1) Around the Corner

It's been a busy month around the Corner - from 74 entries in Contest Corner Challenge #97, to a killer deal on memory cards in the Photography Deals forum, to loads of spammers, and even a movie shot on Canon dSLR products directed by Ron Howard (links to everything but the spammers somewhere in the newsletter below). For those of us in the northern hemisphere, the weather is getting better (sorry to those in the southern hemisphere who are coming into their winter season), which generally means we're getting outside more often and taking more photographs (which means even more going on around the Corner!). Make sure to drop by and share some of your new captures - we love seeing your photographs (and we have some amazing contests and sponsors coming up over the next couple of months that you're not going to want to miss!).


2) Sponsor: B&H Photo Video

Speaking of amazing sponsors, B&H is world-renown as the place to go for all your photo, video, pro audio and digital imaging needs. Now PhotographyCorner and B&H have partnered together to bring you great deals on photography gear through our new Photography Deals forum ( http://bit.ly/photo-deals ). In addition, a portion of every purchase you make at B&H (if you start shopping from the link below) will go toward supporting the Corner! B&H brings you great deals on photography gear, and you get to help the online community you know and love - sounds like a perfect fit to me. Start shopping today at http://bhpho.to/photographycorner

7) Benefits of Premiere Membership

You've probably seen the "Private" forums between the Photography Contest forums and The Marketplace forums. Ever wonder what goes on in there? Not only are Premiere Members able to nominate photographs for each and every Photograph of the Month contest, but the Premiere Corner is also home to the Premiere Projects - always among the most active sections of the site month after month. Premiere Projects are the perfect combination between themed contests and group projects. Every couple of weeks, a new theme is presented. Premiere Members go out and take photographs that meet that theme, then post them up for critique and review. Dozens of people comment on and review all the images posted, and after a couple of weeks, the community votes on the best photograph taken in the project. The winner not only gets to pick the next theme, but their winning photograph gets an automatic entry into the next Photograph of the Month contest (and has won numerous times!).

But the benefits of Premiere Membership go beyond even that. From larger prizes in the PotM & CCC contests, to better and more frequent comments on photographs posted, Premiere Members are the ones that make the Corner what it is. They are more engaged in all aspects of the site, give more comments, receive more comments, win more contests and become better photographers because of it. If you're not a Premiere Member, what's holding you back? You don't know what you're missing - become a Premiere Member today: http://www.photographycorner.com/premiere-membership



See you around the Corner,
