Win Some Great Digital Photography Books in our New Forums

Win Some Great Digital Photography Books in our New Forums

Logo BlueWelcome to the new look Digital Photography School.

As I mentioned in my previous post – we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to improve both the look and functionality of the site. I hope you enjoy exploring it and discover some of the tips and tutorials in the archives that you might not have previously discovered.

As part of our relaunch today we’re launching purpose built Digital Photography School Forums.

These were set up at the request of many readers who had previously enjoyed (but felt limited by) our Flickr discussion group.

The new forums are now live and I’d like to invite you to register as a member and get involved in the discussions, assignments and learning that is happening there. We’ve already got over 40 people registered who have been helping me test the forums and there are already more than 25 discussion threads happening.

As a reward for those readers who sign up and become active members (read on for what this means) I’m going to be offering some prizes.

11 random active members of the forum will receive some great photography books.

One active member will win their choice of 5 of the following digital photography books

Ten active members will win their choice of 1 of the following digital photography books

  1. 1. The Digital Photography Book by Scott Kelby
  2. 2. Understanding Exposure: How to Shoot Great Photographsby Bryan Peterson
  3. 3. Digital SLR Pro Secrets by David Busch
  4. 4. Complete Digital Photography by Ben Long
  5. 5. Perfect Digital Photography by Jay Dickman
  6. 6. The Complete Guide to Night and Low-Light Photography by Lee Frost
  7. 7. Digital Macro Photography by Ross Hoddinott
  8. 8. Mastering Digital SLR Photography by David Busch
  9. 9. Photoshop Finishing Touches by Dave Cross
  10. 10. The Photoshop Channels Book by Scott Kelby

To be eligible you need to meet two conditions.

  1. Firstly you need to be a registered member of the forums
  2. Secondly you need to have made at least 5 genuine posts/comments in the forums before the end of the year. By ‘genuine’ I mean comments that actually contribute in some way (ie not spammy comments). They could be an introduction in the techniques area, an answer to someone else’s question.

You’ve got 15 or so days to make your 5 comments to be in the running so there is no real rush – simply surf the forums, be yourself and respond to what you see others writing and you’ll be fine.

In the first week of January I’ll contact and announce the winners.

I hope you’ll consider coming and joining the fun in our new forums.

    This is definitely a clean, crisp and direct setup you have here. Should help with moving quickly between different groups. Have enjoyed your suggestions, ideas over the past few months. Best of luck. Will comment on digi. with the Canon 30D and 580EX flash. What a world it is, that is trying to adjust to this system versus the 300D (US) with the 420EX. Keep up the good work!

U have been my one and only teacher right from the first day i bought my (serious)camera which is 2 months ago. check the blog religiously everyday and i have improved a whole lot in 2 months! Thanks for everything!

    Thank You for the invite Darren. Good Luck with this site. I will try, with my very limited knowledge to be an active member. May look more than I talk, but learning daily. Thanks again.

  • Michael December 15, 2006 12:51 pm

    I really like the upgrade.

  • Ron Page December 15, 2006 11:50 am

    Great new design on the site. Looking forward to all that it has to offer, as I have a fairly new Nikon 8800 and haven't even scratched the surface on what it can do. Can't wait to get started and thirsting for the knowledge you offer. I'm recommending this site to a friend who is starting photography in junior college as well. Again, congrats on the new design ed site, its great.

    thanks for the feedback. We''re still getting the comments section all worked out - you'll see a few more tweaks over the coming days in different areas.

    Glad you're enjoyin it Hsien :-)

  • Hsien Lei December 15, 2006 10:04 am

    Congratulation on the new design, Darren! :) I've been learning so much here and you've even got me hankering for a DSLR camera which I never thought I'd want. Thank you!

    Hey there,

    Excellent work on the new site design! Frankly it's inspiring, I've never thought to use shades of blue with black, white and grey in that way.

    Just so you know, this comment box overflows the container div in Firefox 2, and the center-aligned name, mail and website inputs are misaligned - perhaps this is intentional, but it looks a little weird.

    Thanks for inspiring me and making me 10x the photographer I was before I discovered your site,

    The " joining the fun in our new forums." link is wrong; right now it's "" (just an image).
