on Friday night to see what they look like. The TPE program indicates Harbor or Shelter Islands might be good.  Another option is in front of the Il Fornaio Restaurant at the Ferry Landing on Coronado. From there the Moon will rise over the east end of the bridge, I think kind of over the shipyards and maybe Mt. Helix. The advantage of that one, of course, is proximity to good food afterwards.


I'm thinking we could get to our spot maybe around 6:30 to 7:00PM to get set up. Sunset is at 6:59PM, and moonrise is at 7:23PM.  We can go look for some dinner afterwards.


If anyone is interested in joining in let us know.  We'll post up more information as it develops. We can also talk at the Group Shoot.
