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.
Each month we will select one User Group that has been exceptional in their communication with meeting updates, giveaway requests and book reviews and ask them to share some insights and tips with us. This week, we turn the spotlight on the the South Bay Photography Meetup Group as our last UG of the Month for 2012!

So why the heck did we decide to introduce a new camera-specific photography series—From Snapshots to Great Shots? The market already has series that provide a fairly complete tour of the buttons, modes, and options on the most popular DSLRs. And Peachpit certainly doesn't practice a "throw it on the wall and see what sticks" me-too approach to publishing. Instead, the idea for the series grew slowly and thoughtfully from the seeds of a real need: Our readers and authors—all creative people—told us they wanted to see exemplary images reproduced as large as possible. And that they wanted those images deconstructed by pros so they can get similarly outstanding shots.
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.
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. As you might expect, he's also shot a ton of commercial and personal work. Over that time, Joe has accumulated an immense collection of stories. With The Moment It Clicks, now released and on its way to a bookstore near you, Joe passes these stories on to readers.
Today I discovered our Flickr group made up of photographers who have used Scott Kelby’s 7-point System for Adobe Photoshop CS3 to improve their photos. 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!
