NEXT WEBINAR

Tuesday, April 19, 4:00 p.m. (Eastern time)

“Creative Word Art & Print Layouts”

In this webinar I will show you some creative ways to add Type/Word Art to your images utilizing layer styles. I teach you what I look at when setting up word art (how to choose fonts and how to make the words ‘fit together’). I’ll also show you how to set up a template in Photoshop so you can have cards printed.

We covered some aspects of working with text back in webinar 16 last summer, but this will delve into even more ways to work with type and add interest to an image for printing or for a wall hanging.

AND…NOW IN THE PEACOCK STUDIO…
The Notes for this Webinar are available!

Includes Notes, Images, TIFs of my word art and card template in TIF format for you to use!

BARNS & BACK ROADS WORKSHOPS

Spring is just around the corner!

Come join us in Northeast TN for a Spring or Fall “Barns & Back Roads Workshop”! 3+ days of photographing old barns, houses, stores, and more (maybe some old cars and even some landscapes)!

We begin the first day with a complimentary welcome dinner to get to know each other and plan the next three days! I plan on having you photograph two full days and on the 3rd day photograph for a bit in the morning, then we’ll work on images. Bring your laptop if you have one, or you can watch me demo on mine. Car pooling is mandatory on this workshop (you’ll ride with me) as many areas have little parking. We’ve gotten to know many property owners and we’ll be able to access those properties up close.

Optional add-on: We have two guest rooms (one with a queen bed and one with 2 twin beds) so you can stay with us. There are two hotels within five miles of the house as well.

Come enjoy our beautiful corner of Tennessee!

$595 per person
Limited to just 3 attendees per workshop!
