So I’m happy to say I finished strongly with an A in my Post-production class I have been taking the past 6 weeks.
This is a composite image consisting of three separate images morphed together to create one. Shadowing and logo added, as well as other photoshop techniques. It is rather basic by standards in the PS world.
I’ve known my skills had been improving for some time now, but I was particularly and genuinely pleased when my Professor asked if he could use my submission in one of his teaching videos he uses for his class. It was beyond nice to get that kind of recognition and I of course told him that I would be more than happy for him to use it! 🙂
I feel a special sort of connection with this Professor; because he is a good one, and always, always took the time to help me when I needed it, as well as give me true tips on how to improve my overall abilities.
Also I feel for him. His wife of 30 years passed from breast cancer during this period, and he STILL went out of his way for all of us in the class. My mother also went through breast cancer and a double mastectomy; I relate in some fashion; so I of course offered my condolences and positive vibes to him; wished him peace and healing. I really think he was not only surprised, but genuinely appreciative. It just amazes me how strong some people can be in times of turmoil. It was actually a rather good lesson to learn, and taught me a lot about perseverance. I will miss this class.
All in all I’m proud of myself. I worked for a goal, and achieved it yet again. Two years ago I wouldn’t have even tried.
Just sharing because I said in a previous post that I would.
Every day I am more and more glad that I made the decision to actually apply myself in something that will directly affect my future in a positive way. Worth every single penny of these student loans I’m racking up. (currently at 14k)
I had a good day despite crying twice due to Math anxiety. I had a friend help me through it. To him I am greatly appreciative. You’re a true friend, thank you so, so much.
Never give up and never stop trying. The small things add up to full on steps forward to positive and healthy. This I promise you.
Love yourself. You’re totally worth it. Xo
