Oct. 21 – Sunday Sampler

Happy Sunday! Holidays are fast approaching!! Yikes! Quite blustery today in CT after a nice Fall day yesterday.

This week’s Sunday Sampler consists of cracked paint on old train cars at the New England Railway Museum where we did a night shoot last weekend. Enjoy!

FEATURED SPEAKER – JOHN BARCLAY

Registration is under way for our 2019 Conference! We have an awesome line up of speakers for you this year. I’ll be featuring them here on the blog as well as on the website.

Our first featured speaker is John Barclay, an amazing photographer, fellow Topaz speaker (John recommended me to Topaz as a webinar presenter), inspiring and a nice guy!

“John is an award winning freelance photographer based in Bucks County PA. He is a passionate photographer and enthusiastic workshop leader. John is also an inspirational speaker sharing his program ‘Dream – Believe – Create’ to audiences around the Country.

John was personally selected by Dewitt Jones to participate in his www.healingimages.org project. John’s work has been published in a number of magazines and books and has been used by Nik Software, Topaz Labs and Lensbaby in their advertising campaigns.

Recently, John was the recipient of an excellence award from B&W Magazine.”

John will be presenting his “Dream-Believe-Create” program at the Creative Photography Conference, as well as doing a session on creating with Topaz. He will also be one of the two Pre-Conference presenters with a hands-on Topaz class.

Check out all the details at https://www.meredithimages.com/creative-photography-conference/.

And don’t miss out on the “Early Bird” registration – now through Nov. 30th!

 

 

Exciting – although unexpected – as of Friday I no longer have my full-time job! Layoffs throughout the company (I’d been there almost 17 years!). Sad to miss my co-workers, but relieved as well. I won’t miss being micro-managed!

So…this gives me more time to pursue more photography projects for my own business! Stay tuned…I WILL be finishing my second textures eBook (that I’ve been trying to do for over a year); I will be offering more training – in-person and by webinars; adding some new products to the Peacock Studio; and some other things as well! I’ll probably be even busier than when I was working full-time.

I will be heading to Cape Cod on Thursday to judge as the Cape Cod Art Center Camera Club, then spending some time Friday photographing with Betty Wiley (who will also be a speaker at our Creative Photography Conference).

Next up will be my 11th Topaz Webinar on Tuesday, Oct. 30th at 5:00 Eastern Time. Sign ups should start soon on the Topaz site – keep an eye on THIS PAGE.

Join Me for a Webinar TONIGHT!

TONIGHT is my webinar with the guys at LayerCake, makers of Studio Magic for a webinar showcasing their new “Epic Location Sets”! This is a set of over 1200 backgrounds divided into 7 categories: Africa on Location; America on Location – Route 66; Scenic America; Wild West; Doorways to the World; Scenic Europe; and Urban Chic.

Take your subject and place them into a location – no backdrops or studio set ups needed!

Check the webpage for some great examples – HERE! And register for the webinar on Oct. 18th at 6 p.m. Eastern Time. If you can’t watch live, sign up anyway, get some freebies and get a link to the recording after the webinar ends.

Now these may have been created with portrait photographers in mind, but you know I like to be different!

I photographed this car with a busy background, but put it into one of the Epic Locations, used StudioMagic for a little more creativity, and created a whole new scene! Also watch to see how I use a background as a creative overlay!

Sept. 30 – Sunday Sampler

Happy End-of-September! Another busy month flown by! Pulled out most of our veggie garden this morning – sad face! Did leave the grape tomato plant – still producing fruit!

This week’s Sunday Sampler is 4 versions of one texture – a texture I photographed in the restroom at the location of my workshop last weekend in Troy, NY!! I told everyone they needed to take some pics (and I did see a few doing so)! Textures are found EVERYWHERE! This was some great painting techniques on the wall.

#1 is the original with Clarity and Detail; #2 is Topaz Impression Cave Dweller; #3 is Simplify-Buzz Sim Split Toned I; and #4 is #3 with a hue/saturation adjustment to make it green (great for a background on flowers). Enjoy!

