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.

Jason D. Moore Photography - 2010 BIG Photo Contest

Well, it’s been a great summer for the 2010 BIG Photo Contest and I’ve been greatly impressed with the entries submitted! I am thrilled by the response again this year with so many beautiful shots shared. Great job to every one of you for your hard work and vision. I love that you made it so hard for me to make my selections!

I would also like to send out a huge ‘thank you’ to my sponsors who have been so supportive in donating the prizes for the winners. Please take some time to visit their sites and check out what they have to offer. They are some great companies with great products and services.

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.

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.
