Back To School

by Camellia Staab September. 19, 2018 357 views

I didn't go back to high school this year.

Didn't go back to the huge three story building, with 1000+ students.

Didn't open my classroom to 130+ students.

Didn't write extensive lesson plans to teach others.

Instead I decided to do some learning of my own.

My goal.........to learn Photoshop.

Some of this learning is with You Tube videos, others are coming from my friend Sydney, who is has been extremely patient with me.

Today I tried my hand at twirling. Found a very easy step by step tutorial on You Tube and followed along .

Used one of my own photos........

....... followed along with this video and came up with this twirl.

I must say it is a very relaxing way to play with photos and start a morning :)

For a 5th grader, that is excellent work. The secret to photo manipulation is patience, and all about the details.

Ram...I believe that Camellia posted a link to the video. I'd be happy to help you out, in anything Photoshop. Now I am teaching Camellia, via Facebook/Messenger....and email.
