Sunday Sampler + Sedona + Featured Speaker

Happy Sunday – the sun is finally shining in CT after several days of rain and gloominess!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of doing a 4-hour hands-on workshop for camera club members in Palmerton, PA. We covered the basics and beyond of Photoshop Elements. Thank you to everyone who attended and for treating Dave and I to a yummy lunch! I look forward to the next session!

If you have a group of 6-12 who would like to learn more about Elements, PS CC, Lightroom, textures, etc. in a “hands-on” workshop, send me an email!

I always say that textures can be found anywhere! This week’s Sunday Sampler consists of textures from the hotel we stayed at in Pennsylvania! Rug and wallpaper – slight modifications in PS and Topaz! Enjoy!

Over the past month we’ve featured our guest speakers. The only one left is me! Most of you know me and my work, but here’s a short bio and a little bit about the seminars I will be doing during the conference.

     Hazel Meredith, APSA, MNEC, is involved with the photographic community on local, regional and national levels. She is currently secretary of the Connecticut Association of Photographers; a Vice President on the board of the New England Camera Club Council, and a member of the Greater Bridgeport Camera Club. She is also active in the Photographic Society of America (PSA).

Her photos have won many awards and competitions in both local club competitions and international salons and she has had several public showings of her work. In 2008 she received an honors distinction of Master Member of the New England Camera Club Council (MNEC) during its annual conference and in 2012 received the PSA Service Award. In September, 2013, she was awarded the distinction of APSA from the Photographic Society of America at their annual conference.

Hazel teaches at many New England camera clubs as well as photographic conferences and events throughout the U.S. She also offers workshops and travel photo trips through her company, Meredith Images. She released her first eBook, “Working with Textures & Overlays: Turn Ho-Hum into a Work of Art” in October 2015.

Hazel enjoys being active in the photographic community and helping others find the joy and satisfaction in taking and perfecting beautiful images.


I will be doing a seminar on Saturday on working with the Topaz Suite of products and how you can utilize them in your workflow, as well as use them in “non-traditional” ways to change up your texture images to create new textures.

On Sunday I will show you how to create your own textures and brushes using Photoshop or Elements, and will be helping you photograph your own cool textures from scrapbook papers and of items around the property.
