Sharing your work with your clients, Iceland & more
As we're getting more daylight to work with on the northern hemisphere, we are digging into this weeks trove of new articles. Since our last newsletter we're having two new episodes out of Russel's Iceland travel report, while Connie thinks about what judges do in photo competitions.
We have made it easier for you to share your work with clients using private albums with ZIP downloads (more info below), and for the studio photographers in the community, Martin finalizes his series on shooting the $2 million image, this time discussing post-processing and DAM systems.
I am wishing you a great rest of the week and, let there be lots of good and inspiring light in front of your lens.

In this second part of his five part series, Russell Whittemore (rosewood_ltd), takes us from Reykjavik to Grundarfjodur and Kirkjufell, via Hraunfossar. A must-read with lots of tips for anyone interested in landscape, travel photography or the beauty of Iceland. Read the article
Sharing your work with your clients
We have improved the way you can share images with clients using albums in the galleries. As a Platinum or Gold member you can create private albums. Enable the "Allow ZIP downloads" for an album to allow visitors to download either individual images or all of the images in the album at once. You and your client can use the chat/comment area of an image to discuss it and when your client makes a new comment, it will show under the "heart menu" at Nikonians. Your client can use the "heart icon" and also rate images, if you have enabled that.
Private albums are password protected and the system automatically sets one for you. You can easily change the password of an album.
Images uploaded to the galleries can now be up to 100MB each.
When a forum post contains an embedded video, we are now showing a small thumbnail in the topic list indicating that a video is included.
The March contests are open:
Wildlife: Beak & Talon / Fang & Claw
Landscape: Beautiful Cityscapes
Macro & Close-Up: Vintage
Travel: Roadside Attractions
Digital Artistry: Liquid
Last call for the 19th ANPAT in the Spring. Don't miss the opportunity to photograph the largest bird migration in the US and more. More info
