Member's Critique - Evaluating Your Images with a Critical Eye
In what has become an annual SPS tradition, join Harriet Dye, Jack Martin, and Jeff Milsteen for a (mildly) entertaining and (mostly) enlightening evening of photo critiques. In addition to offering advice on how to critically evaluate your own images, Jack, Harriet and Jeff will also critique digital images submitted by attendees. Digital images submitted by members will be presented for critique anonymously — the point is to focus on the photograph, not the photographer. Even if you don’t want to submit a photo, please join us and you're sure to pick up some pointers about how to critically evaluate your own work and thereby improve your photography. Please submit up to two digital images that you would like critiqued to [masked], following the normal sizing guidelines for submitting images for SPS competitions. Instructions can be found here: We will only critique digital submissions — no prints! Images must be submitted no later than 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 20th. IMPORTANT: Please include the word “Learnshop” in your email subject line. Note: Photos submitted for this critique session are also eligible for submission into later SPS competitions, provided, of course, the photo meets the requirements for those competitions. ****************************************************************************** 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

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 250 annualy paid 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 fully paid SPS member. Annual dues are $30 for individuals and $40 for households, due each January.
