Oct. 23 Sunday Sampler + Much More!

Hi everyone,

We got back from our trip to beautiful Sedona last night! Thanks to my workshop participants: Ray, Colleen, Phil, Pat, Joyce & Carole!

We’ve already had requests for another workshop in Sedona next fall – watch for details after the New Year.





This week’s Sunday Sampler is some animal skin textures from “Out of Africa” in Camp Verde, AZ, one of the stops on our workshop!


NEW WORKSHOP – DEC. 10, 2016

Join us for a day in Bethlehem, PA, to photograph the beautiful holiday decorations (with a private tour of some of the buildings), visit the National Museum of Industrial History (newly opened this past July), and photograph the remains of the Bethlehem Steel “stacks”. It will be a day filled with all kinds of photography, and if we’re lucky, a touch of snow!

Early bird sign-up price (by 11/15) $65; after 11/15 $75. Max 15 photographers. Sign up on my website: http://www.meredithimages.com/product-category/workshops/



2017 PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT – Who wants to join me?

I found this great article on TechRadar today – “52 Photography Projects: A photo idea to try every week of the year.” I think this would be a great project to start Jan. 2017 – I just set up a separate Facebook Group for the project so you can post your images – https://www.facebook.com/groups/1311524515525331/?fref=nf. It’s a fun way to get us all to think outside our comfort zone. I’ve been wanting to try some of these, so if I do it with a group, I’ll be more inclined to get it done! Don’t worry if you miss a week here and there – I know life gets busy for us all!
