1) Supporting the Corner

Obviously if you're reading this you are at least a 'mildly active' participant of the Corner. Maybe you read the blog, or post in the forums; maybe you just enter contests or use the free photo gallery space; maybe you just check out the fantastic photography and vote in the contests - or maybe you do all of the above. We're super glad that you're enjoying the site in whichever way suits you best. But obviously it takes time and money to keep a site this size running (over 18,000 accounts and hundreds of thousands of visitors each month!) - we recoup some of that via advertising (the contest sponsors and banner ads), and we have some support from our Premiere Members ( for more information on becoming a Premiere Member, check out www.photographycorner.com/premiere-membership ). You can also make a donation to PhotographyCorner to help keep this place running (go to the homepage and scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page). In the next couple of weeks, we're also going to sell a PhotographyCorner calendar (more updates on that coming to the Corner Blog soon) to help raise funds for the site. But even if you can't afford to become a Premiere Member, buy a calendar, or donate to the site, you can help in other ways. If you have a Twitter or Facebook account, or your own blog, do a little write-up about your favorite photography site - tell people how much you love the Corner. If a company is sponsoring a contest or purchasing ads, check them out - the more visitors and business these companies get, the more likely they'll be to continue to sponsor contests (and give you guys some great prizes!). But most of all, just continue to hang out and enjoy the Corner - share your photography and enjoy the photography of others. The more people we have around the Corner, the better and stronger this place will be. Thanks for helping build PhotographyCorner into the fantastic online photography destination that it is - thanks for supporting the Corner.


2) Sponsor: Tamron SP 70-300mm Di VC USD — Best-in-Class Tele Zoom

In the pursuit to achieve the most outstanding image resolution in the 70-300mm class, Tamron's 60th Anniversary lens - the SP 70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD (Model A005) - utilizes an advanced optical design that features an LD (Low Dispersion) and an XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) lens element made from specialized materials that prevent chromatic aberration. As a result, the SP 70-300mm Di VC USD boasts sharper contrast and greater descriptive performance than all others in its class. This is the first Tamron lens to sport USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive), Tamron’s very own ultrasonic auto-focus drive mechanism. This USD mechanism delivers fast focusing, making it a perfect telephoto zoom choice for photographing sports, racing, or other fast-moving subjects. The lens also boasts Tamron's proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization to assist in hand-held photography, not only at long focal length ranges where blurring is common, but also under low-lit conditions, dramatically enhancing photographic freedom. This combination of best in class image resolution, Ultrasonic Silent Drive and Vibration Compensation is a new achievement of Tamron technology, culminating in the production of a premium 70-300mm telephoto zoom lens. Winner of EISA Best Zoom Lens 2010-2011. Available for full-frame and APS-C sensor cameras in Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts (the latter without VC). $50 rebate thru 12/31/10. http://amzn.to/bIzl3U

7) 2011 Corner Calendar

A lot of you have been asking for something like this (either a calendar or a photo book), and it looks like we're finally going to make it happen (and if this goes well, look for us to try a book sometime in 2011). We took a survey (there's still time to weigh in if you haven't already: http://bit.ly/2011-Corner-Calendar-Survey ) and a lot of you said you're be interested in a Corner Calendar that will feature some of the most popular photographs from around the Corner over the past year. We're still putting final pricing details together, but all signs point toward it being a go. Make sure to keep an eye on the Corner Blog for details, as we're only going to do a limited run. Proceeds from the calendar sales will go to continue to support the Corner, and in return you'll have a beautiful calendar filled with amazing photographs by your favorite Corner photographers. Awesome photographs + supporting your favorite photography site + calendar = Best. Calendar. Ever.



See you around the Corner,
