Next Meetup

Stone Mountain Sunset Stroll
This event will be hosted by Josh Earhart as Audrey Andersen has been called away by the American Red Cross to assist in the recovery of Hurricane Micheal in the Florida Panhandle. We wish her well in support of those in need. ______________________________________________________________________________________ Twice a year, from the perspective of the top of Stone Mountain, the sun sets behind the downtown Atlanta cityscape. Each day the sun transitions a couple of degrees. This year, based on The Photographer's Ephmeris (http://app.photoephemeris.com/?ll=33.806021,-84.146120¢er=33.7636,-84.3880&z=17&spn=0.00,0.01&dt=20170221083800-0500), the sunset transition will start on Wednesday, October 17 through approximately Tuesday, October 23rd. Sunset times will be around 6:57PM. We are the mercy of the weather, especially clouds. While we will plan to go on this date, we may have to alter the dates based on the potential for cloud cover. No guarantees and sometimes we never know what we'll see until we get to the summit. Those of you who have not had the chance to do this, will either want to take the Summit Skyride (http://www.stonemountainpark.com/activities/attractions/Summit-Skyride)($6 and weather dependent) up before it closes or hike up the mountain 30-45 minutes. Contact the Summit Skyride to check on their schedule. You'll need a tripod, cable release, long lens (minimum 200mm). Bring a flashlight for walking down in the dark. It can get windy up there so plan to dress accordingly. For those of you who want to meetup before the hike, meet at the bathrooms at the beginning of the trail, https://goo.gl/maps/zcPc0. We'll plan to start the hike up around 5pm. ******************************** LIABILITY NOTICE: By signing up and attending a Meetup sponsored by the Southeastern Photographic Society, I acknowledge that these activities can be hazardous and that I could be injured or my property damaged.

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.
