From the Canon Digital Learning Center:
by Eric Stoner
In my last article “Top Tips for Small Product Photography” I shared with you some very simple techniques and ideas centered around making your product photography stand out from the pack. Whether you’re selling your products online or in person, it’s helpful to have great product photos. The problem for many is that hiring a professional photographer to do this type of work can be costly, time consuming and even more importantly, the final images may not convey your artistic vision. So the old adage of “if you want something done right, do it yourself” comes into play.
The focus of my last article was predominantly based on the premise of using natural light to illuminate your product. It’s free and you can accomplish a lot by simply using window light and reflectors.
This time around I want to expand your palette by introducing flash into the mix. There are several advantages to using flash over window light including the ability to work just about anywhere, anytime and shape the light in limitless ways to enhance your product. There’s no need to rely on daylight so for those of you who “burn the midnight oil,” this is a perfect option for you. In addition, using flash will significantly reduce the chance of blur from camera shake and with the wireless flash options that exist in the Canon system and a plethora of light modifiers available, you’ve got plenty of opportunity to be creative with your lighting.

Earlier than ever, you are being bombarded with Christmas ads. There is a reason for this and the day after Thanksgiving is called Black Friday for a reason. Retailers rely heavily on the strong Christmas shopping season sales surge that occurs at this time of the year and we want to take a moment to remind you that starting your shopping with the links on this site is what provides the much-needed support needed to keep us here serving you.
For example, click on any of the site's B&H links and buy a camera, lens, TV or ... anything. Or, click on an Amazon link and buy a case of diapers. Using the links costs you nothing extra, but provides the valuable support necessary to keep us working for you. We are very grateful for that support and count it a privilege to work for you!
I'll again share my now-annual warning: Many of products shown in the sales flyers and/or emails you will receive or have already received are not going to be great deals. Just because a picture of an item along with a price does not mean that the item is a great deal.
Before jumping on these "deals", always first check the price at B&H, Adorama, Amazon or any of the other reputable retailers included on the Support the Site page. You might be pleasantly surprised to see the price you find. Most of the online retailers we work with have already started their Black Friday deals and many very good deals are currently available. You will find the links to these deals on the retailer's home pages and the deals we have shared on the news feed are worth reviewing.
Shop online and skip the line. You will have more time to spend with family and friends and, of course, more time to spend behind the camera. Get started now and thanks for your continued support!

One of the first accessories I purchase after investing in a new lens is a UV or clear protection filter. That's why I'm always happy to see a free, high quality UV filter bundled with a lens on my wish list.
On that note, B&H is offering a free Hoya 82mm UV Haze NXT HMC Filter ($68.90 value) with purchase of the Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD Lens. Also nice is that the lens currently qualifies for a $200.00 mail-in rebate which makes its final price extremely attractive in the general purpose lens category, especially considering this lens' wide f/2.8 maximum aperture and the inclusion of Vibration Control.

From Nikon:
Nikon’s Annual Ranking Lists Michigan as Top Spot with Most Number of Stunning Foliage Photos, Besting Last Year’s Winner, New York
MELVILLE, NY – Today, Nikon announced Michigan (#NikonFallMI) as this year’s top spot for stunning images of fall foliage. The results were based on thousands of submissions on Nikon’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter channels, which invited passionate photographers to submit creative and colorful fall images of their state’s most beautiful locations and landscapes.
During the nationwide campaign, Nikon received more than 8,000 entries from participants across the country, as photographers who love their state contributed to a dynamic collection of America’s most gorgeous Autumn landscapes from coast to coast. Images ranged from the fiery glow of the Sycamore trees of the West to the striking bright yellow Birch trees found in the serene forests of the East.
“The beautiful fall colors and changing of the leaves offer Americans from all states unique opportunities to capture stunning scenes from the great outdoors,” said Lisa Baxt, Associate General Manager of Communications, Nikon Inc. “After a fantastic response to last year’s campaign, we were determined to once again encourage people to get outside, capture, and share images that reflect both the beauty of the season and participants’ state pride.”
Michigan earned top honors for 2016 with more than 1,600 photos submitted through various social media channels. The most remarkable photos that were shared exhibited Michigan’s stunning hills, warm inviting parks and the Great Lakes contrasted against bright reds and blazing oranges. The vibrant submissions embody the goal of the program, which encouraged people to capture the best of autumn from every state.
After being named top spot for fall foliage last year, New York (#NikonFallNY) was this year’s runner up and showcased a diverse array of beautiful images spanning from Central Park to the Adirondacks. Pennsylvania (#NikonFallPA) and North Carolina (#NikonFallNC) tied for third in this year’s campaign, as both states offered creative images of breathtaking landscapes, serene waterfalls, scenic beaches, and epic highways to crystal-clear lakes with incredible and colorful reflections.
To view of all the submissions on Instagram and Twitter, search the hashtag #NikonFall followed by the state’s abbreviation (e.g. #NikonFallMI). On Facebook, visit www.facebook.com/NikonUSA to view the fall foliage submissions.
