As 2010 gets underway, I am trying to take a proactive approach to the blogging (writing further in advance of blog posts) and podcasting (recording further in advance) outlets.  To do so, means that for a couple weeks or so now, I have been getting the blog posts up later in the day, and on a few occasions, no blog post at all.

When you don’t see a blog post, it means I am hard at work at my regular job, and then taking time after that to research, write, and contact people for things like the monthly giveaways, podcast participants, and much more.  With that in mind, I am ready to go on a pretty long stream here now of blog posts, giveaways and podcasts with various people in the industry.  But, at this point, you know what would be really helpful from the readership?  YOUR THOUGHTS!

I have three questions for you to consider between now and the end of February:

What types of content do you want to see on the blog? (Articles, subject matter, tips and tricks, videos, photos, techniques, etc.)

What types of prizes would you like to see in the giveaways? (Be realistic – Adobe Photoshop CS4, SLR cameras, and the like are likely out of my league…unless Adobe, Canon, Nikon, Pentax, and others are reading this and interested in becoming a vendor contributor [psst…email me: jason <AT> canonblogger <DOT> com]…)

Who would you like to hear from besides me talking on the podcast?  (Again, be realistic.  People like Scott Kelby, Joe McNally, and other industry heavyweights are not likely to be available – although you coulda knocked me over with a feather when David DuChemin agreed to come on a show…)

Thanks in advance, and I’l look forward to your comments here on the blog and to me via email.  Have a great weekend, happy shooting, and we’ll see you back here again on Monday!

  1. I think it would be awesome if you had Kerry Garrison and/or Sir David Esquire on the show. 🙂 Maybe they’d be willing to offer some of their Lightroom plug-ins as prizes as well!

    Others that would be fun to listen to;

    – Lisa Bettany (
    – Nicole Young (

    As for prizes, A Flickr Pro account might be a nice touch. I think Nik Software should sponsor you and offer their software as a prize! Maybe a theme set up? (I know some of those can be expensive though).

  2. I would love to hear about lenses 85mm vs the 24-70L, fisheye etc . I would also love to hear you talk about “how to get crisp images” , I would love to hear talk about getting the photo correct SOOC first and foremost and would love to hear talk about processing in CS4 and Light room. Basic Editing to amazing editing and creative editing ie: textures. I am learning and have so much to learn and am just not happy with my photography, as I battle with getting it correct SOOC, post processing, and getting those crisp sharp images and understanding where to put my AF point when everyone is spread out, etc. I just found your blog and am anxious to look around and check it out!!! Great to meet you!!!
