From Photoshelter:
 
Crowdfunding your personal project can seem daunting and overwhelming, but with the right strategy and tactics you can reach your goal. In our upcoming webinar we'll talk with award-winning photojournalists Scott Strazzante and Christopher Capozziello about their recent Kickstarter victories, both of which funded personal projects that hit very close to home for the two of them.
 
Hear what these two learned throughout the course of running their Kickstarter campaigns, what they would do differently the second time around, and more. In this candid discussion both Scott and Chris will speak to:

  • Why they chose crowdfunding over other options
  • Marketing their Kickstarters and tier prize creation
  • Tactics for a solid social media marketing strategy
  • Self-publishing vs traditional publishing
  • The viability of crowdfunding as a sustainable channel for photographers

Join us for this webinar and begin mapping out how to fund your next big project.

UV Protection Filter
Welcome to filter week at The-Digital-Picture.com. I have been revamping the site's lens filter reviews and to get things started, let's talk about lens protection filters.
 
There is a big debate over the practice of using a protective filter on your lens and the reasoning behind both sides of the argument has merit. Get my opinion and much more is found in the new UV protection filter review.
 
A UV filter review is not new to the site, but instead of having a review page for each filter size with pages most pointing back to the 77mm UV filter review for complete information, I have consolidated all of the UV filter reviews to one completely-rewritten page. Links to make finding the right filter in the size you need are now presented at the end of the review.
 
Jump over to our Facebook page and give us your take on the protection filter issue.

Due to travel this weekend, I won't be able to create the YouTube version of the Weekend Recap this week. However, here's the abridged text-only version:
 
In the news...
 
On Tuesday, Adobe took the wraps off of Photoshop Elements 12 and Premiere Elements 12. Photoshop Elements 12 now features Content-Aware Move, a Straighten Tool, and Guided Edits, while Premiere Elements 12 added Motion Tracking, music scores and new sound effects.
 
In Site News and Reviews...
 
On Monday, Bryan added 40 additional sample pictures to the site. The gear used for the sample images is as diverse as the subject matter. Check out the image captions for helpful hints.
 
On Wednesday, Bryan published his first looks at the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens image quality results. The good news? The lens seems to be performing significantly better than its predecessor on the long end of the focal length range.
 
And for our Deal of the Week...
 
On Monday, we posted an eBay deal from BigValueInc where you could get a Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR camera for only $2,549.99 [auction has ended]. That's a $949.00 off the normal, retail price.
