Instead of taking a class, I'm going to teach myself PhotoShop, using my own images and document them here daily.
I LOVE the duck photo! Wonder why you went so black and white with the canvas photo? I would have enjoyed seeing the effect with the color still in. I am enjoying following your projects. I've used Photoshop for years, but had never tried the "soft light." A good technique to know!
Thanks, Jean. I'm glad you got something out of it. The image is still in color though it is hard to tell with this effect:)
