July 15 – Sunday Sampler

This was the weekend for the 73rd New England Camera Club Council Conference (NECCC) at UMass, Amherst, MA! Always a fun weekend of learning and creativity. Great to see old friends and make some new ones. With almost 1,000 people, you’re sure to do both! If you’ve never been, mark your calendar for July 12-14, 2019, for the next big event! Details at www.NECCC.org.

I was thrilled to receive one of NECCC’s highest honors – the designation of HonNEC (Honorary Member of NECCC). Ten years ago I received my MNEC (Master Member of NECCC).

Congratulations to Jacob Mosser III, HonPSA, EPSA, HonNEC, who received NECCC’s highest accolade of Honorary Life Vice President. Jake has been involved in the Conference for many years, and held many positions. And congrats as well to the 3 MNEC awardees – Josh Goldin, Alan Kidawski, and Frank Zaremba; and one ANEC (non-New England contributor) to Marc Farb of Sigma. Kudos to all!


This week’s Sunday Sampler is a varied assortment – B&W Lines (actually a rug); wood grain and a red patterned fabric! Enjoy!


On September 23rd I will be doing an all-day hands-on Photoshop Workshop for the Capital Champlain Section of PPSNYS (Professional Photographers Society of New York State). The event will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (registration at 8:30 a.m.) and will be held at Moscatiellos Italian Restaurant, 99 North Greenbush Road, Troy, NY. The event is open to non-members as well as members. (Click images below for full-size flyer.)

One thought on “July 15 – Sunday Sampler

  1. Thanks Meredith for the info on the NECCC and the great Sunday Sampler! (I’m looking forward to your webinar on StudioMagic–I’ve been playing a bit with it but not finding it as versatile as TOPAZ or some of the other editing apps. I’ll be interested to see how you use it.)
