Almost Finished...

I'm almost finished with my Photoshop class! I have two more lessons to do and then hopefully I can find the time to play around with the different techniques. I should have been done a week and a half ago, but I haven't even had a chance to work on anything. I will be starting a photo editing class, as soon as I finish this one and then I will start a 6 week intensive photography class in September, then after that I will take a 4 week intensive Portrait Photography class, so I think I will be pretty busy, to say the least! I will be sharing my work on my blog as I go. Just to warn all of you......I probably won't be doing a lot of my regular blogging for awhile because I really want to focus on my classes, but I will be sure to blog, once in awhile. I am so excited to learn as much about photography as I can and in the meantime, you can be sure that I'll be taking tons of pictures!

Lesson 11: Selective/Spot Recoloring

This is one of my favorite hummingbird pics, but I prefer the whole pic in color, so I think I will do this technique with a pic I took of a yellow rose bud. I know it will look better! This was the easiest lesson so far.....seriously, I couldn't believe how easy it was!

Lesson 12: Storyboards
Ok, I didn't think about changing the background to a different color until it was too late, so I'm stuck with white, unless I redo it. To make it look better I added a border around the pictures, as well as the whole storyboard. I resized it for the web and now it looks so small that you can't see the pictures very well.......but you get the idea, I guess. This would look really cool framed and on the wall! (actually, I just remembered, you can click on the picture to see a closeup!)

  4. Sara, the great thing about these classes is the fact that they are self paced. She emails you the video lesson each day and you can do it at your leisure. The videos are yours to keep forever, so you can refer to them, as often as needed. It's really fantastic!
