What a glorious weekend it has been here in Connecticut! I took off work Friday for a “play day” with the New Haven Camera Club at the beautiful Elizabeth Park Rose Garden in Hartford. It was quite windy when I got there in the morning, so I decided it would be a perfect day to shoot some creative images and get some nice blurs to use for backgrounds.
I used Topaz Detail, Adjust & Impression to create this painted rose:
Sometimes we just have to work with the conditions that are presented and make the best of it!
I sent out a newsletter yesterday with some Meredith Images updates and some cool links to Photoshop tutorials. If you’re not already a subscriber, head over to the website at www.MeredithImages.com to sign up!
This week’s Sunday Sampler is a composite of two textures – old wood and old paper. I then created variations by changing the colors to a sepia look and shades of grey. Enjoy!
In the Newsletter I mention our workshop this Fall in Sedona, AZ. It will be October 15-18. We will start on Sat. night with a group dinner, then begin with a visit on Sunday to “Out of Africa” in Camp Verde for images of beautiful tigers and lions, giraffes and more; Monday to the Gold King Mine/Ghost Town in Jerome for some “rusty” stuff as well as some architecture in Jerome; and Wednesday, plenty of images of the beautiful Sedona red rocks including Bell Rock, Courthouse Butte, the Chapel of the Holy Cross, Cathedral Rock at Red Rock Crossing, and sunset from the airport overlook. The price will be $375 per person and include dinner Sat. night and admissions to the above locations. I will be checking around for some accommodation locations. If you are interested and would like more info, email me at Hazel@MeredithImages.com.
PEACOCK STUDIO at Meredith Images
As I mentioned last week, I’m getting ready to get the “Studio” store open and post textures, brushes, frames and more for sale. Stay Tuned over the next couple of weeks!! Don’t worry – I’ll still be doing the “Sunday Sampler” too!
Have a great week!
