Canon's Project Imagin8ion - When You Find Me

About a year ago, Canon announced a collaboration with one of Hollywood’s most influential directors, Ron Howard, to select the 8 winners of the “Project Imagin8ion” contest from 96,262 submissions (some of which were from members of the Corner, no doubt). The contest challenged photographers to submit images based on a series of 8 separate movie themes to ultimately inspire a short film by Ron Howard. The film was shot using Canon dSLR products (obviously), and was just recently screened at the Sundance Film Festival.

Video Corner #9: Portrait Photography Tips

This “photography edition” (photography videos every Thursday, post-processing/photoshop videos every Monday - see this post for more details) of the “Video Corner” discusses how your lens choices impact your portraits. Short (wide) lenses can cause distortion and an unrealistic perspective, while longer (zoom) lenses have a narrower angle of view, which helps you avoid capturing too much of the background. In addition, longer lenses allow you to compose multiple shots from the same location.

Corner Compilation #1

There is a lot of news in the world of photography. When I started this blog, I subscribed to as many newsletters, rss feeds, press release sources, industry news, blogs, etc. as I could, so that, if it was happening in the photography industry, I would know about it and could, therefore, pass along all the good stuff to you. A month and a half later, I have 2,698 items sitting in my rss feed reader, which makes me about 2+ weeks behind on the news. Now, if I wanted to catch up, you’d end up having 25 posts a day for the next 3 days (assuming I spent all day posting on the blog, of course), and no one wants that - You don’t want to have to read 75 posts in three days any more than I want to write that many.
