Jason D. Moore's Monthly Photo Contests

Though I’m not back to my regular schedule quite yet, it is time to look at the results of the April Photo Contest!

I’d like to start off by thanking our guest judge, last month’s winner Victoria Pickering, for helping me select the images this time around. I would also like to extend a special thank you to Mpix for sponsoring this month’s prize – a 24×36 Canvas Gallery Wrap. Thank You!

Friday Photo News & Updates

I’d like to start off by thanking everyone who responded to Wednesday’s post about continuing to build our Photoshop & Photography Community. I truly appreciate you taking the time to share a little bit of your stories with everyone. If you haven’t shared yet, please do! I’d love to hear from as many of you as possible!

There is a lot going on over the next couple of weeks through the beginning of May – personally, here on the blog, and across the digital imaging industry.

4 Exciting Photo-Related Plans in the Works

With all the attention in the photo industry focussed on what’s going to be happening down in Orlando this week at Photoshop World it can be easy to forget about all the other great things going on in other regions of the community. Now, I love Photoshop World and NAPP and I look forward to when I can make my way back to one soon. But I want to make sure you are all aware of some really cool plans coming up here at Jason D. Moore Photography.

Points of View Photo Project #29

Points of View Photo Project #29 - Source ImageWelcome back for another week of the Points of View Photo Project!

This week, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we’re taking another look at the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge that I featured the other day. Shot in Northern Ireland on March 18 2005 while I was on vacation to the region my grandmother’s family was from.

After looking through the different entries this week, be sure to download the images for next time – offered by our regular contributor, Hendrik Demey from Belgium. They are “three bracketed images (+/- 2EV), taken this winter on the domain of a local small castle.”

Enjoy this week’s images and I hope you will join us next week!

Points of View Photo Project #28

Points of View Photo Project # 28 - Courtesy of Chris MooreHappy Friday everyone! You know what that means, it’s time for the 28th installment of the Points of View Photo Project!

As I mentioned last week, this week’s source image comes all the way from Antarctica courtesy of my brother, Chris.

For those of you who might be new to this photo project of ours, each week I post a source image (either my own or user-submitted) that is straight out of the camera without any post-processing whatsoever. Anyone is free to download it, edit it however they like, and return it to me with an explanation of their processing so I can post it with the other submissions.

But why keeping trying to explain it when you can see how it all works for yourself with this week’s source image. Enjoy!
