Dgrin challenge winners

The Dgrin forum hosts regular photo contests. If you haven’t taken a look or participated, I highly recommend popping over and seeing what all the fuss is about.

I think I have blogged about the winning photos before, but there are a lot of new ones now… so it is worth a new post.

Here is the gallery.

Here are some samples:

Enjoy! (and participate!)

SmugMug Pro New Year's Resolutions

A new year is upon us. Let us resolve to:

  1. Improve our technique at time of shoot, so that we get the best possible image.
  2. Remember that photography is all about the light.
  3. Not post images for sale that are out of focus, too-dark, or otherwise flawed.
  4. Put our email addresses and contact info prominently on our SmugMug pages.
  5. Get a calibration print, and calibrate our monitors.
  6. Use Proof Delay, for happy customers and to avoid cropping woes.
  7. Let SmugMug’s Auto Color do the heavy lifting for great prints, if we can’t.
  8. Use keywords throughout our sites so that our customers and buyers can easily find us.
  9. Explore the many customization options available on SmugMug.
  10. Learn from peer SmugMug Pros and make more money in 2007.

So here’s to a Great 2007 for all of us!  What are your resolutions?
