30 Day Photography Challenge Wrap Up!

Well it’s November 1st…and I’ve officially made my way through the 30 Day Photography Challenge!  Thanks to Our Wired Lives for organizing this challenge… I’ve had a blast, pushed myself to be a bit more creative…and get back behind my camera! The other amazing thing is I’ve found some new blogs, and written by some pretty awesome people…so glad to have a few more on my list to check out!  I honestly can’t believe that the month is done…it just went by so fast!  I suppose what they say is true…time does fly when you are having fun!

I decided get out of my comfort zone..and attempt to put together something with Photoshop.  I’m a bit scared of Photoshop. See I can admit when I’m scared of things! I will admit though I shouldn’t be scared of a computer program. Especially Photoshop you see, I have had a few mini-tutorial/classes back in 2009 I did learn how to do some pretty awesome things. (The only problem was when I opened up Photoshop on my old computer–well it caused my computer to crash–SEE I HAVE A REASON to FEAR this PROGRAM!) I suppose because I had this fear, I never used the program, and I forgot what I learned…fast forward to this spring, I got a new computer!  And I got a copy of Photoshop…but I still rarely open it on my Macbook Pro (perhaps I’m worried Photoshop will crash the new computer?)It’s an irrational fear…one that I need to get over!

But about 2 weeks ago I decided that I might just have to open that program up and try to work with it…

I had this idea I wanted to create a calendar to share all my challenge photos in one spot. I talked to Morena about it (she’s a Photoshop, scrapbooking genius!)…she was like, “You could do that!” So one Friday night I took my computer over to her place…and we sat side by side on her 2 person couch…and I learned how to put my photos into a ‘calendar’, how to create fonts-match colours from the original graphic…and make sure layers are in the right order so they don’t overlapped!  (It was kind of crazy…but I DID IT–and am pretty PROUD of my new SKILLS!) Thanks Morena for helping me realize that Photoshop isn’t so scary!

Here’s my 30 days…

It’s been great fun participating in this photography challenge!  I’ve had a blast looking at other’s photos that were participating.  I have found a few new blogs to read which is always fun too!  Because October has 31 days… I’ll be back with one more tomorrow!
