Hey Gang: I’ve been taking a few days off for the Holidays, so I’m in “lame blogging” mode, but I’m stepping in for a last-minute save with a few FREE tickets to Matt’s Lightroom 5 Live Training Tour coming up at the end of January and into March.

Just post a comment here, with the city you want to go to, and we’ll pick two winners in each city for a free ticket. Here’s the upcoming cities for Matt’s live tour:

  • Covington, Kentucky — January 31st
  • Richmond, Virginia — February 5th
  • Houston, Texas — February 17th
  • Los Angeles  — March 3rd

Here’s more info on the tour, along with class schedule for the day. Good luck everybody (and Happy Holidays!)


P.S. I’m shooting the Eagles/Cowboys game in Dallas on Sunday — I’ll share some of those shots next week.
