Welcome to the Springfield Photographic Society!
We are a group of photography fans that range from amateur to professional. We love to go out on photo field trips and have a good time and share what we know in order to help each other improve our craft. Read about how we started under ABOUT SPS. Please consider joining our club and attending our meetings. We'd love to meet you!
Photo challenge topics for 2017-2018 are listed here: 2017-2018 Exhibition Challenge Topics
Over the next few months we will have a new Word Press interactive and mobile friendly website! The plan is in place and once it's up and running you will all receive an email on how to log onto it and re-register. The site will be available for 3 audiences, the public, members only and administrative. Members will have the ability to upload their digital exhibition photos themselves. The new site will have an easy to sign up for field trips page and an easier to view gallery. The site will also have a blog with several areas including selling photo equipment, workshops, technical questions answered, photos contests, etc.
- Saturday morning walks with Larry Sanchez to be continued through the fall season - we've had some great walks with Larry this summer and he's decided to extend the walks until daylight savings time. If you weren't on his original mailing list please send him a note that you might want to join us at email@example.com Please note there will be no walks on September 2nd and the 16th. Saturday morning walks typically take place at various local spots and run from 7:30 - 10 AM, the point being to get there early, get some exercise, take some photos and help each other how to see and capture photographs.
