'Man Dreams of Flight...Owls Wonder if This is Wise'
Just giving a little shout-out to art photographer extraordinaire, Susan Tuttle, and her amazing, totally fun, online digital manipulation workshops. Starting this evening, she is running three summer workshops (simultaneously): Digital Layers and Photomanipulation 1 and 2 with use of Adobe Photoshop Elements and Adobe Photoshop/CS. Click on this linkie to read all about them. No need to have much background with these programs...a desire to learn will see you through. Well, and a little propensity for diving off the high dive :>]]
The absolute BEST part of Susan's workshops (I've done two so far) is that you can work entirely at your own pace. The month long courses are divided into three "projects" per week so you can work on one, or all three...or none, if life takes over for a bit as it often does. Or you can work like a maniac and create to your heart's desire! It's not at all like having homework due on a certain day. You are your own taskmaster. If you're prone to "night owling" it like I am, much can be accomplished in the wee hours of morn.
I posted about Digital Layers here and Digital Photomanipulation here. Also, Susan set up a Flickr pool for all the participants and this is where one can have a pretty amazing time watching what others are creating.
If you've ever had an inclination to explore this kind of world I'm not sure you could find a more generous (with her knowledge & helpfulness), creative, and all around sweet person to be your guide. Guess you can tell I'm kind of a fan. I know this post is short notice but don't dismay. More workshops are coming this fall...some *new*!
'Man Dreams of Flight...' is composed of four layers. My Flickr linkie is here if you'd like to see the image sources. What a world there is out in pixel land. Please do let me know if you're venturing there...
