Special Weekend Edition

So much has been going on this week that I just haven’t had time to fit everything into my posts over the last few days. So, to carry you through the weekend – as though you didn’t have enough to do with the holiday season in full swing – I thought I’d throw up a bonus post with few things that have either come up or have fallen through the cracks.

After the jump, you’ll learn more about a fun new item from Scott Kelby, the next source image for the Points of View Photo Project, and more!First off, head over to Friend-of-the-Blog Scott Kelby’s Photoshop Insider blog for a new set of t-shirts and mugs he has designed for off-camera flash users. 100% of the profits will go to support the Springs of Hope Kenya orphanage that Scott and his readers have adopted as their own.

You can select from any of 4 different versions to be printed on a number of styles and colors of men’s and women’s shirts or even on a coffee mug.

We are in the season of giving and what better cause to give towards than one that helps feed and house children? So head on over to Scott’s special CafePress store today to get yours and help raise money for a very special place.

If you don’t want a shirt or mug but would still like to help out, please visit the Springs of Hope Kenya website to donate.

Next on our list is the source image for week #20 of the Points of View Photo Project. Usually I post it along with the previous week’s gallery but it was getting late when I was putting it together the other night and I let it slide.

So for next Friday, the 18th, our source image will is:

Points of View Photo Project - Source Image #20

To participate in the project, all you have to do is download the straight-out-of-the-camera image above, process it however you like, and send it back to me at pov@jasondmoore.com by Thursday 12/17/09 by 8pm (Eastern).

This isn’t a contest, there are no prizes, it is just an opportunity to flex your creative muscles and to see how many different digital artists interpret a common starting image.

The Points of View Project isn’t a contest, however, my regular Monthly Photo Contest is live and we’re accepting entries now! As with every month, the December Photo Contest is an open contest with no set themes or other requirements. I’m just looking for the best photo out of the bunch and the winner will receive a cool prize.

Each person can enter up to 3 photos and entries must be received by Midnight (Eastern) on December 21st to be considered. For full contest details, and to learn about this month’s prize, head on over to our Monthly Photo Contest page now!

Well, that’s it for now. I hope you all enjoy your weekend! And I look forward to seeing your contributions to the project and your entries into the contest!
