First PhotoShop Lesson with Kim Klassen!


How easy Kim Klassen makes it to  learn PhotoShop.  (The button is on my sidebar)  She supplied her own photos, but this is one I took and wanted to see how I did on my own.  I think the above is a vast improvement over the photo below and this is just the tip of the iceberg.  No textures or anything fancy yet.  I erased the wires and took out the telephone pole and changed up the exposure a bit.  I'm really happy with the way this turned out.


And...


Now, I'm not saying that this shot is an award winning photo. But since we were working with barns, I thought I would stay with the same subject.  The above is quite an improvement over the shot below.  I erased some of the "dots" and look at the "bubble" on the door.  Gone!

Bravo, Margaret. That Kim Klassen is a true inspiration to many of us. She was our guest writter at Vision and Verb over the weekend. :)

Texwisgirl - I'm trying to be disciplined. And with the weather so nice outside, it is working so far.

Bonnie - I only had one class! I have to squeeze in the second tonight before the new one tomorrow...

Patty Ann and Carol & Rosie - this is so much fun and I love seeing my not-so-good shots improved or utilized!

JL Dodge - No! Do try it. If anything, it makes me go outside to take more photos and observe the world more closely. Both great things!

Ginnie - I will have to check V&V out tonight as well. I've gotten behind on my blogging what with Will home last week. But that is a good thing! :)
