Next Meetup

April Learnshop: Line, shape, form, texture, patterns... Putting it all together
How many times have you wondered how to improve your pictures? You have been studying and putting an effort to improve your photography and you are still not happy with the results. Well, it happens so that a good image is as much the result of good technique as it is of good composition. Better understanding how to use the multiple elements of composition can go a long way on improving your images. Join our club member and past president Kenneth Ross on an interesting discussion on the elements of composition and how better use them to improve your images. You can find some of Ken's images here: http://www.kennethrossphotography.com/about.html ********************************************************** SPS Monthly Meetings (first Friday of each month) are for its members and guests. While competition entries at these monthly meetings are restricted to currently paid-up members, we ALWAYS welcome visitors interested in photography to attend. The Learnshops (fourth Tuesday of each month) are intended for members, but again, we welcome visitors. If you attend regularly, we ask that you help support the club (which pays for the rental of the facilities, supplies, and equipment) by becoming a member! !

What we're about

Public Group

The Southeastern Photographic Society (SPS) was formed by photography students at the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center 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.

The club tries to arrange for field trips throughout the month. These field trips are designed around upcoming photography themes but also around events that take place in the local area. Sometimes we just like to get out with others and share our knowledge.

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).
