1) Articles & Tutorials Wanted!

If you've been a member of PhotographyCorner for more than a couple of days, you're probably already familiar with the 30+ contests we run every year, as well as our active forums. You may have already found the photo galleries and the blog as well. But one of the oft-missed - but most valuable - parts of the site is the Corner Resource Center ( ). It's filled with hundreds of articles, tutorials and product reviews - all written by members of the Corner. But we need more! Do you have a favorite piece of equipment that you want to write about? Maybe a technique you use frequently that you think others would benefit from? Write an article/tutorial/product review for the Corner Resource Center! If you have an idea (or you want to write something but need ideas), send me an email or a PM and I'll be happy to guide you along the way. The more people we have writing, the better and more useful the Corner Resource Center will be.

2) Sponsor: B&H Photo Video

6) The New Mod Squad

Well, it’s been a long time coming, but we’ve finally done another mod shuffle in the Corner forums, and we’ve got a new Mod Squad for you. From dealing with spammers, to pointing newbies in the right direction, from editing posts, to monitoring the galleries - the mods are the people that keep the Corner running smoothly. Thanks to Michelle (chellezfotoz), Marty (digital2006), Mario (Nikon_Mario), Sharna (Sharna), Jennifer (jenfadder) and Sabine (Gems) for volunteering your time to help keep the Corner running smoothly! If you haven’t already, take a couple of minutes to congratulate and thank the new Corner Mod Squad -

See you around the Corner,
Tim L. Walker
