Well, we got the release of our new online photography magazine, Shadow & Light, out of the way. The next release will be for the paid issues, which will be at the first of November. We will also be accepting subscriptions, at that time. You can still receive the first issue FREE by clicking on the “Home” tab where you will find complete instructions (with pictures, even!). You can also subscribe on that page for a reduced rate. (do not click on the “Subscribe” button to the right of this post)
To date we have had 1,392 views, which relate to how many times people visited the download site. There have been 347 downloads of Shadow & Light, including 37 subscriptions purchased. We have also had many positive comments about the content. Thanks to all of you who downloaded and subscribed. It is very much appreciated!

In a very short time we will be adding a new feature to RedDogNews.com. Our friends over at ThinkTank Photo have agreed to let us borrow content from their new “Ask the Pros” column.
“Ask the Pros” features luminaries from all fields of professional photography. They include David Burnett (named one of the “100 Most Important People in Photography”), Pulitzer-winning photojournalists Al Diaz, Deanne Fitzmaurice (pictured), and Vince Laforet, photojournalist, member of VII Photo, and a National Geographic contributor Ed Kashi, street photographer Alex Coghe, architectural and design photographers Dallas Dahms and Mike Kelley, digital innovator and eclectic shooter Falcon, photography publisher Jose Atunes, documentary and humanitarian photographers Ziv Koren, Melissa Lyttle and Ami Vitale, and commercial photographer Nathan Pask.
One of the photographers featured is Think Tank co-founder, photojournalist Deanne Fitzmaurice. In helping conceive of the column, she noted, “It’s fascinating how just one insight can emancipate a photographer. By posing the same question to these photography luminaries, who come from such different perspectives, ‘Ask the Pros’ surrounds the answer with an immense amount of knowledge learned the hard way. Our hope is that the richness and depth of their answers will accelerate your learning curve.” (from the ThinkTank intro)
This is a great group of professionals who are at the top of their game, with a few Pulitzer prize winners among them. In the future we will incorporate selected comments from this column, with a link back to ThinkTank to read the complete answers to submitted questions.
