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.

Picture Pals - Sunday Dec 19th - Hotel del Coronado Holiday Lights

Join us for an early evening wander around the Hotel del Coronado to photograph and enjoy the holiday lights. We'll get there a little before sunset, shoot for a couple of hours and afterwards we'll find someplace agreeable for dinner.


Meet Time / Place:  Sunday, December 19th, at 4:00PM. Meet at the south side of the ice skating rink at the Hotel del Coronado. There are some benches along the walk-way, we can gather there. Sunset is at 4:46PM on Sunday.

Be sure to bring a tripod, and I've found a wide-angle lens to come in handy, both outside and in the lobby for the Christmas Tree.  A flashlight is handy as well.



Parking Suggestions:  There are lots of spaces along the beach-front road just north of the hotel. I've always been able to find something out there, you might have to walk a block or two. If you're driving south on Orange Ave from the bridge, turn right at the light just before the hotel, and start looking for a place to park. The sidewalk on the water side of that street turns into a walkway between the hotel and the sand, and goes right past the ice skating rink where we'll meet.


Dinner:  I thought we might shoot for a couple of hours, then go looking for a place for dinner. Normally I would suggest the Il Fornaio at the Ferry Landing, but there will be no parking over there due to the Boat Parade that night. We should be able to find something we all agree on out on Orange Avenue within walking distance of the hotel.


Contact Info:  My cell phone (or txt) is six one nine - 855 - zero eight three six.
