A Late Sunday Sampler + Exciting News!!

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the delay this week. I was busy on Sunday at the Durham Fair Photography Building all day (12 long hours)!! It was a great exhibit – over 1,000 entries in prints and digital.

This week’s Sunday Sampler has a few different creative images. One is a “blurred” sunset, one is a B&W of peeling paint with several filters applied to create a sepia grain, and the other is some pretty clouds (great to replace a boring sky, or add drama to an image). Enjoy!



Topaz is releasing an update to the fabulous Texture Effects TODAY, Tuesday, September 27th (I had to wait till midnight to tell you about it!). And the coolest part – yours truly has 20 textures included in the update! I’m so excited!! Not only does it have bunches of new textures, there are also some cool new preset “recipes” that are quite cool – some very subtle and some quite dramatic.


This steam train has “Wild Horse Tour” applied…

…while this barn has 3 of my newly included textures applied!


If you already own Texture Effects it will be a free upgrade – and if you don’t, now is the time to grab this fabulous program! Click HERE to get the sale price of $59.99 until Oct. 30th (reg. $69.99). Use the code TFX2 at checkout.



I’m very happy to share the news of our upcoming “Creative Photography Conference”! SAVE THE DATE – May 20 & 21, 2017 in Southern Massachusetts!
