1) Transition

As September approaches (yikes!), it's a transition for a lot of us. Students going back to school soon (sorry!), sitting in front of their computers typing out essays and assignments; wedding photographers finishing off their last summer weddings and huddling in front of their computers doing touch-ups; summer vacations coming to a close - people in front of their computers sorting, editing, printing and emailing photos from various summer excursions... see a pattern here? Over the past 3.5 years the Corner has been around, there has always been a bit of a dip in traffic in the summer, only to see a huge spike in the fall. Are you ready? More comments on your photos, more photos to comment on. More questions in the forum, more answers to your questions. More photography gear to buy, more money... er, well... it depends on how much you spent on your vacations, I guess. Never fear, however! We'll all be here for you at the Corner - now busier than ever. More photos, more comments, more questions, more answers, more blog posts, more interviews, more articles, more tutorials, more projects and assignments, more contests, more (and bigger!) prizes - a photographers' dream! Kinda makes you look forward to autumn, doesn't it?


2) SmugMug Corner

In case you missed it, there's a new sponsor in town: SmugMug. To get the whole lowdown on the sponsorship, to save this newsletter from being longer than it has to be, check out the full blog post here: http://www.photographycorner.com/blo...-to-the-family

But what is SmugMug Corner? It's a new "feature" on the Corner Blog where, every Friday, we'll interview a successful photographer from the SmugMug family. We'll talk shop, learn some tips and techniques, learn how they market themselves and sell photos, and we'll take a look at some of their photography. Think of it as weekly mini-gallery that you can attend and chat up the feature photographer. After the interview is posted, as always, you're welcome to comment and discuss in the blog comments (which are located in the forum). If you don't want to miss any of this action, make sure you subscribe to the PhotographyCorner Blog today: http://feeds.feedburner.com/photographycornerblog


3) Contest Corner Challenge Update

As I'm sure you're aware, a while back we decided to set up a schedule for the Contest Corner Challenges. Up until a couple of months ago, they would kinda run for 3-4 weeks, starting and ending somewhat randomly. The voting period was always 5 days, but everything else was a little, well, unscheduled. Now, every three weeks, like clockwork, a new contest starts. 13 days later, entries are due. The next day, voting starts. 5 days later, voting ends. The next day, the winner is announced, and the following day, the next contest starts. Pretty simple, eh? If you lose track of time, though, you can always count on the Corner Calendar to keep you up to date: http://www.photographycorner.com/forum/calendar.php

Now, CCC#37: Headlines is going on right now. In fact, entries are due in by midnight on Monday (yes, as in August 20th). Voting starts on Tuesday, August 21st. So far, we have less than 10 entries in for this contest, and with a sweet prize from SmugMug up for grabs, I'm expecting a lot of entries to show up at the last minute. You've got less than 24 hours to get your photos in. Grab the Monday paper, and take a picture - easy as that. For more detailed info on CCC#37, check out the contest thread: http://www.photographycorner.com/for...ad.php?t=62535


4) Corner Member Interviews

Have you ever wanted to know a little bit more about the people around the Corner? You see their photos, read their comments, but who ARE they? How did they get to be so good? What makes them tick? Well, let me introduce you to yet another new feature on the PhotographyCorner Blog: Corner Member Interviews! Every couple of weeks, we'll be "getting to know" some of the more prominent photographers that hang around the Corner - learn about who they are, what they do, their photographic background and experience, and take a look at some of their favorite photographs. We started off with a bang, releasing our first one on Saturday featuring the one and only: fa1sal! It's a long read (almost 3,000 words) and it features 16 photographs by Faisal! Read the whole interview and enjoy the photographs here: http://www.photographycorner.com/blo...erviews-fa1sal


6) "Noteworthy Notables"

For those that are relatively new to the Corner, the Noteworthy Notables have been a steadfast section here in the Corner Newsletter. It gives a brief run-down of the cool threads, new articles and blog posts, and other "worth checking out" stuff that has happened here on the Corner. Since we sort-of missed the newsletter last month (oops!), here's an extra long edition of Noteworthy Notables:

7) Looking Ahead

It's still summer time - the weather is warm, days are long (at least up here in the Northern Hemisphere), so it's hard to "look ahead" to autumn and winter. But it's always a fun time on the Corner when more and more people are dropping by. We've got some great new additions to the Corner Blog, more cool sponsors coming down the pipe. And, of course, there's the 2nd Annual Photograph of the Year contest to look forward to. Remember last year? $14,000+ in prizes? It'll be even bigger and better this year - last year was just practice. Enjoy what pre-September time you have left. Take lots of photos. Just make sure you get back to the Corner to share some with us, eh?



See you around the Corner,
