1) Around the Corner

For those of you that are new to PhotographyCorner, welcome to our community! Many of the members here consider the Corner their photographic home on the web. We share photographs, discuss equipment, techniques, and a variety of other photography and non-photography related subjects. If you've joined, but haven't yet started participating - jump right on in - you'll learn a lot more by participating (and it's a lot more fun as well!).

For those of you that call the Corner home, what do you want to see more of around the Corner? What do you want to see less of? Reply to this email and let me know one thing you love and one thing you'd love to see changed. I'll compile and list and we'll see what we can do to help the Corner to continue to evolve to the needs of the members. Keep your eye on the Corner Blog for the results.


2) Sponsor: Mpix.com

One of my favorite places to get prints and photography products from is Mpix.com. I have several gallery wraps made by Mpix.com in my house as well as numerous prints. Their gallery wraps are printed (via the giclee printing process) on fine art canvas and wrapped around a 1.5" stretcher wooden frame. The backs of the wraps are nicely finished and come ready to hang with brackets on the back.

Another one of my favorite products from Mpix.com is their metallic prints. Their metallic photo paper features a unique pearlescent surface that offers highly saturated colors, ultra-bright backgrounds, and will last a lifetime with typical home storage. I rotate 4 different metallic prints in a 38x28 frame in my living room and they simply look amazing.

From now, until midnight CST on October 31st, 2012, receive 25% off metallic prints with coupon code "PC25" - one time use, and only for members of the Corner. But hurry - the offer expires in a little over 1 day! Visit www.mpix.com to place your order today!

5) November Fundraiser

As many of you know, it takes a lot of time and money to keep a site the size of PhotographyCorner up and running smoothly. Many of the costs associated with keeping the Corner alive are covered by sponsorships and advertising, but sometimes that just isn't enough. In the next week or so, we'll be doing a flash fundraiser for the site. Our goal will be to raise funds for the Corner as quickly as possible. There will be prizes to be won, and of course, it will help keep the Corner up and running long term. Make sure to follow the Corner on Twitter (@thecorner), like the Corner on Facebook (www.facebook.com/photographycorner and subscribe to the Corner Blog (http://bit.ly/cornerblog) to make sure you don't miss any of the action.



See you around the Corner,
