Tuesday Roundup

In Giveaways, News & Stuff, Resources, Within The Frame by David10 Comments

Yesterday was a long day shooting in the sun, my brain’s barely up to more than a roundup of some things I’ve been intending to mention.

In Giveaways, Within The Frame by David

Several readers have emailed me saying they just got notice their pre-order was now shipping from Amazon. Folks that ordered direct from Peachpit are getting similar notices. So while May 11 is the official release, looks like Christmas is coming …
