Ok, I know. I haven't posted anything in like two weeks. (Yes, I say like a lot. I've gotten better, but it still slips in and I felt this post was appropriate to include a few extra "likes".) I have a good excuse. Actually a ton of good excuses. I have so much to tell you all! Soon. I'll post about it all in pieces or your head will be swimming as much as mine is.
So, Blogshop happened...and it was awesome!! I am so glad I invested in this opportunity. Not only did I meet great people, but I learned a ton about Photoshop and blogging. I learned so much, but I have been so busy (with other major events!) that I haven't been able to practice my new Photoshop wizardry. But believe me, when I show you what I can do you will be impressed!
I was feeling so guilty about not posting in a while that I thought it was better to post something, than to wait to post until I can use my new skills. That is this post. Same old format. My intentions are good.
This was class. My seat neighbors were so nice and everyone really tried to help each other. This was really tough stuff we were learning in a very short amount of time.
This is Bri. One of our teachers and creator of Design Love Fest. Bri was a great teacher and really believed in teaching methods to help make our blog unique and easy to customize. She is an inspiration to girls like me who want to take control of our future and believe that if you work hard at something you can be successful.
This is Angela. She was our other teacher and is an amazing photographer. Angela has a passion for the details and really made sure that if we needed help with a specific tool or concept that we understood it before moving on.
Some of the things I learned: photo retouching, masking, tempates, healing, text on photos, using a Wacom tablet, animated giffs and a lot of other really fun things. I promise to make a decent effort at showing you some of these tricks in my next post.
I have so much more to share with you. SO much more. I've been a busy girl and am working on some really exciting things. I promise that my game is about to be seriously stepped up. And I can't wait to tell you all about it.