 

Released this week – A.I. Gigapixel 2.0!

• Using GPU mode is now 5x faster! With some optimizations to the GPU processing in A.I. Gigapixel, we’ve improved the speed of processing by around 5x on full-size images (it scales based on the size of your image, so a small image might be 3x) with the same 1-2 million calculations per pixel and the same amazing results.

And don’t forget about all the powerful updates from A.I. Gigapixel 1.1 released earlier this month.
• Expanded system compatibility with a CPU mode, which allows more users without a robust GPU to run A.I. Gigapixel on their machine.
• 6 new Artificial Intelligence models for different scaling (200%, 400%, 600%) across three settings for input image quality:
– None – For high-quality images without noise, results in much better detail retention
– Medium: Improved versions of the included enhancement models
– High: For images with lots of noise and artifacts, produces a smoother artifact free enlargement while retaining and enhancing perceived details in the image.
• Resolved issue with not retaining DPI sometimes
• Resolved sizing issue with size not passing through correctly sometimes

Click HERE to check out all the details of the amazing product. Reg. price $99.99 – save 15% when you click on THIS LINK and use the code MeredithImages at checkout.

Here is one of my images that I processed – the original was sized 4″x6″  – I enlarged it 600% to 24″x36″ – the detail is amazing!

You can batch edit, as well as process single shots. One more amazing product from the folks at Topaz Labs!

 

From Creative Bloq – the 29 best iPhone AppsA few of these I have – a few I’ll be checking out!

The gang at Design Cuts is turning 5 this week! This is one of the best companies for bundles of goodies – textures, fonts, clip art and much more! Bundles sell for a reasonable $29 for TONS of great products. They also have a marketplace where you can find individual products. Watch for lots of freebies and special deals during the Birthday Bash!

Their latest bundle is “The Deluxe Textures and Patterns Bundle” – $2321 value for just $29! Check it out HERE!

 

And a couple of new product releases from ThinkTank Photo.

Emergency Camera Rain Covers

With Think Tank Photo’s new Emergency Rain Covers, photographers need no longer be caught off guard by bad weather. The Emergency Rain Covers are a simple, compact solution for protecting photo gear from sudden downpours or dusty conditions. These seam-sealed rain covers can be quickly and easily deployed when outdoor conditions change.

The covers are designed to fit both DSLR and Mirrorless cameras and are available in two sizes to accommodate a range of full-frame lenses. The Emergency Rain Cover – Small protects a 16–35mm f/2.8, a 14–24mm f/2.8, a 24–105mm f/4, or a 24–70mm f/2.8 lens. The Emergency Rain Cover – Medium protects a 24–70mm f/2.8 or a 70–200mm f/2.8 lens.

“When compressed, the Emergency Rain Cover fits into a small pouch, so it’s easy to bring along even if rain is a distant concern,” said Think Tank’s President and Lead Designer Doug Murdoch. “It takes up so little room in your bag, yet could save your gear when a sudden downpour or dust storm hits. Every photographer who shoots outdoors should keep one tucked one away in their camera bag.”

Features include:
• Seam-sealed for extreme protection in downpour or dusty conditions
• Compresses into an included compact carrying pouch
• Oversize window to view your LCD and controls
• Ability to access your camera through one cinchable sleeve
• Mountable to tripod or monopod
• Dual viewing configurations for varying conditions
• Hot-shoe mount keeps cover secured to camera during use
• Non-slip, adjustable strap attaches directly to the lens hood
• DWR coating for an extra layer of protection

New “Lens Case Duo” Provides Enhanced Camera Lens Protection

Being a photographer is about getting to the right location at the right time — which can often be challenging.  To help photographers protect their lenses from the rigors of travel, Think Tank Photo has just released the Lens Case Duo series of six quick-access, dual-opening padded lens cases.  A zippered lid and side opening is a unique feature compared to other lens cases.

