1) Christmas is Coming!

Well, the holiday season is upon us. For most of us it means Christmas shopping, family time, shoveling the snow time, and photo time! The holidays are always a great time to lug around your camera and lenses, capturing photographs of both the scenery and decorations, along with the priceless family photos that are in abundance around this time of the year. “Well that’s all fine and dandy, Tim. Tell us something we don’t know!” Geez, sorry. I was trying to be all warm and fuzzy for the holiday season – give me a break. Let me cut to the chase. Two things to keep in mind this Christmas. First: People buy lots of stuff around Christmas time. This means that there will be a whole lot of people with new gear around the Corner! Keep your eyes open for people asking questions about their new gear and try to be helpful. That’s what makes this community so great – that we can all help each other learn and grow as photographers. Second: Take lots of photos (a given, I know) and share them with us. As a community of photographers, there’s one thing that we all appreciate, and that is photographs, so don’t be shy and share them with us! (Just make sure you put them in the right forum, or the mods get mad). Speaking of the mods...


2) New Mods Around the Corner

Since we've released "version 2" of the Corner, the site has continued to grow and get more and more busy. Luckily, we've had 3 members step up to the plate and have become mods around the site. The mods (moderators) are around to help you with the site, move threads to the right forum, police the forums (if necessary) and help with the overall running of the site. Tyger (Ermin), crazyredwizard (Jay), and GREAPER (Brian) have joined the Mod Squad with RobW (Rob), herins (Heather) & Kara (Kara). A HUGE thanks goes out to the mods. Without them, this site would never run nearly as smooth as it does!


3) Buy a T-Shirt or Hat or even a Thong...

While it may be a little too late for holiday shopping, maybe you can use some money you get for Christmas to purchase some PhotographyCorner stuff. You've been asking for it, and it's finally here: The PhotographyCorner Stuff Store: http://www.cafepress.com/photocorner From t-shirts and golf shirts, to bumper stickers, magnets, sweatshirts and even thongs, you can get all your PhotographyCorner stuff at the store. Check it out, and let us know what you think here: http://www.photographycorner.com/for...ad.php?t=21521


4) Premiere Membership: Support the Corner

With the Corner continuing to grow and grow, the operating costs associated with keeping the Corner up and running grows as well. One of the best ways to support the site is to become a Premiere Member. Not only do you get to support the site you love and enjoy, but you also get some perks as well! Check out the Premiere Member page for more info: http://www.photographycorner.com/premiere-membership There are also some PhotographyCorner Pen & Keychain sets left! We did a limited run of 50 sets, and there are only a couple dozen or so left. Check out http://www.photographycorner.com/pen-and-keychain for ordering information.


5) Contest Corner Challenge #18

Photos for CCC#18: The Christmas Caper are due in by December 23rd. The prizes are being supplied by Kiesel Bags. Check out our review of their TZ600: http://www.photographycorner.com/pro...ying-equipment and get your entry in ASAP. Anyone that submits an entry, as long as it follows the rules ( http://www.photographycorner.com/for...read.php?t=494 ) is eligible to win!


6) "Noteworthy Notables"

There are a lot of new members around the site with well over 5000 since the site launched less than 2 years ago. If you're not as active around the Corner as you'd like, or you just don't have the time to find all the great threads, here's a list of some "must see" threads from the past month, as well as some "must read" resources from our photography resources center:

Controlling Exposure
A great article that outlines very important points about exposure including aperture stops, shutter speed stops, ISO and using your light meter, typing it all together with exposure.
http://www.photographycorner.com/art...lling-exposure

Digital Cameras vs. Film Cameras: Focal Length Explained
Why do 35mm camera lenses produce different focal length results when placed on a digital body? Check out this great article to find out.
http://www.photographycorner.com/art...ngth-explained

Medium Format
Are there any advantages of a medium format SLR over a 35mm SLR?
http://www.photographycorner.com/for...ad.php?t=21500

Photo Sharing Corner Guidelines
Probably a good idea to read before you post in here - especially with all the sub-forums available there now!
http://www.photographycorner.com/for...ement.php?f=38

Feedback Corner Guidelines
Same as above, but for the Feedback Corner
http://www.photographycorner.com/for...ement.php?f=35

Critiques Corner Guidelines
The mods will be all over you if you don't follow these guidelines for the Critiques Corner
http://www.photographycorner.com/for...ement.php?f=19


7) In Closing

Well, this is the last newsletter for 2005. Does time fly, or what? There are lots of plans for the Corner in 2006, all of which you'll have to wait to find out what they are. But trust me, this site will continue to grow and get better and better. The Corner is over 20 months old, with over 5,000 members and close to 200,000 posts. Who knows where we'll be by this time next year. If you have any ideas on how to improve the site, be sure to either drop us a line, or post about it in the Questions & Suggestions forum. Oh, and make sure you stop by the Corner between Christmas & New Years so you can vote on the PotM and the CCC contests. From all of us at the Corner, have a safe and Happy Holidays, and a great New Year!



See you around the Corner,
Tim L. Walker
