Dear User Group members,
I suppose most of you are preparing to head out on your summer travels. Before you do, we want to send you off with the tools to help you capture those unforgettable moments.
Check out David duChemin's podcast series where he offers photo critiques to help you enhance and express your photographic vision. Once you've taken all those vacation shots, Cher Threinen-Pendarvis and Donal Jolley will help you turn them into fine art using the techniques in their beautiful four-color book, Beyond Digital Photography.
If you're planning to shoot video, Chris Breen's The Flip Mino Pocket Guide will have you shooting, editing, and sharing that summer vacay in no time!
And for those who plan to use the time off to brush up on your Photoshop or CSS skills, we have something for you as well.
FOR PHOTOGRAPHY GROUPS
Share your photos on our Within the Frame flickr group and David duChemin, author of the recently released Within the Frame, could select your image to critique in an upcoming podcast episode! You can check out all current podcast episodes on Peachpit.com.
