Wait a Minute ...

support

10 December 2012

It would almost always catch us by surprise. We'd advance the film on our Nikon FM2 only to find out we'd already taken the last shot.

Sometimes that happens in life, too.

After 13 years as the editor of the Imaging Resource Newsletter, we have parted ways. It's going one way, we're going another.

We wish the company well and remain grateful for the opportunity to discuss our passion for getting the picture with each reader who welcomed such a long email every two weeks in their inbox.

But as we used to tell our (usually) patient subject when we realized we had to put a new roll of film in the camera, "Wait a minute!"

Because we aren't done yet.

And this publication is our way of continuing to discuss our passion for getting the picture. We have several reviews in progress, covering tablet software, new image editing software for the desktop, LED lighting and more.

And this is where you'll be able to read about it.

So we hope you'll join us as we publish here at Photo Corners. If you like the idea, support us with a sponsorship or a subscription. Both come with some benefits right away and more to follow.
