1) 2011 Corner Calendar

You asked for it, and finally we're going to make it happen. This year, we're releasing the first ever PhotographyCorner.com calendar featuring dozens of photos from the Corner's favorite photographers. We've got most of the photographs lined up (photo releases and all), and we're working on putting it all together. Mpix.com has graciously offered to print them for us, so other than shipping costs, the proceeds from each calendar sale will go to directly to supporting the Corner. The calendars (we're only doing a limited run) will go on sale for Premiere Members (at a $2 discount/calendar) on Friday, November 5th, and the remaining calendars will go on sale to the rest of the community (and beyond) on Monday, November 8th. These calendars are looking fantastic, and will make great stocking stuffers. Get all the details on the calendars and pricing here: http://www.photographycorner.com/blo...ndar-is-coming


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

8) Premiere Projects

If you're already a Premiere Member, you're probably already addicted to the Premiere Projects. Every couple of weeks, Nikon_Mario issues a theme, and Premiere Members go and take a photo based on the theme (same sort of idea as the Contest Corner Challenges). With the Premiere Projects, however, there are no prizes to be had... though most would argue, what you get from participating is far more valuable: feedback. Once you've taken your photo, you post it up in the Premiere Projects thread, and DOZENS of photographers give you direct feedback on your photograph, and how you could improve it (or if it's totally awesome, they'll tell you how totally awesome it is). Many participants have named the Premiere Projects as one of the things that best helps them improve as photographers. There are, of course, other benefits to Premiere Membership (better prizes, discounts, coupons, the ability to nominate photographs, bigger gallery space, custom rank titles, etc), but access to the Premiere Projects consistently list as one of the top benefits to Premiere Membership. Not yet a Premiere Member? Become one today: http://www.photographycorner.com/premiere-membership It's a great way to support the Corner and improve your skills as a photographer at the same time.



See you around the Corner,
