Learning the basics of Photoshop

Written on July 3rd, 2010 by sassymomno shouts

Recently, I enrolled in a basic Photoshop class with Leo Castillo of Photoworks Academy. I enrolled because I wanted to learn how to enhance my photos and with Leo as the teacher, I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed. I took up basic photography class with him and I truly appreciated his approach.

I was right! I learned the basic techniques of Photoshop and more– Less lecture but more on actual, hands on training. I never thought I would learn so much in four sessions coming from zero based knowledge, but I did!

After learning the basic skills, I thought it was enough but he included a couple of advanced techniques like the liquify, blur and other effects. I had fun throughout the session.

Now, I have learned that all those magazine covers are enhanced through Photoshop. It’s interesting how you can make a person appear younger just by some quick touches using Photoshop. Good thing I still wouldn’t have to do it on my own photo but if I have to, I’d probably do, just for appearance sake. But before that happens, like any other women out there, I am trying to delay the ageing process by using anti-wrinkle creams as early as now.

There are a lot of anti-wrinkle creams out there that are recognized by dermatologists, it’s up to you to choose the best that will work for your skin.

As much as possible, we want our beauty to be as natural as it can be not a Photoshop-ed beauty.

Do anti-wrinkle products really work?

Everyone wants to look young and in search for the perfect anti-aging product, even the average health consumers are spending bucks to get the results they want. Do these products really work?

As for me, I have been a believer of many facial products especially the ones that enables the skin to retain the moisture it needs.

With a lot of anti-wrinkle products coming out in the market today, the effectiveness of these products really depends on a lot of factors. These factors include exposure to harsh elements like the sun and other environmental pollutants, presence of an illness and of course, ageing. As a person ages, the skin loses its elasticity therefore diminishing the ability to retain moisture and skin cells divide a lot slower. Consequently the skin becomes dry. Dry skin is more prone to wrinkling.

Anti-wrinkle creams that are available over the counter may improve (to some extent) the appearance of your skin but do not expect an instant facelift. In using a product that promises dramatic improvements on your skin, it is always best to do your own research regarding its active ingredients, the proper usage and of course the price, so you can get the best value for your money.

The web offers a great deal of relevant information regarding product information such as anti wrinkle cream reviews. It is up for you to discern what product will best suit your needs.
