Book Review: Scott Kelby’s Lightroom 3 Book

Scott Kelby's Lightroom 3 Book for Digital PhotographersI recently had the pleasure of reading Friend-of-the-Blog Scott Kelby’s third installment in his series of Lightroom books. The Lightroom 3 Book for Digital Photographers is an excellent guide to help you get up to speed with the latest version of the standard in digital darkroom software.

Whether you have been using the program since the beginning or, where the book really shines, if this is your first time sitting down with Lightroom you are treated with Scott’s signature humor and easy to follow teaching style so  you can be up and running from the very first page.

Points of View Photo Project #27

Points of View Photo Project #27 - Columbus Skyline - Courtesy of Marc BentonWelcome to the 27th week of the Points of View Photo Project!

This week we are fortunate to have a source image from Friend-of-the-Blog Marc Benton of the Columbus Skyline. Thank you Marc!

We have 6 versions for your enjoyment this week! I am excited for the continued growth of the project and I encourage you all to give it a shot for next week. We have a special image at the end of the post that comes from my brother, Chris, from his recent trip to Antarctica.

So have a look at what we all did to process this initial photo and, who knows, you might learn a little something too!

Points of View Photo Project #24

Points of View Photo ProjectWelcome to the 24th edition of the Points of View Photo Project here at Jason D. Moore Photography!

UPDATE: New deadline for submitting your version of the image for week #25!

Each week readers from all over the world tackle a common source image and display it to show the many interpretations, perspectives, and approaches that can be taken from the same starting point. I always fins it interesting how a single image can be manipulated and processed to express such different feelings and emotions.

If you are new to the project, or if you’ve been following along regularly and would like to participate, be sure to scroll to click on “More…” and scroll down to the bottom to download the source image for next week and learn how to submit.

But now, on with this week’s images!

Points of View Photo Project #22

Welcome to the 22nd edition of the Points of View Photo Project! This week we have been lucky enough to have a chance to work with not one, but three source images from reader and blog contributor Steve Kalman who challenged us to produce an HDR image, if we were so bold to try it.

Read on to see what some of our regulars have done with these photos and to learn how you can grab next week’s source image and participate in this excellent project that gets your creative juices flowing, invites you to experiment and try new things, and opens you up to the different perspectives that can come from a common image.

Also, be sure to scroll down to the bottom to find out how you can share your photos and a source image for one of our upcoming editions of the project!

The Results Are In: October Photo Contest!

Jason D. Moore's Monthly Photo Contests

It’s that time once again to announce the winner of the latest Monthly Photo Contest!

As it is every month, I am both excited at the number of entries and daunted by the many excellent images submitted. I am also pretty stoked by this month’s prize. The lucky winner is going to be receiving one of their images sublimated on a 16″x20″ piece of metal from our friends over at IGT America. I have one, myself, and it is not only an amazing process, it is also a very unique way of presenting your work.

So, without further ado, the winner of the sublimated photo print is:
