Okay, you hardy New Englanders -- time to clean your sensors and charge your videocam batteries: we're counting on you once again to help us document the severity and extent of the storm that's about to land on our doorstep.

Here are some suggestions, illustrated by your photos from the recent blizzard:

1. Show the severity of the storm without putting yourself in danger.

2. Show how deep the snow is in your area. You don't have to drop your kid into a snowdrift up to his eyeballs, but use some other object, such as a car or patio furniture, to provide some context for the snow.

3. Photograph or videotape something unusual. You may have read that the Charles River turned a weird yellow color during the last blizzard. A few MIT and Cambridge folks submitted photos of it to our last snowstorm gallery, and the Globe reprinted two of them in the paper -- including the one below. So keep your eyes open!

4. Make 'em laugh. There's something absurd about the weather in these parts, and maintaining a sense of humor as these storms wallop us sometimes is the only way to get through them.

5. Find the beauty in the storm. Enough said.

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?...
