okay, so i am just an absolute beginner, and i don’t want to embarrass my awesome blogshop teachers bri emery and angela kohler too much, but i learned so freakin’ much at weekend’s workshop, i can hardly stand it. i just want to keep making blog posts all night & day – it was that much fun. i have been flying by the seat of my pants in photoshop – never before taken a class, and to finally know what i’m doing, is just so satisfying. i made these post layouts in blogshop class, and while nothing too crazy — i’ve never even worked in photoshop layers before this — let alone opened them up! we learned masking, layering, barreling, and then some serious retouching techniques, not to mentioned animated gifs (things could get fancy around here)!
blogshop was awesome and inspiring, and i can’t recommend it more highly. really – we had a blast, barely wanted to stop for the delicious lunch, and met some wonderfully talented classmates at teahouse studio, where the worskshop was held. blogshop is traveling the world – so if you want one in your city, let them know! i think they are working on blogshops in paris and berlin. i suggested london, baby! how does that sound?
