I’m so excited! I entered my first photography competition tonight, and I won an honorable mention!! There were three categories (digital, and Black/White-printed and color-printed) with 115 images, and the theme was “Wild Animals.”
I have been a member of the Southeastern Photographic Society (SPS) on Meetup.com for over three years, but had yet to attend a meeting… almost always because of conflicts. But finally, I joined as a full member and went to my first meeting tonight.
They had an informative speaker, and then the submissions, and then the winner announcements.
They have a competition and speaker (like tonight) once a month, a learning seminar once a month, a coffee-and-critique once a month, and then actual photo shoot events usually one or two times a month, sometimes more.
If you’re in the Atlanta area and interested in photography, I think it’s a great place to meet like-minded enthusiasts. I’m looking forward to learning more and starting to go on more shoots. I encourage you to look them up online if you’re interested.
Also check out the details on the photo I entered. I’d posted this on my blog over a year ago, but thought I’d go ahead and post it again. :)
