2013 Corner Fund Raiser Final Update

A little over two months ago, we announced a fund raiser here on the Corner with a goal to raise $4,800 which would help pay for all the server costs for another year+. Sponsorship and advertising revenue is down, but the costs to run this site continue to climb. While sponsors and advertisers do help to cover some of the day-to-day operating costs of the Corner, to keep our photography community chugging along, we needed to raise above and beyond what the Corner makes in standard advertising.

To those that have already donated, THANK YOU SO MUCH for supporting the Corner. If you haven’t had a chance to make a donation, you can still do so here. To date, we’ve raised $1,220 of our $4,800 goal, leaving us $3,580 short. We offered a bunch of prizes once the goal of $4,800 was met, but unfortunately we failed to hit that goal (though I’ll still be sending out the PhotographyCorner pens). If you haven’t already, PLEASE consider making a donation today.

Also, please take a minute to browse through the usernames of those who have made a donation - their usernames and donation amounts are listed at the bottom of the page here. These are the people that care enough about the community to donate their hard earned money to keep this place running. If you don’t have the ability to make a donation, at least take the time to thank these people for supporting the photography community you love.

Thanks to everyone who continues to support the Corner. Hopefully we can continue to raise money to keep this place alive and running smoothly.

Happy Holidays from the Corner (with Bonus!)

For many of us in the Corner community (and around the world), we’re right smack in the middle of the holidays (Christmas, Hanukkah, Festivus, whatever). Of course, around the Corner that also means that we’re in the middle of our annual Photograph of the Year contest. I’ve received hundreds on entries so far (I’m still working my way through them, so you will get a response from me eventually to let you know if your entry was accepted or not) and I can’t wait to show them all to you when voting starts in a couple of weeks.

One of the neat things about the contest this year is that Premiere Members can grab some bonus prizes (take a look at the prize list here)! If you want to have the opportunity to win some of the prizes, you have to be a Premiere Member. Lucky for you, from now until January 6th (when entries are due for the 2011 Photograph of the Year contest), you can get a Lifetime Premiere Membership (either level 1 or level 2), for HALF PRICE!! Not only are you giving yourself an opportunity to win bigger and better prizes (not only in the Photograph of the Year contest, but also in the Contest Corner Challenges and the Photograph of the Month contests), but you’re also supporting the site!

So if you’re not a Premiere Member yet, now is the best time to become one - at HALF PRICE! Click here to become a Premiere Member today.

Thanks to all those that continue to support the Corner with donations, and thanks to those who are already Premiere Members - you are really the heart of the community, and I am very thankful for each and every one of you. If you’re not part of the Premiere Member fold yet, I encourage you to become one today. Happy Holidays from all of us at the Corner.

It's Your Turn to Help with the 2011 Corner Fund Raiser

We’ve talked about it in the forums already, and now it’s time to take some action. Our server is getting old (over 65 in computer years!) and we need a new one - badly. In addition, as mobile computing because more and more popular, we’d like to be able to create an iPhone/Android app that you can download (for free) to browse the Corner a little easier. Unfortunutely, the cost of both upgrading the server and producing and releasing an app is fairly expensive. Advertising does cover most of the day-to-day operating costs of the Corner, but these upgrades/addtions are going to cost above and beyond what the Corner makes in standard advertising. Luckily, as an active member of the Corner, you can help.

We have a goal to raise $3,500 (US dollars), which will pay for all the server upgrades, as well as the increased monthly costs of the new server for the next year+. In addition, your donations will allow for the production and release of a PhotographyCorner iPhone/Android app (which will be available for FREE).

You can read through all the details of the fund raiser here on the 2011 Corner Fund Raiser page: where the money will be spent, who’s donated so far, and what you can win if you donate. Wait, what? There are prizes, too? Of course!

Thanks to some of our favorite sponsors (Tamron, Lowepro and Acme Made so far…), we have some prizes to give away to those that donate to the cause! If you donate $25, you get 1 entry, $50 gets you 3 entries, $100 gets you 8 entries, $250 gets you 25 entries, and $500 gets you 100 entries! Once we’ve raised the $3,500, I’ll throw all the entries into an randomizer, and send out some prizes (we’ve got over a dozen prizes so far - check out the fund raising page for details!). In addition, everyone that donates something gets their name listed down at the bottom of the fund raising page, and the eternal thanks and gratitude from the rest of the community.

You can make donations via PayPal by credit card, PayPal and even check. Decide how much you can help out, and click the “Pay Now” button at the bottom of the fund raising page.

Can we hit our goal of $3,500 by the end of May? Make your donation today!

Do You "Like" the Corner?

You’ve been asking for it (well, at least the moderators have been asking for it), and the Facebook “Like” buttons are finally here at the Corner. On the homepage and blog pages:

PhotographyCorner Facebook Like Buttons

and at the top and bottom of each thread:

PhotographyCorner Facebook Like Buttons

PhotographyCorner Facebook Like Buttons

So if you like the Corner, give us a “like.” And if you like a thread, give it a good ol’ Facebook thumbs up. It’s a great way to show that you like thread, and a neat way to share some good photography with your friends on Facebook.

The 2011 Corner Calendar's are Now On Sale!

It’s a project that’s been in the works for months, and we’re finally ready to begin taking orders. We’re talking, of course, about the 2011 Corner Calendar. Featuring 24 beautiful photographs by many of the most talented and most popular members of the PhotographyCorner community, this spectacular-looking calendar, being printed courtesy of Mpix.com, is finally ready to be printed and shipped. The 8.5×11 (11×17 open) calendar will be printed on high quality, pearl paper. Shipping (worldwide!) is included in the price ($25 for 1, $20 for each additional up to 5, $18 for any additional beyond 5). Remember, all proceeds from calendar sales go towards supporting the Corner (it ain’t cheap to keep the servers for this place running, you know).

