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.