With the Lens Case Duo, photographers can protect their delicate lenses while transporting them in rolling cases, backpacks or shoulder bags.  These cases can then be converted into a modular system for quick access in a bag or on a belt.  A shoulder strap is included for the six larger sizes: Lens Case Duo 5, Lens Case Duo 10, Lens Case Duo 15, and Lens Case Duo 20, Lens Case Duo 30, and Lens Case Duo 40.  Two exterior stretch pockets provide space for a lens cap or a cleaning cloth. Soft zipper protectors and a plush lining protect sensitive and expensive lenses from scratches.  All sizes come in black and green.

“The Lens Case Duo should be used by every photographer concerned about protecting their lenses, especially while in transit,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo’s President and lead designer.  “While our roller and backpack dividers provide ample protection, the Lens Case Duo provides just that extra protection layer that could help prevent damage in unforeseen circumstances.”

GEAR CAPACITY

  • The Lens Case Duo 5 holds a Canon/Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6, Canon: 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6, Canon/Nikon 50mm f/1.4, Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6 AF-S, or Olympus: 12-40mm f/2.8, 40-150mm f/4-5.6

Sept. 23 – Sunday Sampler

Hi everyone! I missed sending out a post last week as I was in TEXAS! Check off another state from my list. It was hot, hot, hot! Austin & Dallas.

Got to visit my friends at Topaz Labs and meet them in person! Keep reading for some great info!

 

This week’s Sunday Sampler is some textures from my hotel rooms! Rugs, wallpaper, tile – they all make great textures! There are six instead of three since I missed last week. Enjoy!

 

Some exciting news that I can share – and some that I can only tease about!

We scheduled my next Topaz Webinar for Tuesday, October 30th – watch for some Halloween-themed projects!

Yes, Heath is a real person! It was wonderful to meet him, Joe, Rose and Alan, the founder of Topaz. Great bunch of people!

A.I. Gigapixel Updated! A great product is even better! It has faster processing, new settings for even better results – it is amazing to watch the programmers in action (with their PhDs!).

STAY TUNED….for a new Studio Release soon with a feature I’ve been hoping for — can’t tell you yet, but you will love as much as I am going to!

 

I will send another post during the week with some other cool things from “Around the Web”. Preparing this on Sat. and heading out to do my all-day workshop tomorrow at PPSNYS in Troy, NY!

Have a great weekend!

Sept. 9 – Sunday Sampler

Happy Sunday! FINALLY feeling a little like Autumn today!

For today’s Sunday Sampler, I took an ordinary image of some Sedona Red Rock gravel, and modified it 3 ways in Topaz. An example of how you can take a texture and create MANY other textures from that one image. You can also change the color palette, blur it more, etc. Enjoy!

 

A.I. Gigapixel 1.1 Update –
Smarter, sharper, resizing, made even better.

With the latest update to A.I.Gigapixel™ the first and only intelligent image resizer for your computer just became even more powerful. With additional options for image enhancement, 3 sets of new Artificial Intelligence models to resize high-quality input images or even images with a lot of noise. We also refined the A.I. in the existing models to produce even more accurate results.

If you had trouble running the application before, we’ve just added CPU processing so A.I. Gigapixel can now run on most computers!

If you already own A.I. Gigapixel, of course the upgrade is free. If you haven’t purchased yet, CLICK HERE to head to the Topaz shop and save 15% with the code MeredithImages at checkout.

P.S. the black & white bird shot in the store and video is one of mine! I was amazed at how well A.I. Gigapixel enlarged a 4×6 photo 600% with even more detail than the original!

9-2 Sunday Sampler

Happy September!! This summer was exceptionally hot and humid here in CT (as this coming week will be too). Can’t say I like that kind of weather – Fall is definitely my favorite along with Spring – nice to be outside when you can breathe and enjoy nature!

 

This week’s Sunday Sampler consists of some subtle wallpaper textures. These are wallpaper from a place we had breakfast while on Cape Cod last year. I must confess – they were taken in the ladies room!!! Your cellphone is your friend when you need a camera! I liked the way these looked like coffee stains – very subtle! Enjoy!
