March 10 – Sunday Sampler

Happy Sunday! SPRING AHEAD! Hopefully you remembered to set your clocks ahead last night (except for our friends in Arizona)!

This week’s Sunday Sampler consists of rocks! I took a very “grungy” rock (actually almost looks like tree bark) and gave you several versions and colors. Enjoy!

THE EBOOK IS DONE!! It’s heading to the printer tomorrow to have DVD’s made (it’s too big for a CD!).

I will begin emailing links later this week to those who purchased the Electronic Version. The DVD’s should arrive right around the end of March and will be mailed as soon as I get them.

I’ve extended the $5 off Coupon for pre-order of the 2nd eBook till 3/17 (CODE: preorder5), and I’ve added a $5 off Coupon for Book 1 (if you don’t have it yet – CODE: firstbook) which also expires 3/17. You CAN use both of these coupons at checkout if you’d like to order both books.

I’m very excited about this new book – it has twelve projects that take you through various ways of working with textures, overlays, gradients, type and layer styles, brushes and much more. It’s 117 pages chock full of creative inspiration! All images and textures used in the projects are included so you can work along with me. And there are bonus sets of textures and brushes as well as a list of my favorite resources!

Head over to the Peacock Studio store on the website and grab your copies! https://www.meredithimages.com/products/

And while you’re in the store, be sure to check out my texture selections – I am working on some new sets and plan to have them added in the next week or so.

And while you’re over on the website, be sure to check out the upcoming Creative Photography Conference, May 18-19, 2019 in Southbridge, MA.

I’ve posted bios for each of our speakers as well as the seminars they will be doing and some examples of their fabulous work. Also posted is the Conference Schedule.

This will be the last New England Conference – don’t miss out!

  1. Hello Hazel

    I’m so looking forward to the conference. A question for you: all the speakers look so amazing – do we get to hear all of them, or do we need to choose which event to attend at various times? If we have to choose – do you have a schedule set up yet we/I can look at? Didn’t find one on your website.

    Thank you,

    Atala Dorothy Toy

    1. Hi Atala, You will year everyone on Saturday unless you choose to do some shooting. Sunday will have multiple things going on. I did just post the schedule yesterday on the conference page of my website at https://meredithimages.com – click on the conference tab and scroll down. Thanks

  2. this may be a stupid question but what does one do with the textures one downloads.Do you have to search for them every time you want to use them?

    1. Hi Carole, I suggest creating a folder on your computer (however that fits into your file structure) and save your textures there. If you have a lot of textures (as I do),l then you can create sub-folders based on subject matter (rocks, grunge, skies, etc.) or by colors, or the method that would make it easiest for you to find what you need when you’re working on an image. Hope that helps!
      Hazel
