Hi all! Every month in our Photography newsletter, we feature the work of a new photographer who has contributed to our Photography Newsletter Flickr Group. This month in honor of Presidents Day, we decided to feature 4 talented photographers, some old, some new, whose photos fit our patriotic theme. The photos: "The Eagle Has Landed” by Allentown, NJ-based photographer Mark Krajnak, “Up Close and Personal” by Shane Abbitt of Ankeny, IA, “Washington D.C. at Night” by Scott Fracasso of Ashburn, VA, and Wendy Nuttall’s “2013 01 29 Bald Eagle BC 122 (11)” who is currently shooting in Grindrod, British Columbia.

When author, teacher, and creative photographer Chris Orwig told me the story of his Brooks' students complaining about not having a shooting subject that grabbed them, I wanted to be transported to his classroom on the spot.
In a recent blog post, author and photographer David duChemin asked his loyal followers, “If you do not shoot vocationally but perhaps have been thinking about it, what is that number one question that keeps you up at night, or about which you just really wish you had some wisdom on?” As David’s publisher, I suggest that before you answer, you read his book, Within the Frame: The Journey of Photographic Vision. There is so much wisdom within its pages and images, it will change the way you think—and the way you work.
Every January we start to wonder, ‘Was Scott Kelby the No. 1 bestselling computer book author last year again?"
For the past thirty years, acclaimed photographer Joe McNally has spent most of his time shooting assignments for magazines such as Time, Life, Sports Illustrated, and National Geographic.

With The Moment It Clicks, now released and on its way to a bookstore near you, Joe passes these stories on to readers.

The group already has 342 members at this writing, and there are numerous side-by-side, before-and-after photos. It’s very clear that Scott’s techniques easy to follow, and more important, they work like magic!
