NOW SCHEDULING CAMERA CLUB SEMINARS FOR 2021-22 SEASON!
Is your camera club, conference or organization looking for programming that is instructional, informative
and fun? All seminars can be tailored to your group’s specific knowledge levels, and can be done via Zoom or in-person at a conference.
I have already scheduled ten clubs for the new season (most clubs meet Sept.-June). I am adding two new seminars – “Discover Luminar AI” and “Get Creative with the Nik Collection”. Other sessions include “Creativity with Your Smartphone”, “Working with Textures & Overlays”, “Creativity with Textures & Composites”, “Alternative Visual Artistry – Creative Post-Processing”, “Unleash Your Creativity with Topaz”, “HDR Imaging – the Natural Look”, and either Photoshop CC or Photoshop Elements for Beginners, Intermediate or Advanced levels. My list has descriptions of each session – email me for a copy!
And, I am running an early-bird booking special if a session is scheduled by August 31st. Have your program coordinator email me ASAP at Hazel@MeredithImages.com to get on my calendar!