It went on sale for Premiere Members last week (yet another perk of Premiere Membership), and they’re already flying off the proverbial shelves. The calendar boasts 24 photos (2 per month) from some of the best photographers and most popular members around the Corner: Photograph of the Year winning photos, Contest Corner Challenge winning photos, Premiere Project winning photos, and Photograph of the Month winning photos. Check out a small version of the cover below:



We anticipate getting the calendars in before the end of the month, and should have them shipped out to everyone well before Christmas (these will make AWESOME stocking-stuffers!).

Get all the details and place your order (before they sell out) here on the 2011 Corner Calendar ordering page. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them in the comments.

The 2011 Corner Calendar is Coming

2011 PhotographyCorner CalendarAbout a month ago, we sent out a survey asking if the PhotographyCorner community would be interested in putting together a calendar that featured a variety of PotM, PotY, and CCC winning photographs, and if there was enough interest to sell them as a fundraiser. Results were mixed, but definitely the majority liked the idea, and more than enough said you would be interested in buying one or more to support the Corner. After tallying the results from the survey, we’re going to go ahead and give it a go. We’ll start by doing a limited run.

We’ve already begun gathering photos (and release forms) from photographers, and we’re in the process of getting the calendar put together. Mpix.com has graciously offered to print them for us (so you know the quality will be fantastic).

Several hundred of you took the time to provide feedback on the idea, both positive and negative, and allow me to thank you all for all you input. Based on your feedback, here are some details on the calendar:
  • The calendar will feature mulitple photos per page so that we can include a couple dozen featured photographers
  • The calendar will be a standard 8.5×11 (11×17 open) size to save on shipping costs
  • The purchase price for the calendars will include shipping and any applicable taxes
  • Photo releases have been and are being obtained for each photo used in the calendar
  • The pricing structure will be as follows: $25 for 1st calendar, and $20 for each additional calendar (remember, shipping is included - world wide!)
  • Premiere Members will receive an additional discount of $2/calendar
  • The calendar will include international holidays (but not country-specific ones - this is an international community afterall!) as well as important days around the Corner
  • The calendar will be printed on high quality, pearl paper



The calendars will go on sale for Premiere Members on Friday, November 5th, and will be available for the community to purchase beginning on Monday, November 8th. The calendars will ship out before the end of November, so should be delivered well in time for Christmas (these will make awesome stocking stuffers!).

If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments - I’m looking forward to seeing our photos hanging on everyone’s wall!

Caption Contests Closed (for the Summer)

For almost 5 years, the Caption Contests have been a popular section of the Corner Forums. The premise: Someone posts up a funny photo, and we all come up with witty captions for said photo. The winner gets to pick the next photo and we start all over again. If you want to check out some hilarious photos with even better captions, take some time to wade through the first 200 caption contests.

That being said, as of late, we’ve noticed a dip in participation in the caption contests - maybe we’re doing them too often, maybe we need to offer token prizes? Maybe funny captions on photos are just “so 2007.” Regardless, we’re going to take a break from the Caption Contests for the summer. If you cry, beg, scream, wail and offer bribes throughout the summer in the comments thread here, we may bring them back in the Fall… maybe. Make sure to say thanks to digital2006 for hosting the contests over the past 1+ years… it’s more work than you’d think.

Forum Spotlight: Photography Equipment

The PhotographyCorner forums are filled with dozens of different forums; from the Conversation Corner and Member Introductions forums, to the Photo Sharing Corner and Critiques & Feedback Corner, to the Premiere Corner, Photography Contests and The Marketplace, and all the other forums in between. One group of forums that is often overlooked however, is the Photography Equipment forums. Almost all of us have a camera (it’s not a necessity around the Corner, though you’ll find that almost everyone that participates around the Corner has at least 1 camera), and the Photography Equipment forums are all about our cameras and accessories. We can talk about our new sigma lenses, the new Olympus dSLR, which filter set you prefer, point-and-shoot cameras, lighting, computers, software, etc.

Minor Update to the Photo Sharing/Critiques & Feedback Guidelines

Since the recent restructuring of the Corner Forums, we also updated some of the guidelines, including the guidelines for the new Photo Sharing Corner, and the guidelines for the updated Critiques & Feedback Corner. After some discussion, we’ve decided to make a minor update to the guidelines. Now, the guidelines for the Photo Sharing Corner and the Critiques & Feedback Corner contain the following note: “It’s often easier to show people rather than tell them how you’d change their photographs. Some people, however, don’t appreciate it when you edit their photographs. If you want to edit someone’s photograph, please make sure to ask before going ahead and making those changes.” Pretty straight-forward and simple: if you want to help someone by editing someone’s photograph, just ask first. Other than that, everything is the same as it ever was. If you haven’t jumped in to the new Photo Sharing Corner and Critiques & Feedback Corner, you should check them out - lots of great photographs being shared in the Photo Sharing Corner, and some great feedback and critiques in the Critiques & Feedback Corner.

Where To Post Your Photographs in the Corner Forums

With a bunch of restructuring going on in the Corner Forums, it can get confusing as to where to put your photographs. Here’s a little breakdown of what should go where. To start off, you have 3 options: the Corner Galleries, the Photo Sharing Corner, and the Critiques & Feedback Corner.
