1) Here We Grow!

It feels like I just finished writing the last newsletter, and it's already time to write another one. My how time flies when we're having fun! But seriously, around the time I wrote the last one, about a month ago, we had just over 600 members, and now we're approaching 1200!! We've almost doubled our user base over the past month. In addition, we've had over 10,000 posts in the last month alone. Talk about a growth spurt! As the site continues to grow, I'm sure we'll have some growing pains and changes along the way, but all of you continue to make this place an awesome community for photographers, and it makes me proud.

Speaking of changes, there have been some minor ones the past month. A couple of the forums have changed names, and we've added a new forum called the "Feedback Corner." This is a great place to post up a photo that you know needs a little work, and you're looking for some advice how it can be made better, or how it could have been taken better. This is not to be confused with the Critique Corner, where we critique photos. When you have a chance, there are a couple of new "guideline" threads at the top of the Feedback Corner and the Critique Corner - make sure you take a minute and check them out.



2) Sponsor

Over the past couple of months, you've probably been noticing that some of our contests have had sponsors. These are companies that support the growth and maintenance of PhotographyCorner. One of those companies is All Media Server (www.allmediaserver.com). All Media Server is a delivery service for photographers, music artists, film makers and journalists to distribute their craft to consumers and the professional niche communities. All Media Server will also be sponsoring the next Photograph of the Month contest, in addition to some placement throughout the site. If you're interested in selling some of your work, you'll want to check out All Media Server at www.allmediaserver.com



3) Premiere Projects

If you haven't become a Premiere Member of PhotographyCorner, now's the time to join! We've recently started up the Premiere Projects section to the site, where every other week, we'll post a theme we can all go out and shoot, and them bring back what we ended up with, discuss, critique and learn from each other. This is a great way to motivate yourself to go out and shoot at least every other week, as well as learn new photography techniques and pull yourself out of your comfort zone to take photographs that you might not normally take. If you're interested in becoming a Premiere Member (Premiere Projects are only one of many benefits!), check out http://www.photographycorner.com/pre...membership.php for more information!



4) Contest Corner Challenges

Over the past couple of contests, Contest Corner Challenge entries have been dwindling a little bit. People are busy, it's generally a yucky time of year to be outside taking photographs. Our current contest, which has had it's deadline extended, is CCC#10: True Love. You've got until February 20th to get your photographs of "True Love" in. Starting with the next contest, we will be giving a little more time for each contest by announcing the next contest during the voting of the current contest. Hopefully that should allow more people some extra time to plan and take their photographs for the contest. Even if you're not an amazing photographer, you can still enter and win a Contest Corner Challenge. At the very least, it's a great excuse to go out and take some interesting photographs (and rumour has it, there will be some prizes coming very soon!).



5) "Noteworthy Notables"

Just thought I'd point out a couple interesting topics that have been on recently here on the forums. If you haven't checked out the topics below, they're worth a read.

Wedding Lighting
Some varying advice on lighting when photographing a wedding
http://www.photographycorner.com/viewtopic.php?t=4233

How to Meter
A great thread that discusses different metering techniques
http://www.photographycorner.com/viewtopic.php?t=4812

Duck Emoticons
There's been something very ducky around the forum lately - help us pick a new duck emoticon

6) Final Thoughts

There's lots going on at PhotographyCorner these days. We're getting bigger and bigger and better and better all the time. We've got a new mod, drlynn, who's been doing an excellent job. We're adding new resources to our Photography Resources section every week almost (if you'd like to write an article or tutorial for the site, let me know!), and averaging a new member almost every other hour! Not only has PhotographyCorner turned into a great site for photographers to learn about photography, but also a great place for people with an interest in photography to just hang out and interact. I hope you all enjoy the site as much as I do. If you've signed up recently, but have yet to start posting or sharing photographs or asking questions, drop by and introduce yourself - we'd love to have you here. Here's a special thanks to all the active members who take it upon themselves to welcome all the new members. We're a very welcoming community, and our great community spirit shows, especially to those new to the site.

If you have any questions or suggestions for the site, feel free to ask and let us know in the Questions & Suggestions forum ( http://www.photographycorner.com/viewforum.php?f=19 ). Make sure you drop by closer to the end of the month to vote on both the Contest Corner Challenge, as well as the Photograph of the Month (but of course, you're more than welcome to drop by before then!). And, if you're bored and have nothing better to do, go out and take some pictures, then bring them back here to show us your stuff!


See you around the Corner,
Tim L. Walker
