Had some coffee and vanilla tea with photo judge Melissa Robotti last night as she chose the Top 10 finalists in the December 'Tis the Season contest, and reviewed your votes as she made her choices. I'm in the process of putting that entry together now and will post it as soon as I'm done.

It was interesting to hear her thought process as she made her choices. She clearly was looking for good composition as well as creativity. It was important to her that a photo reflected a lot of thought on the part of the photographer and was more than just a snapshot. You'll hear more from her when I post the winning photos.


The January "Cold" contest is going great guns ... we already have 124 entries, and quick scan of the photos doesn't reveal multiple uploads, as we've had in past contests. This could be our biggest month ever! The weather certainly is helping with this theme, isn't it? I might kill the Black & White theme for February and make it Black & Blue instead (I fell on some ice in my backyard this morning ... ouch!).

If you haven't entered the January contest yet, read more about it here. We've also opened the February contest.

Also stay tuned for more Food photos, a food photography tipsheet, and a list of local food blogs. And another On Assignment is on its way. Busy week!

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
An essay about Rebirth Workshops
Now that it's been several months since I returned from a week-long Rebirth Workshop in Mississippi, I'm happy to look back and provide an overview of what we did that made it such an intense experience for me as a photographer....
Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
