Do you want to move your photography up to the next level? Would you like to meet other photographers, share your images with them, learn what they know, and share what you know?

The Seattle Photographic Society (SPS) was formed to help its members learn skills for capturing great images and sharing them with others. Novices, amateurs, advanced amateurs, and professional photographers are welcome.

On the first Tuesday of the month,  SPS hosts Projected Image Night. Images are critiqued either by a commentator or by the audience and scored by a panel of three judges. Guests may enter images for commentary only. Viewing the images and listening to the comments and suggestions and trying to apply what you have learned is one of the best ways you can improve your photography. During the coffee break and after the meeting, you will have an opportunity to socialize with other photographers.

On the second Tuesday of the month, SPS hosts Print Night. We break up into groups of 4-7 people and pass the prints around for critique. There are usually homemade cookies at the coffee break!

The third Tuesday of the month is SPS's Education Night. We have guest speakers, demonstrations and hands-on activities covering a wide variety of photographic topics from lighting and composition to Lightroom, Photoshop, and other image editing programs. From time to time we meet away from our usual venue and have a photo shoot.

In order to enter images into competition on Projected Image or Print Night, you must first be a full SPS member. Annual dues are $40. This is one of the best photography education deals in town. You can pick up an application form at one of our meetings or download it from our website,
