Hazel Meredith has been taking photos since she was young, but really began developing a style and focus in the early 2000s when she joined a camera club. She likes photographing lots of subjects including landscape, florals, and macro As well as old barns, buildings, cars and trucks, of which there are plenty in Northeast Tennessee where she moved three years ago. Hazel also loves teaching and specializes in creative post-processing techniques with textures and software.
Why and how Hazel created this image
The gardens were beginning to fade, but the light was wonderful. Hazel caught this cosmos early in the morning with some dew drops still hanging on. She loves the moodiness that she created with her post-processing.
Flowers are one of the subjects that Hazel enjoys photographing. She likes to give her images a “mood” or “look” with post-processing to make them something special. For this image, she added one of her bokeh textures and then used Dynamic Auto Painter to give it the painterly look and add detail to the blossom. She has recently begun experimenting with Dynamic Auto Painter and found some effects that she really likes. Hazel always tells others to experiment with their images and create something uniquely their own.
