Back in the days, I remember sitting in front of the computer for hours and hours, skipping meals and losing precious sleeping time. I was never a fan of anything virtual, until I discovered the bliss of retouching photos, doing my own logos, brochures and posters, and my, I can even sculpt my waist and make my face as smooth as a baby’s butt cheeks. Adobe Photoshop. I can, but I usually don’t. I’m not a celebrity, and my photos won’t come out on glossy covers, so the last thing I want is to transform me to, erm, not me. Just like good makeup, Photoshop should improve your flaws and enhance your assets, but not leave you plastic and mannequin looking. I heard Brad Pitt requires that his photos be published untouched while Jennifer Aniston once recalled a magazine title US wide because “SHE WAS NOT” the one in the cover.
I was recently invited to join a one-day Photoshop workshop, and since there are a lot of new features and improvements from my college Jurassic days (man, I lived during the Adobe Photoshop 7 era!), so who am I to say no?
Easy on the laughter folks. I’m no Pro. =)
I hope the week is treating you right, good night everyone!I'm not yet hitting the sack, I still have a date with CS3! =)
