Occassional blogger, photography enthusiast, apparel designer, engineer and a big believer of God. In my spare time I love to create DIY projects or chase the bliss of solitude, sipping a cup of nicely brewed coffee, munching some yummy cookies while reading a good book in a new place with a great view.

Ask Me First, I Might Say YES

Weekly Photo Memes

It's really flattering to be receiving questions like, "are you a professional photographer?" For me it's some sort of validation that I'm doing something interesting, enough to capture their attention. But really, I'm no pro, not even near it. It's a hobby that I find so therapeutic just like blogging. It's one way of squeezing out my creative juices and sharing it to my friends.

Actually there are no secrets, a lot of helpful resources are available on the web guiding us how to come up with meaningful photos. Of course, familiarization with your camera, be it dslr or point and shoot, and knowing its functions are the initial steps followed by creativity, instinct and practice and ultimately a knowledge in photo editing will definitely create a big difference.

I've been introduced to Photoshop7 along with Illustrator since 1997, took a short course required for my work and since then had been very useful for me in many ways. Now there's Photoshop CS4, packed with more features but I'm still using my older version since I'm more familiar with it. Just recently, the in thing among photographers is LIGHTROOM.

What's the difference between Lightroom and Photoshop? Lightroom is where I manage my photos, from importing it from my camera to processing it and then showcasing from there all my images. It makes the life of any photographer more organized and more polished. While Photoshop is my major editing tool where I have the freedom to do anything I want to my subject.

Interested to know more about this and learn, you can sign up to this free webinar course for Photoshop and Lightroom. I've already enrolled for these two courses as I'm interested to bring my knowledge to a higher level. Just clicked on the image to direct you to their webpage. All the details are enumerated from there.
