Canon 5D Mark II with Jim Rose

Jim Rose from Canon U.S.A. has received his sample EOS 5D Mark II and will answer any remaining questions about Canon’s latest DSLR.

Political Photography Part II: Jared Polis for Congress

For the past week, I have been in Colorado documenting the final week of Jared Polis’ campaign for a congressional seat in Colorado’s District 2. Following up on last month’s presentation by Mona Brooks, I will share my favorite photos and stories from the election trail. You can view photos of my trip following Congressman-elect Jared Polis on my SmugMug gallery.

For those who are more technically — rather than politically — inclined, I’ll also discuss equipment, what worked and what didn’t work, and what I’d do over had I the chance!

Gadget: What Would You Invent?

We’ve had presentations in the past from COBA members about their favorite gadget, but what about those gadgets that have yet to be invented? We’ll spend the evening discussing what we would love to have in our cameras, in our bags, and on our computers. Who knows, perhaps one day someone — or even you — will invent it!

SmugMug Monthly Contest

I completely forgot what this month’s photo contest will be, so for November, just bring the best photo you’ve taken in the past 30 days. The winner of the most popular photo will get a free 1-year Pro SmugMug subscription.
