Welcome to the new and improved www.JasonDMoore.com!

After a lot of reflection, self-examination, and hard work I am pleased to relaunch my website with a new-found sense of direction and drive. I am being much more intentional about focusing on my graphic and web design work and how I go about offering those services to individuals, businesses and not-for-profit organizations as I move forward with my freelancing.

The Results Are In! October 2010 Photo Contest

This has been a special month for the photo contest here on the blog. Not only did I have the good fortune to team up with NAPP to get a sweet prize from my friend Matt Kloskowski, Matt served as our guest judge this go ’round! Thank you to everyone over at NAPP for the generous donation of the prize and a huge thank you to Matt for taking the time to go through and judge this month’s entries!

I know it was a hard decision, as it always is, because my readers can come up with some amazing photos. Even there could only be one winner, I want to congratulate all of those who submitted photos on some truly great work!

So, without further ado, the winner of a signed copy of Matt’s new book, Layers: The Complete Guide to Photoshop’s Most Powerful Feature, Second Edition is:

Photoshop Evangelist Contest Entry

As today is the deadline for entering the Next Photoshop Evangelist Contest, I thought I would share my entry with all of you. If you’ve been following me on my Jason D. Moore Photography Facebook Page or on Twitter, you’ve seen me post this before.

Each video has to be no more than two minutes (check!), use Photoshop CS5 (check!), teach one of the new features in CS5 (check!), and incorporate the concept of “20” in the final image to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Photoshop (check!).

Once they have all the entries, the judges will be weeding out the videos that don’t fit the criteria and select up to 12 finalists. At that point, between September 8th-20th, voting will open up to the Photoshop Facebook Community and the video with the highest number of votes wins.

2010 BIG Photo Contest Update

Jason D. Moore Photography - 2010 BIG Photo Contest

Please excuse the inconsistent posting lately. Liam and Kim have been my focus lately – as they should be! – and the blog has been taking a back seat as I work on developing a routine to keep it going.

To that end, I’ve setup a Jason D. Moore Photography Fan Page on Facebook where I’ll be posting my updates rather than through my personal profile. In August I will be cleaning out my Friends list in my personal account to include only friends and family. So if you have connected with me on Facebook and haven’t done so already, please head over to the fan page and “Like” it so you can keep up to date with everything going on with Jason D. Moore Photography. You can also follow me on Twitter @JasonDMoore.
