Some announcements for the January meeting
Dues are Due: Just a friendly reminder
to all that SPS dues are annual and
if you have been a paid member of SPS in the past, your membership
dues will be due Jan 2013. If you are planning to pay your dues at the
meeting tomorrow night (so that you
can participate in the Jan "Open" photo competition) you might want to
come a little early, as there is likely to be a mad rush at the sign-in
table. Individual dues are $30 and family dues are $40.
speaker and judge tomorrow night is John Mariana. The competition theme
is "Open" which means that the subject of the image can be anything you
choose (within the limits of any other competition), but must have been
taken in the last 12 months (i.e., 2012). We've been asked and it was
stated at the December meeting that images submitted for the Members'
Choice competition cannot be resubmitted for any other competition. The
meeting starts at 7:30pm. Don't forget to get your digital entries to
[address removed] by tonight.

The Southeastern Photographic Society (SPS) was formed to help its members learn the skills for capturing great images and sharing them with others. The society has been serving the photographic community since 1976, now with well over 200 members.
Each month SPS hosts a competition and lecture/presentation on the first Friday. Competition themes vary each month with the goal being to encourage members to shoot outside their "comfort zone".
On the 4th Tuesday of the month SPS hosts their popular member "Learn Shops"; informal lectures/presentations from club members to help teach each other a variety of photographic skills, from lighting and composition to Photoshop and Lightroom.
Roughly every other month SPS also sponsors a member workshop/field trip that is free to all paid members except when additional costs will be incurred for the venue and/or travel & lodging.
In order to enter images into competition (digital or prints) you must first be a full SPS member. Annual dues are $30 for individuals and $40 for households, due each January (some discounts/credits apply for registrations after March).
