The contest for our tutorial How To Become A Commercial Wedding Photographer just came to a close an hour ago, and the final 3 winners have been randomly picked.

Sorry for the delay (holiday season tends to do that, as you can probably understand), but we are ready to announce the winner of the Lowepro Bag giveaway! We saw a lot of hopeless, sad and some of them downright confusing, entries to this contest, and judging it was a tough call. We're going to show you a few of our favorites, but to pick a winner Lowepro chose to select someone who made the most out of their bag-less situation.
We were talking with our good friends over at Lowepro, and decided to sneak in one more contest before Christmas. We're giving away Pro Roller Lite 150 AW, Pro Messenger 160 AW and a Lens Exchange 200 AW to one Fstoppers reader who needs them dearly. That's $570 worth of gear! Basically, we wanted to have you covered in any situation you might come across in the world of photography. To win, you just have to show us how bad your bag situation really is.
Do you wish your strap was more comfortable? Still using that uncomfortable strap that came with your camera? Well our friends at JOBY have launched a new camera strap line including the revolutionary UltraFit Sling Strap and the 3-Way Camera Strap. The comfortable UltraFit Sling Strap allows fast access to every shot and hands free-stability when on the move.
We have teamed up with PremiumBeat.com to give away what may be the most anticipated video camera of 2012, the Blackmagic Cinema Camera.

SmugMug is celebrating its 10th birthday, and want you to partake in the festivities by giving away a year of SmugMug Pro (awesome website/portfolio hosting service) and a copy of Lightroom 4 (the best combination photo editing and photography workflow program) for either PC or Mac! We have extended the deadline until tomorrow, so get your entries in!
Sorry for the delay in making this announcement everyone, but we have a winner! It was a closely fought contest that had oscillated among leaders, but in the end 32% of you chose the very unique and quite spectacular image from Linhbergh Weddings! Great job, I'll bet the client was very happy.
