Luck was on my side two weeks ago when I received a last minute email telling me a spot opened up for Blogshop LA, a 2-day intensive Photoshop bootcamp. The course is lead by design maven Bri Emery of Designlovefest and LA-based photographer Angela Kohler. I was hoping the class would dust off my photo-editing skills and teach me a thing or two about visual design.
It did this, and more!
I met some fellow LA creatives, drank mimosas at 9am and took home an awesome goodie bag. A midst all the fun, I definitely learned a lot. Here are some of my new skills:
1. Color manipulation

2. How to create a GIF
3. Dropping images into shapes
4. Creating mood boards
5. Free-hand writing on a digital drawing tablet (I like this one)
