50267_212390481451_425333_n.jpgWe are once again proud to receive recognition from one of our fellow bloggers. Dawn Sievers of Authentic Bloggers (among other groups) selected us as one of her five spotlight blogs. Dawn's blog  Healing Morning is always a great read and one in which I always keep an eye out. You see Dawn does not post every day or even every week. She only posts when she has something that she feels is important to say. So I am even more honored that she selected our blog. Go check out Healing Morning, I know you will find it an interesting read. Dawn is also the administrator for Authentic Blogger, a community site for promoting blogs. If you haven't already, check it out and list your blog.

We have added a new feature to our blog this week, a Reader Feedback section. Here you can give us suggestions for what you would like to see us cover on our blog. You can find it on the right left side of our blog. We have also added a translator gadget that will translate our blog into nine different languages.

Last month, we had a tutorial on photographing a bride and groom with our Xenon Flashlight:  There were comments on and emails about purchasing it.  It is now available on our Amazon Carousel which is on our blog to the left of the postings.

I did not have to put much thought into our Honor Roll of the Month Selection. If you're a wedding/ portraiture photographer as we are, you know the name David Ziser and his blog DigitalProTalk at  I read it each day and I am always learning from it. In all honesty, that is where I first heard about the Xenon Flashlight.

David is an internationally renowned portraiture and wedding photographer and has shared his knowledge in five languages and in 14 countries worldwide. He is one of the leading trainers in the industry for more then 20 years. His Digital Wakeup Tour is acclaimed as one of the best seminars ever on digital photography. I attended it and can attest to that. In July of 2007, David launched  DigitalProtalk : a blog dedicated to the aspiring professional photographer looking to enhance his/her photography. Readership continues to grow and is in excess of 110,000 page views per month. David is also one of 98 people worldwide who holds the distinguished honor of Fellow, bestowed by the American Society of Photographers.

I cannot recommend a blog more highly then his. If you get a chance to see his tour, do yourself a favor and go. You will learn while being entertained. Even if you're not  a pro, you will still learn and enjoy his blog , his books and his seminars. In private emails, I have recommended his blog and now as our Honor Roll of the Month, I do the same.
Visit, learn and enjoy and I know you will become a regular reader of DIGITALPRO TALK

David's book, Captured by the Light, is an essential guide to creating wonderful wedding images. It's also available on the Amazon Carousel on our web page.
