My trumpet player made the cover of "The Instrumentalist"

...this was a surprise, at least them contacting me! I do alot of this genre of photography (marching bands, drum corps, all types of pageantry) 160k-plus images up on Smugmug, and the moms even buy some...heh. The Instrumentalist is a monthly publication that lands on the desk of virtually every band director in the country, so I was very honored to be asked to use my work for their cover. I'm a bit late on this posting, only because I've only recently discovered the "other" facets of the 'Hog...this is a great site! I've included the cover itself (forgive, taken with phonecam) and the original...the watermark action is there because I'm lazy, heh...I know I could've gotten rid of 'em...

Excellent! Well done.
Interesting how the editor softened the background red to enhance your subject.

That's cool. Did they pay you or was it for a public service?

Yes, they did a great job. My phone pic doesn't do it justice.

I've just now discovered this area of UHH too and am delighted to have found it. What a wonderful photo you made and an excellent choice by the editor to use it as their cover image. Congratulations! Was it discovered from your Smugmug post?

I *think* he (the editor in charge of the cover) found it on my SM site, yes. I'm out there in that activity a little bit, although pretty much SoCal for the band pageantry(www,marchingpix.com if you're interested in a whole bunch of that stuff...lol)...thanks for the props, Forest...this IS a wonderful, and very *involved,* forum!
