I have been taking a Photoshop class over the past few months. I never used Photoshop before and I remember last summer when I was trying to finish my thesis and wanted to create a mosaic of SEM photos. I tried for about 1 1/2 hours but left for the day completely confused and without anything to show for my effort. That same night I casually mentioned my problem to my friend Alex, and 5 minutes later he created my mosaic. I was dumbfounded.

So this past semester, I enrolled in a Photoshop class at CCSF. I am no longer confused about the program and can navigate my way around. My last assignment was to place a rubber duck behind the splashing water. This is what I came up with.

So the other day our friend Andy sent this cute photo of their baby Sadie. The photo makes me laugh every time I see it!

As soon as we got the photo, Betsy called dibs on making it her background on her iPhone. I was jealous until...

I made my own!

I love Photoshop!

Oh. My. Gosh.

My husband is brilliant.

Steve! You've got SKILLZ! Love your work. Maybe one of these days you'll give us a floating Betsy head.

Your PS skills are really coming along. . . OK- I could hire you for $7.50/hour? What d'ya say?

Steve said...

Robyn- that would be awesome! But I think minimum wage in the city is $9.50ish. Just saying

How much does it cost to take a class? I've been thinking about selling lessons
