1) Premiere Membership Sale and Free Prints

If you've been around the Corner for any length of time, you're well aware of the benefits of Premiere Membership. Premiere Members can participate in the Premiere Projects (where the winners of each project automatically get their photo entered into the Photograph of the Month contest), Premiere Members can nominate photographs for the Photograph of the Month contests, they have access to all the private forums, they're allowed larger image sizes and storage space in the Corner Photo Galleries, they win bigger prizes in the Photograph of the Month and Contest Corner Challenge contests, and a bunch more.

Right now, until the end of the month, you can become a Premiere Member for HALF PRICE! That's $39.50 for a Lifetime, Level I Premiere Membership or $64.50 for a Lifetime, Level II Premiere Membership (check out http://www.photographycorner.com/premiere-membership for the differences between Level I & II). But that's not all! The first 40 members to take advantage of this special HALF PRICE deal will also receive a $25-off coupon to Mpix.com - no strings attached! You can even apply the $25 coupon towards shipping! Support the Corner, get all the benefits of Premiere Membership, and get free prints (or anything else you can buy from Mpix.com). This deal is only good until the end of the month. Click here to become a Premiere Member: http://www.photographycorner.com/forum/payments.php


2) Sponsor: B&H Photo

B&H Photo is one of the largest and most trusted retailers of photography gear on the planet. If you need photo gear, B&H probably has it, and at a competitive price. As you'll find out below, we've added a bunch of new resources to the Corner Resource Center over the past month. Two of those resources are reviews of the new Lensbaby Composer and the Lowepro Nova 180 AW Shoulder Bag.

The Lowepro Nova 180 AW Shoulder Bag is a sturdy and functional camera bag that has the capacity to hold a professional dSLR with a lens attached (24-105mm f/4L) plus 3-4 additional lenses (up to 105mm f/2.8; 18-200mm f/3.5; 70-300mm f/4.5); 2 memory cards and a flash unit. Buy the Lowepro Nova 180 AW Shoulder Bag from B&H Photo today: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search...ch=yes/BI/5175

The Lensbaby Composer is a fantastic addition to the Lensbaby family of selective focus lenses. It's easier to use, more versitile and sports their new Optic Swap System. Whether youíre a professional photographer or an amateur, Iím positive youíll find that the Lensbaby Composer, while not an every day lens, will make a great addition to your camera bag. Youíll be surprised how often it manages to make itself out of the bag and onto your camera. Pick up a Lensbaby Composer from B&H Photo: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/buy/Co...081753/BI/5175

7) Tutorials, Articles and Reviews - Oh My!

As you've undoubtedly noticed, there's an inordinate number of new resources in this newsletter. In addition, the "Around the Forums in 30 Days" section is no where to be found. Over the past month, I've been catching up on submitted resources by editing and posting them to the Corner Resource Center. In the past 4 weeks we've posted 2 dozen new resources, and we have a couple dozen left to go. We're half way there. I figured there's enough "stuff" to read in this newsletter, so we'll bring back the "Around the Forums in 30 Days" section once we've caught up on the resources. Of course, if you want to keep me busy, I'd love for you to submit articles, tutorials and product reviews for me to add to the Corner Resource Center. Have an idea for an article, tutorial or product review? Reply to this email and we'll get you started. The more resources we create and share, the better photographers we'll all become. And really, that's the whole point of this community, isn't it?



See you around the Corner,
