Wow - you are inundating me with your food shots -- it's great! I'll continue to post them until early next week, so if you haven't sent in your best food shot yet, just do so by emailing it to

By the way ...

I should have told you all this earlier: When you send in your photos like this, send me large, hi-res versions. I post horizontals in the Flash galleries at 1024 pixels wide; send me verticals at the same width -- I can resize them. As for the resolution: Send them in at the highest you have out of your camera, preferably 300 dpi. I reduce them to 72 dpi for web publication (the resolution of PC monitors), but if I offer any to the Globe for print, they need hi-res versions.

Back to the Food photos: A very good food blogger and photographer from Quebec offered to write some food photography tips for you -- look for that early next week.

Contest update: Melissa Robotti and I are meeting Sunday night to go over your December contest choices so she can narrow the field to the Top 10. I'll post those on Monday (yes, I know it's a holiday. I live to serve you.)

Finally, Kati Seiffer has done another On Assignment essay. She went on one of those PhotoWalks in downtown Boston (specifically, Beacon Hill) -- that'll be posted soon as well.

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?...
