1) Winter Holidays

I could have sworn it was summer just a couple of days ago... then, all of a sudden, the first snowfall came. Yikes! Where does the time go? And now, Christmas is less than 2 weeks away! One of the great things about this time of year though, at least this year, is all the very cool stuff that's going around the Corner. There's the Big Announcement coming early next week (shh! don't say anything!), the brand new PhotographyCorner Blog that will be launched this weekend, the new Corner Photo Galleries, and did I mention the Big Announcement? In other holiday news, CCC#29: Holiday Lights entries are due by the end of day on December 18th, and voting starts on the 19th (with the winner being announced on Christmas day! - how cool would that be to win a Contest Corner Challenge on Christmas Day!??!). There are some great entries so far, but definitely room for some more! You can't win if you don't enter.


2) Sponsor: ProPics Express

ProPics Express is one of the leading sponsors of the Corner throughout the Fall and Winter. You may have already seen their contest sponsorships along with their banners floating around the site, too. ProPics Express has already given out $1,500 in gift certificates to Photograph of the Month and Contest Corner Challenges winners, with THOUSANDS more to go over the next couple of contests. Now, that's all find and dandy, but what IS ProPics Express? Well, they're a full-service online digital photo lab that services both the professional photographer, and the advanced photo enthusiast. All of their photographic products are individually color-corrected, and then printed on Kodak professional paper (one of the few online labs in the world that prints all output on pro papers). Their print sizes range from small wallet-sized prints to 20x30 prints. In addition, they have their own frame division (HardWood Frames, Inc), so you can get the perfect frame from them as well. Now, if that weren't enough, they also offer items such as calendars, greeting cards and photobooks (with other great last-minute Christmas present ideas... hint, hint). With competitive pricing, and with most items shipping the SAME DAY the order is received, there's no doubt that ProPics Express is the online photo finishing of choice for the photo enthusiast.

3) Big Announcement...

Well, I can't say much without giving it away... but let's just say this announcement is HUGE news. Mark Tuesday, December 19th, 2006 on your calendars, and don't walk too far away from your computers and keep your email program open, 'cause you're not going to want to miss this! This announcement is the biggest thing to hit the Corner since, well, the Corner hit the Internet. I better not say anymore... I don't want to give it away... You can wait for 3 more days, can't you?


4) You Asked, We Answered

A couple of months ago, there were several threads in the forum discussing other (gasp!) photography sites on the Internet, and why you go to them (there are other photography sites?). Two of the main pieces missing from the Corner were: product reviews, and industry news. Well, both of these are being addressed. Firstly, we have contracted an independent, outside company to "stock up" our product reviews section, so starting in late winter/early spring, look for the product reviews section to get a serious bulk up. Secondly, while we already have a Photography News forum filled daily by our Corner Reporter, we are now adding a Corner Blog, where you will not only be able to get important updates about the Corner, but also crucial photography-related industry news. If you use an RSS reader, you'll be able to subscribe to the whole blog, or just certain categories. If you don't use an RSS reader and you want to start using one, feel free to send me a PM and I'll give you a hand setting it up. Keep your eyes peeled for the blog tab to appear at the top of the forum between the directory tab and the galleries tab some time this weekend - new posts will be added starting this weekend, and will usually have new posts added daily.


5) Gallery Goals: Part II

Last month, after the introduction of the Corner Photo Galleries, we set some goals to encourage people to start using them more. When we started our "contest", we had 1,600 photos upload, 400 comments and over 100,000 views. Our goals were to reach 10,000 photos upload, 10,000 comments and 1 MILLION views before the end of the year. So far we're at 3,300 photos, less than 600 comments, and over 360,000 views, so we've got a LONG way to go in the next 2 weeks!! Let's focus, for the next 2 weeks, on the comments... The Corner Galleries have somewhat replaced the old Photo Sharing Corner, which was full of comments, so make use of the new galleries, and go and comment on all the amazing photographs in there! If you see a photo with one or even no comments, make an effort to add your $.02 - everyone loves feedback on their photos! If we can get to these goals, perhaps Santa Claus ( http://www.photographycorner.com/forum/member.php?u=571 ) will bring us something extra special this Christmas.

7) Are You Ready?

So, this is the last newsletter of 2006. Next time you receive a PhotographyCorner newsletter, it will be Volume FOUR, Issue 1... yup, we're going into our 4th year soon, with our 3rd Birthday coming up at the end of March. But before then, we have Christmas (or Festivus, or Hanukkah or whatever winter holiday you happen to celebrate). Are you ready? Do you have all your shopping done? Did you specify the right lens mount in your Christmas list? I've already received most of my Christmas presents... the Corner Photo Gallery (still working on a couple of bugs, though), the new Corner Blog that should arrive this weekend, and, of course, who could forget the Big Announcement!! It's so exciting that... oh, right... I haven't told you yet. I'd better not spoil the surprise. You'll find out soon enough... Tuesday, remember? Keep your eyes on your inbox, and you'll be the first to know. Think of it as my Christmas present to you... you wouldn't want to ruin it by finding out now, would you?



See you around the Corner,
Tim L. Walker
